Pre-Order. Available on September 13Newly refreshed with a contemporary redesign, Pascual and the Kitchen Angels tells the story of the patron saint of cooks and kitchens with luminous illustrations by the beloved Tomie dePaola.
When Pascual is born, angels sing from the trees. So it is no surprise when he grows up and wants to join a monastery to help the poor. But when Pascual meets the friars, they send him to the kitchen to cook for them.
Poor Pascual! He doesn’t know how to cook, so he prays. And that’s when the kitchen angels swoop down and prepare a feast so delicious that the friars want him to cook every night. What can he do?
Tomie dePaola’s charming text and vibrant, fully refreshed illustrations reminiscent of Italian frescoes capture the beauty and humor of the story of Pascual, patron saint of the kitchens.
