An old tale retold with brilliance,
This review is from: The Lion, The Unicorn and Me (Hardcover)
The donkey wins an important job in the face of stiff competition. Even the lion and the unicorn were upstaged by the donkey with no claims of fame, fortune, strength, mystery - just the humble abiity to get on with the job.
The illustrations have depth and brilliance; they repay study for their intricate detail. The theology is there, love and mystery and the world turned upside down. And unlike all other nativity retelling, the birth is there in all its rawness and tenderness. The angels and the donkey trumpet with joy.
This book is wonderful.
