Publisher Summary

“Muller’s richly detailed illustrations emphasize Mary’s humility and serenity.”-Publisher’s Weekly A long time ago in the Holy Land lived a scruffy little donkey who hated hard work. And then he met gentle, kind Mary, and his world changed forever. When Mary and Joseph have to travel the long journey to Bethlehem, who can they rely on to get them there safely? This is a unique version of the traditional nativity story, told from the child-friendly perspective of the little donkey, who grows in confidence and pride as Mary and Joseph place their trust in him. The story ends with the wonder of the birth of Jesus, and the little donkey’s promise to keep looking after his new family. Adapted for younger children from Gunhild Sehlin’s classic chapter book, this Christmas story is sumptuously illustrated by Hélène Muller, with marvellous details of the Holy Land.
