Storyteller Bob Hartman takes a very unusual approach to ten tales from the Bible. His stories are full of memorable language that delights children. Hartman's starting point is that every angel has its own characteristics: some shy, some brave, some practical, some playful. And each angel is perfectly matched to the task God gives it. Through this device, his retellings get right to the heart of the Bible stories, drawing out their significance in a way that stays in the imagination. The book includes the stories of: Hagar; Balaam; Elijah; Daniel; The Burning Fiery Furnace; Gabriel and Mary; The Christmas Shepherds; the Resurrection; Peter in Prison; and Paul's shipwreck.

Bob Hartman is a performance storyteller par excellence. He has been entertaining audiences on both sides of the Atlantic for over 25 years with his books and performances, which bring together retellings of Bible stories and traditional tales from around the world with his own imaginative stories.

His books are full of humour and insight, whilst his storytelling sessions are exciting, engaging, dynamic – and above all, interactive!

He is well known for his hugely popular The Lion Storyteller books, the Telling the Bible series, and the highly acclaimed picture books: The Wolf Who Cried Boy, Dinner in the Lions' Den and The Three Billy Goats' Stuff.
