A young donkey learns from his wise mother to trust in God through good times and bad as he hears a bedtime story about his ancestor - Balaam's donkey, his mother's long-ago trip to Bethlehem, and his own task for the next day.

Tomorrow you will be ridden by a stranger, said Zeesha's mother to him softly one night.

A story came to me one day that tied together three biblical donkeys and two strands of spirituality I've come to treasure - Celtic imagination, where donkeys can talk and angels are visible - and child's version of the Ignation First Principal and Foundation, where each creature's unique character is truly God's glory. - Mary Ann Archer
