Note: 
The biblical story of Daniel in the lions' den is given a cartoon treatment in this slight but amusing picture book. Big, bold illustrations that exaggerate the characters for comic effect roll along with a story that plays on a familiar childhood refrain which, in this version, is spoken by the lions. "What time is it, Mr. Angel?" they ask, as a super-hero angel distracts them from Daniel for dinner. Finally, it's dinner time and Daniel's enemies are lowered into the den as the king has Daniel pulled out. There is no Jewish content to speak of, except for the story's biblical origin, but young children will enjoy it.
