Paul Gallico's The small miracle
1st Picture-Book ed.
The first-ever picture- book version of Paul Gallico's classic story of friendship and faith "Once there was a boy named Pepino who lived in the mountain town of Assisi. He had no mother. He had no father. He lived in a stable with his donkey, Violetta. Violetta was everything to Pepino." Then one day Violetta gets sick, and nothing seems to help. Pepino is sure that if he can just bring her into the crypt of Saint Francis, who loves all animals, she will get well. But can he convince the priests to let him try? Paul Gallico's tale of one little boy's pilgrimage of faith has touched hearts the world over. Master storyteller Bob Barton's lyrical adaptation, beautifully illustrated by Carolyn Croll, will introduce a whole new generation of readers to this moving classic.
