Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0805064125, Hardcover)Gossamer wings, fluffy white wings, scissor-pointed wings, wooden wings... once, long, long ago, before birds and butterflies and bugs and windmills had wings, a little boy appeared with a bottomless bag of wings to distribute. No one knew where he came from, but everyone loved him... except, maybe, the jealous wind. Caldecott Honor artist Peter Sís (Tibet: Through the Red Box, Starry Messenger, Madlenka, etc.) illustrates this whimsical little story by Jacques Taravant, a former French diplomat, of how angels came to be. A touch of sadness permeates the tale, setting it apart from many American stories. The boy, though devoted to his mission, grows tired and discouraged after a while, and is only "uplifted" by the love and gratitude of thousands of newly winged creatures. This book can be a gentle touching-off point for parents and kids to discuss spirituality, selflessness, and even death. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter

After giving wings to eagles, owls, nightingales, pigeons, ladybugs, and all sorts of creatures, a small boy is given an appropriate reward.
