A Donkey’s Little Tale: BUY NOW

Preparing for the journey to Bethlehem in order to register for the census, Joseph groomed the gentle donkey colt chosen to accompany him and his bride, who was with child. Along the way, the charming little beast of burden committed to memory all he saw and heard along the way in hopes that his intuitive insights and attention to detail would be passed down for generations to come. Little did he realize he would be a witness to the birth of the Christ Child, never dreaming he would be pressed into the service of a King. Thus, the little chronicler fills in many gaps in the love story of Joseph and Mary, and the joyous birth of Jesus. This is his little tale.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: A few days after Christmas and ten years ago, Ronni Scott spent her devotional time reading Matthew 1 and Luke 2 and wished for more information about Joseph and Mary’s journey to Bethlehem. She desired more intimate details of the Christmas story and prayerfully asked God questions and was struck with A Donkey's Little Taleinspiration. At the end of three hours she wrote a poem etched with pencil in a spiral notebook that would become the manuscript for A Donkey’s Little Tale (Ambassador International; October 2014; $17.99, hardcover). Now ten years after that December morning Ronni is sharing her prized story with the world.
As she studied, Scott realized there was another figure that accompanied Mary and Joseph on their journey — a donkey! “The child in me took over,” recounts Scott. “I began to imagine what that donkey saw, felt and heard.” A Donkey’s Little Tale begins with Mary and Joseph’s difficult trek to Bethlehem, chronicling their stay at the stable and ending with the glorious arrival of baby Jesus.
In addition to writing A Donkey’s Little Tale, Scott also played an integral part in the illustrations. Using her beloved Georgia Lizella clay, Scott sculpted each scene of the book. The sculptures were then translated into sketches and illustrations by Brittany Huskey.  Scott is still working through a 300 pound supply of clay, mostly crafting pieces for family and friends.
About the Author: R. MITCHELL SCOTT, Ronni, is an Air Force veteran and former school and art teacher. She and her husband have three grown children and three grandchildren. She loves to bake and has mastered the art of fudgemaking, assuring her popularity during the holidays. Ronni graduated with honors at both Columbus State University, Georgia and Asbury Theological Seminary, Florida, earning a Bachelor of Science degree specializing in Art, and a Master of Biblical Studies respectively. Ronni loves getting her hands dirty in Georgia’s Lizella Clay.
