On Angel Wings

Magical reworking of the Nativity by Michael Morpurgo. Eight-year-old Rachel joins her brothers and sisters for the first time as they visit their grandfather, Amos, as he carries out his annual ritual of a night in the hills. Grandfather is delighted to see the children and tells them how Rachel reminds him of a magical night. He explains how, as a young shepherd boy, he was flown away by the angel Gabriel to be the first visitor to the newly born Christ child.
