Pascual and the Kitchen Angels
G.P. Putnam's Sons, 2004 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
When Pascual is born, angels fly down and sing to him from the trees. When he sings to the sheep as a little boy, they sing back to him. But when Pascual joins the Franciscans, they send him to the kitchen. Pascual doesn’t know how to cook even a cup of beans! That’s when the kitchen angels fly down, and delicious dinners appear on the friars’ table night after night. Finally the friars peek in to see how Pascual does it, and what they see shows them what a blessed man is living among them.
Exquisite illustrations reminiscent of Italian frescoes capture not only the beauty of the story but the warmth and humor that suffuses it. Children and cooks alike will smile as they get to know Pascual and wish they had their own kitchen angels.
