Product Description

Stone Angel by Jane Yolen, and illustrated by Katie May Green, is a riveting story that takes place in Nazi-occupied France. For a young girl and her family, this time is a dangerous time as they are forced to leave their home, migrating first to the woods, and eventually to Spain and finally England seeking refuge from the danger that comes from being Jewish in Nazi-occupied Europe. The little girl learns the language of silence and all the while knows that the stone angel, that stood stoically outside of her home in Paris, is a constant guardian watching over her family. Breathtaking and arresting illustrations, this story offers an interesting perspective on a very heavy subject matter.

Publisher's Description

The Nazis may have taken their home, but the family still has a guardian angel

In this emotionally rich story, a little girl and her family live happily in Paris until Nazi soldiers arrive druing World War II. She and her family must flee or risk being sent to a concentration camp, so they run into the woods, where they meet resistance fighters. But they're still not safe. They must cross tall mountains and sail in a rickety boat to England. Yet the whole time they're struggling to survive, the little girl thinks of the stone angel near their apartment in Paris and imagines it watching over her family.

Offering a never-before-told story of the Holocaust, Jane Yolen returns to the material she mined in the award-winning THE DEVIL'S ARITHMETIC. Filled with sorrow, hope, comfort, and triumph, this gorgeously illustrated book is sure to become a modern classic–offering adults a perfect vehicle with which to share a difficult subject.
