Summary
"The soldier unfurled his fingers and held up the thing that he had hidden in his palm. The object caught the light and threw it sparkling into the trees. The girls drew a breath, their hearts leaping. There, on the soldier's palm, stood a shining silver donkey. / One bright spring morning in the woods of France, a soldier, blinded by the war, is found by a little girl named Coco, and her old sister Marcelle. In return for their kindness, the soldier tells the sisters marvelous tales, each story connected to the keepsake he carries in his pocket: a perfect, tiny silver donkey. As the days pass and they struggle in secret to help the soldier reach home, Coco and Marcelle learn the truth behind the silver donkey, and what the precious object means: honesty, loyalty, and courage." -- Container
