The Donkey and the Rock

The Donkey and the Rock Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two men are on their way to market when one man's donkey knocks over the other man's jar of precious oil. Confused and upset, neither man knows who to blame for the mishap. They decide to ask their wise and just king for help. He suggests holding a trial between the donkey and the rock, and invites all his subjects to the courthouse to witness the strange event. But instead of watching a trial, the audience itself gets a lesson from the king.

From the striking mountain range to the brilliant colors of the prayer flags and the monks in red and gold, The Donkey and the Rock gives young readers a taste of the beautiful country of Tibet, and shares the wisdom of a tale that emerged from it.

Synopsis:

From the striking mountain range to the brilliant colors of the prayer flags and the monks in red and gold, this fable gives young readers a taste of the beautiful country of Tibet. Full color.
