What a beautiful story. I bought this book for my grandson, who is 5 and the whole family enjoyed it. The message that everyone is important and that we should all be helping each other, was delivered beautifully. The art work was superb. I highly recommend this book. Linda

A very touching story about a donkey who was not very happy at the farm in which he lived. The other animals said he was useless and weak. One night the donkey had a dream that he saw himself walking along an open road that would lead him to a place where magic would be. All the animals laughed at him, but they wanted to come along. When they arrived at a city street they came upon a bronze statue of a donkey and the donkey spoke about the war and how he carried over 300 men whom would have died if they didn't get them to safety. Back and forth through gunfire they carried the injured and dying to safety. And he was only a donkey. The animals all held their heads down low and that night the animals gave pleasant sayings and the donkey now was very happy. At the end of the book, it gives a bit of detail about the 'man and his donkey which I found it a great way to finish the book.
