by Karen Goldman

While other authors turn their attention to archangels and guardian angels, Goldman's turf is the angel within. These brief poetic jottings are meant to encourage the "aspiring angels" in all of us to flex their wings. The messages, which range all the way from wise and uplifting to sweet and sometimes saccharine, are wonderfully complemented by the fanciful and colorful illustrations of Anthony D'Agostino.
