The Christmas Donkey
More than anything else, Michel wants to get his grand'maman a donkey for Christmas. Though short of money, he has plenty of courage and determination. Amidst the mountainous country of southeastern France, Michel finds himself delivering bread, herding goats, and making business deals. For all his efforts—some of which tumble him headlong into trouble—his funds grow slowly, and Christmas is coming quickly. With Grand'maman’s growing concern about Michel's apparent sudden avarice and his friend Julie's continuing belief in him, Michel’s own hopes and desires unexpectedly come together for a truly unforgettable Christmas Eve.
