  • Illustrated by Irene Blasco

The first in a trilogy of children’s books telling heartwarming, age-appropriate, stories with captivating illustrations, about a young girl Claire, a veal calf Gabriel she rescues, and their journey to change the world we live in.

Gabriel is a beautifully illustrated and engaging story of a young girl named Claire and her rescued veal calf named Gabriel. Claire grew up in a time when people turned off their feelings toward animals and ignored the damage being done to our planet. Mother Nature sent a warning to the adults as the climate changed and a deadly virus engulfed humankind. Our young protagonist Claire takes matters into her own hands rescuing a veal calf from certain death. Through Claire’s journey to save her beloved Gabriel and the planet, our young readers learn about love, compassion, and making good choices. Claire’s brave and bold decision teaches and inspires her parents and humanity—captivating young readers and everyone that reads Gabriel.
