Where were the angels when God created the world? Why did an angel force a donkey off a road? Who did the angels get out of jail twice? Young readers will find answers to these and other questions in this exciting storybook, written by bestselling author Allia Zobel Nolan with illustrations by Alida Massari. Angels in the Bible Storybook gives children a fascinating look into how God’s powerful behind-the-scenes helpers interacted with Bible greats from Abraham, Lot, and Gideon to Zechariah, Mary, and Jesus himself, acting as messengers, protectors, warriors, and more

My thoughts:  Fascinated by angel stories?  These are real accounts of angelic sightings told in story form. Most of the stories are familiar, such as Mary and Joseph, the Wisemen, Samson's parents, and Abraham and Isaac, but some are less well known, as the angel who fought a battle for King Hezekiah.  Suitable for children for Biblical bedtime stories (or just cuddle time) but also for adults who collect all things angel.  The stories are well-written and filled with colorful artwork which is sure to hold a child's attention.  Recommended.
