There are times when no song brings solace and no story consoles. But for those who really can’t find sleep, there’s always the Angels of the Night…
We’ve all known the night terrors; the fear that strikes before you go to sleep — and that’s just what the child in this book is suffering from. Every evening, the child lies terrified of the long dark night ahead, even though his mother does her best to soothe him with the song of the Fourteen Angels. And the man is sleepless too. Neither milk and honey nor his wife’s soft touch can help him find sleep. When the two insomniacs find each other they discover that »when two people are happy together their joy grows, and when two share their fear, that fear shrinks«. The poems about the Angels of the Night work wonders; every one of them helps in its own way: the Midnight Angel, the Angel of the Spirits, the Angel of Denial, the Angel of Stories, the Springtime Angel and the Angel of Slowness.
