"A humble donkey hears of the new King's birth and journeys to Bethlehem. Along the way, he struggles through brambles, is sneered at by a camel, disdained by a lion, and laughed at by the other animals. The little donkey feels so worthless that he begins to stumble until a great light guides him to his destination, where the baby reaches out his hand. . . . This story stresses that Jesus welcomes even the most lowly, and Watts' watercolors overlaid with crayon-like texture are appealing and rustic".--"School Library Journal".
