God Bless the Gargoyles

God Bless the Gargoyles

by Dav Pilkey Illustrated by Dav Pilkey

Behind their cold, stone faces, gargoyles have warm, loving souls  yet most people don't look deeply enough to notice. Angels can see the good inside them, though, and tonight the angels will sweep down to take their silent, stone friends on a magical journey, hand in hand.

Caldecott Honor artist Dav Pilkey's lyrical tale of these gentle stone creatures come to life is a reminder that everyone    from the grievers to the dreamers to the believers    is worthy of love.
