Format: Hardcover
Angels & Monsters: A Child's Eye View Of Cancer by art therapist Lisa Murray and professional photographer Billy Howard is the impressive result of an eight year project in which Murray worked with children and had them express their feelings about their cancers through their artwork -- and then talk about their art. Howard took a photographic portrait of each child. The artwork and the portraits where paired and presented in a stunningly beautiful and thought-provoking exhibit under the auspices of the American Cancer Society, and which is memorably presented in the pages of Angels & Monsters. Sensitive, insightful, unique, and thoroughly "kid friendly", Angels & Monsters is highly recommended reading for any child (and their parents) having to cope with cancer, and would make a welcome and valued addition to any school or community library collection.

Great book, especially for parents who are dealing with a child with cancer. You can't find a more honest opinion or approach to dealing with cancer, than that of a child. Kudos to Lisa Murray and Billy Howard for sticking to their guns for 8 years and seeing their dream come to fruition!

Amazing .. the strength we can get from children. I knew Katie and she was a wonderful little girl. Her story continues here and she will always be in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. "Katie's Angel" is on the front of this book and on so many things she left to those who cherished and loved her. I can't see an angel that I do not think of Katie. She even wrote a personal cookbook and this angel is on the cover. The book is suitable for adults and children, because it gives us all hope and the power to be strong, sick or not. Nice pictures and very good reading... but you will fight a lump in your throat.
