A tired old donkey searches for food on Christmas Eve. Suddenly, he hears the sound of silver bells and galloping hoofs. Who could it be but Father Christmas, with a very special Christmas present for a lonely donkey."Ormerod's illustrations combine dramatic silhouettes, iridescent silver, and delicate line-and-watercolor pictures to create a sense of the mystery and wonder of a clear Christmas night." -- Booklist

From Booklist:

Ages 4-8. Originally published in England and broadcast on the BBC, this old story of an outcast who finds a home expresses abiding images of Christmas. The lame, shaggy old donkey is all alone in the cold of Christmas Eve when Father Christmas arrives bringing kindness and friendship: "There was a kind of shining round him." The donkey carries Father Christmas' sack of gifts for the children of the village. When day breaks, the old man leaves, but he makes sure that the donkey is taken in by a warm, loving family. Ormerod's illustrations combine dramatic silhouettes, iridescent silver, and delicate line-and-watercolor pictures to create a sense of the mystery and wonder of a clear Christmas night. Hazel Rochman
