    Lovely book of short stories and poems about angels by Yolen and gorgeously illustrated by David Wylgus Once a Good Man a good man is offered a reward by God, so the Chief Angel takes him to see Heaven and Hell, as he asks He saw long sweeping green meadows edged around with trees He saw long wooden tables piled high with food He saw chicken and roasts, fruits and salad, sweetmeats and sweet breads, and goblets of wine Yet the people who sat the table were thin and pale They devoured the food only with their eyes The people of Hell were bound fast to their chairs with bands of steel There were sleeves of steel from their wrists to their shoulders There was no way they could bend their arms to lift the food to their mouths There s a poem called The Angel of Mons about angelic figures seen by both British and German soldiers during a World War I battle.
