dc.description.abstractA kind and simple man and his grandson take his last possession to market across the desert. Grandfather and desert are nice adaptations of the traditional fable. Another great adaptation takes a moment to show itself, as we see first the townspeople looking at them with wonder, for--we learn by turning the page--they are carrying the donkey upside down! The excellent illustrations are done in paper collage with pastel. The donkey tumbles down into the river and runs off, leaving man and grandson with nothing at all, except for the wisdom that . . . to prosper, they must follow their own hearts. A treasure of a book!en_US
