Angel & Soldier Boy

Peter Collington, Author, Janet Schulman, Editor Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers $13 (32p) ISBN 978-0-394-88626-8
In this captivating, wordless picture book, Collington tells of the adventures of a toy soldier and an angel doll while their owner sleeps. A swashbuckling pirate and his first mate, who live in the model ship on top of the piano, rob the little girl's piggy bank. The toy soldier confronts the two rogues, but is quickly overpowered by the captain. While the soldier is being marched away, the angel doll wakes up and pursues the toy soldier and his captors. Softly colored illustrations reveal the story with a depth and substance not always found in wordless works. Ages 48. (May)
