This is a story about Christmas and this is a story about a donkey. The donkey's name is Henri. Henri enjoys many things; nature, the barn, the pasture, his friends-- and he loves to HEE and HAW. This becomes a problem when he learns he will be taking his mother's place at a special Christmas stable in the big city. Henri's struggle for self control and his reaction to his new experiences make this a charming and delightful Christmas story.

The book is illustrated with lovely photographs many of which were taken by Robert Flischel, noted Cincinnati photographer.
Henri was part of Books by the Banks.
