The Christmas Angels by Else Wenz-Vietor is a beautifully illustrated Christmas story originally published in Germany in 1933. Small children will love the row of cutout angel heads that reveal the features of another little angel as they turn the pages one-by-one.
On Christmas Eve, while most people are safely tucked in their beds, the Christmas angels know who needs help on this holy night, and they are ready to fly down to help those who are lost, lonely, and weary.
This is a beautiful and inspiring picture book that heralds the Christmas message of loving kindness with every page.
Else Wenz-Viëtor (1882-1973) was probably the best known children's book illustrator in 1920s and 1930s Germany. She was born in Sorau, now in western Poland, and it was from her grandfather that she acquired her love of plants and animals which would become favorite themes in her pictures.
In 1903, she illustrated the first of more than 150 books. She also worked as a freelance artist in the interior design industry.
