Richly illustrated with fine art, Saints and Angels describes the lives and works of many familiar and unfamiliar saints and angels. Among those included are the apostles, John the Baptist, Joan of Arc, and the first native-born American saint, Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton. Details of feast days and patronages are also discussed. Coverage includes information about choirs of angels, guardian angels and fallen angels.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3-6, younger for reading aloud. This is similar to other books on saints--an oversize format, museum artwork (here brilliantly reproduced), handsome design. But there's something special about it as well. Perhaps it's the simplicity of the writing or the fact that angels are also introduced. The book begins with a short introduction, What is a Saint? Then the saints are grouped together--the Holy Family, Jesus' followers, gospel writers, martyrs, thinkers, and saints associated with peace and healing, such as St. Francis. The better-known saints get a two-page spread with a full-page picture. Less familiar names are accorded one page, with the artwork as an inset. A border records each person's particular symbol, dates, feast day, and the group he or she watches over. The angels have their own section at the book's conclusion, with guardian angels and the choir of angels getting a group description, and individual angels, such as Michael, a separate presentation. A glossary and a list of feast days are appended. --Ilene Cooper Copyright 2003 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Impressively illustrated with masterpieces of Western European art, Saints and Angels by Claire Llewellyn offers a lucid, appealing introduction to the concepts of Christian saints and angels, and to the major exemplars of each type. The organization is unusually clear, grouping together the Holy Family, the early followers of Christ, martyrs, great thinkers and evangelists, and saints who promoted peace and healing (even a spread on American saints). Faithful color reproductions of works by Raphael, Fra Angelico, Giotto and the like, shown on full pages and in small insets within the text, imbue the book with a formal mood, enhanced by elegant border motifs and occasional art in the margins to illustrate saints' symbols.
