This is the story of Abib - a rather naughty, but at the same time loveable, donkey who carried Baby Jesus' Mother Mary all the way to Bethlehem. When King Herod ordered everyone to return to the place of their birth, all the camels and horses were very quickly taken leaving a rather motley array of animals including Abib. Abib did his utmost to avoid selection as he was also rather lazy but when Joseph arrived he was^he only animal left. Abib soon realised that this was no ordinary journey and, helped by his friends Jaffar the Camel and Orion the Horse, he bravely fought off King Herod's solaiers and, like the three wise men, followed the star to Bethlehem where Mary gave birth to the little Baby Jesus.
predictible but watchable

this is obviously a straight to dvd effort, and it is predictible in the extreme, yanks arrive first followed by the germans, with initial hostility giving way to grudging respect. its all been done before and the only thing that holds the viewers attention is the knowledge that something will happen towards the end and sure enough it does, and do they all live happily ever after, only one way to find out.
