Gargoyles have been feared and misunderstood for centuries, but now Caldecott Honor artist Dav Pilkey tells the real story of these gentle stone creatures come to life.
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.
Dav Pilkey has written and illustrated numerous popular, award-winning books for children, including the Captain Underpants and Dumb Bunnies series; Dog Breath, winner of the California Young Reader Medal; and The Paperboy, a Caldecott Honor Book. He lives with his wife in the Pacific Northwest. Visit him online at www.pilkey.com.
