The story of the miller, his son, and the donkey is a fable that has been told in a variety of ways through different venues for a number of years. It has been included in Aesops Fables and has found a home in literature in the Near East, the Middle East and Europe, dating back to medieval times. Jon J. Cardwell presents his mirthful rendition of this beloved story in metered rhyme, telling the tale of a miller that must sell his mule when his farm has fallen on hard times. The miller, his son, and their mule set out for the fair to sell their mule at market, and on the way, they encounter people that offer advice on how they should travel. A tale told in rhyme, the story may be easily grasped and understood by young children- and delivered in common meter, the story may also be sung to several familiar tunes, such as Amazing Grace, Joy to the World, or Am I a Soldier of the Cross. The illustrations are big and colorful, and the books dimensions (8.5 x 11) make this a great tool for story telling times in group settings.
