"This tender fable of peace will linger with both younger and older readers." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review) One morning in France during World War I, two young sisters stumble upon an astonishing find in the woods: a soldier who has walked away from battle longing to see his ailing younger brother. As the girls care for the soldier, he repays them by telling four tales about a humble donkey -- from the legend of Bethlehem to a myth of India, from a story of rescue in war to a tale of family close to the soldier's heart.
