Alfred's Special Place
Finding Sanctuary Now and Forever
by Paola di Paolo

Alfred’s Special Place is about a donkey who wants so badly to belong and be helpful at the farm where he lives. But because people have not taken care of Alfred, his hooves are sore. Poor Alfred cannot walk much less chase the coyotes away from the lambs on the farm. The farmer gets angry because Alfred is not doing his job. The farmer wants to sell Alfred. Alfred hides in a special place on farm where he feels safe. But winter is coming and Alfred has no hay to eat. Alfred is cold and hungry, and all alone, and very sad. But Rebecca, the farmer’s daughter, wants to help Alfred and has a secret plan. One day a woman and a man come to find Alfred. But Alfred has to learn to trust the good people who want to help him.

Once he learns to trust people, Alfred has a very special reunion in a very special place – a sanctuary now and forever.
