Item description for Pascual and the Kitchen Angels by Tomie dePaola...

Pascual, a boy blessed by angels at his birth, receives divine help when the Franciscan monks make him their cook.

Publishers Description

When Pascual is born, angels fly down and sing to him from the trees. When he sings to the sheep as a little boy, they sing back to him. But when Pascual joins the Franciscans, they send him to the kitchen. Pascual doesn't know how to cook even a cup of beans That's when the kitchen angels fly down, and delicious dinners appear on the friars' table night after night. Finally the friars peek in to see how Pascual does it, and what they see shows them what a blessed man is living among them.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pascual and the Kitchen Angels?

Wonderful book!  Mar 9, 2006
I really enjoyed this book. I have read many of Tomie de Paola's books and bought a few of them especially the ones with religious themes. They are simple but with a great story and message. I started this book with even knowing it was based on a real saint St Pascual Baylon and liked it very much.
What a gift  Oct 17, 2005
Children's books can be so wonderful... but are often void of any real substance. DePaola is able to integrate a lovely story with lovely pictures and lovely morals all at once. We got this book at the library and are now going to buy it. It's so nice to have your faith boosted by everyday stories read to a child.
MIRTH AND A MORAL  Jan 12, 2004
Few can match author/artist Tomie DePaola's gift for combining mirth and a moral to create an enchanting story for young readers. He has focused on the lives of saints in the past and he does so once more in this imagined tale of Pascual, the patron saint of cooks and the kitchen.

Beginning with Pascual's birth when angels sang his mother and father regarded their son with both pride and awe. At first, his father thought the boy might grow up to be a shepherd because of the tender care he took of sheep. But when he reached young manhood Pascual announced that he wanted "to be a friar and help feed people who are hungry."

So, his parents sent him to the monastery of Saint Francis. Imagine Pascual's surprise when the friars asked him to prepare dinner. Why, he didn't even know how to boil water! One thing Pascual did know how to do was pray. Amazing things began to happen when Pascual closed his eyes and knelt on the kitchen floor.

Young readers will relate to Pascual and to the cheery art panels that bring the tale to life.
