In the war-torn French countryside, two young sisters are enthralled when they find a blind soldier who carries with him a tiny silver donkey. Narrator Richard Aspel beautifully captures the time and place of Coco, Marcelle, "their" English soldier, and the kind people they enlist to help the soldier return home. Aspel also movingly retells several charming legends about the humble and kind donkey. Hartnett has created a classic with warm characters who decry war and help each other despite being handicapped in their own ways. Aspel brings these memorable people to life with an impressive scope of emotion and accent. This is an endearing tale suitable for all ages.
