The Silver Donkey Summary

The Silver Donkey by Sonya Hartnett

An inspirational illustrated novel for younger readers from the 2002 Guardian Children's Fiction Prize-winning author of Thursday's Child.

One morning in the woods of France, a blinded soldier is found by two sisters, Coco and Marcelle. In return for their kindness the soldier tells the sisters marvellous tales, connected with the keepsake he carries in his pocket: a tiny silver donkey. As the days pass and they struggle to help the soldier reach home, the sisters learn the truth behind the silver donkey and what the precious object means: honesty, loyalty and courage.

The Silver Donkey Reviews

Some books seem to have always existed. The Silver Donkey is one of them. It's a timeless piece of storytelling, and reading it is like rediscovering a long-lost classic. * The Guardian *
