Product Description

Beautifully illustrated, the true story of Christmas uniquely told by Mary and Joseph's adorable donkey, Clopper. There's only one thing Clopper likes as much as eating-that's an adventure! When Joseph, and Mary travel to Bethlehem, Clopper "he-haws" at the wonderful sights and sounds of the city. Weary from the journey, he settles in for the night. But that's when the excitement really begins! Written by a proven children's author, Clopper the Christmas Donkey is filled with fun illustrations by an award-winning artist, and skilled repetition and a familiar story make it perfect for young children. Recommended for ages 4 to 8.

    Clopper, the adorable narrator, tells about his experiences as Mary and Joseph's donkey. He tells of carrying Mary while they followed Joseph on a long journey. When they finally reached Bethlehem, the city was busy and he was tired, but they trusted God would provide a place for them to stay. Finally an innkeeper welcomed them to his stable. The animals slept until a strange sound woke them in the middle of the night -- a baby crying! Later a bunch of shepherds rushed into the stable. They told of angels and how they knew this baby was special ... "the Lord Jesus, the Savior of the world."Illustrated by Ed Olson, the book contains sweet cartoon characters. Best of all, scrolls are drawn into the illustrations which quote Luke 2:1-20 fron the NIV Bible. Ed Olson has over 25 years experience in media production, including work with Disney, Warner Bros. and Sony.What I Like: I love the parallel nature of the book -- a story at the bottom from Clopper's point of view and the actual Biblical accounts above. It's a wonderful reinforcement that Mary and Joseph were real people who really lived; that if they were real, then Jesus is real, too. And he really is the Savior of the world! The illustrations are cute and colorful.What I Dislike: Nothing.Overall Rating: Very Good.

Author/Artist Review

    Tell us a little about yourself.   Of course, as a children's author, I love kids! My husband and I have two grown children and six beautiful grandkids who fill our lives with sunshine. We're also in our twentieth year of teaching at Kids Klub, a mid-week program at our church. Besides writing, I enjoy working in my flower gardens or immersing myself in a good book — one written for adults or kids! In fact, when I visit a bookstore or the library, I usually end up in the children's section. Just mention the word "travel" and you've got my attention! We recently had the opportunity to visit the Boston/Cape Cod area and came away thoroughly enchanted.

    What was your motivation behind this project?   Clopper clip-clopped onto the scene when my aunt asked me to write a Christmas story to read to kids at church. That was a few years ago, so actually, Clopper the Christmas Donkey was the first children's book I wrote although the first ones published were the Twiggenbotham Adventures. Clopper and the Night Travelers developed after Ed Olson suggested a sequel covering the time in baby Jesus' life after his birth. I love Ed's rich illustrations and am thrilled with the finished book.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?   In both Clopper the Christmas Donkey and Clopper and the Night Travelers, I wanted kids to understand the unique position of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior even as a baby. I also wanted to show God's sovereignty and protection.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?   As with everything I write, I found that praying through the writing process helped me focus on the Lord and his direction for where the book would go. So the personal impact is seeing what God can do through his gift of writing if I give him the reins.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?   I remember finishing Hannah Hurnard's Hinds' Feet on High Places and thinking I'd like to write like that. I've also found inspiration in the picturesque writing of Max Lucado and Boede Thoene or reading theology so beautifully presented by A.W.Tozer and C.S.Lewis. Most of all, though, my greatest source of inspiration is in the Word of God himself.
