The Silver DonkeyBook - 2004
One bright morning in France, a little girl named Coco and her older sister, Marcelle, discover a soldier in the woods. The Great War is raging, and the man is a deserter, blinded in battle, trying to steal his way home throught the dark. The stranded soldier becomes the sisters' only concern, their precious secret, and together they smuggle him food, drink, and a pillow. As Coco and Marcelle conspire to see their new friend safely home across the Channel, the soldier enchants them with wondrous tales of honesty, loyalty, and courage---each linked to the keepsake in his pocket: a perfect, tiny, silver donkey.
