Lily’s Desert Adventure is the second book in a first reader’s bible series that tells the story of the life of Jesus through the eyes of a little donkey named Lily. In the first book, Lily’s Secret, the carrot-munching, care-free Lily overcomes her initial fear and self-doubt of her ability to fulfill a huge responsibility, to safely carry Mary and Jesus, the unborn child, to Bethlehem. Once Lily successfully completes her task and Baby Jesus had been born, she thinks they can all go home. But when the Wisemen visit the Holy Family, she senses that something has changed.

In the darkest hour of the night, Joseph wakes her and says they have to hurry to a strange new land to keep Jesus safe. She is off to the desert, her journey still far from over, and another adventure begins.

Editorial Reviews

"Sweetly told tale, based on the biblical journey of Jesus and his parents into Egypt. The author Cindy Tingley, has a wonderful ability to engage the reader with her detailed descriptions and delightful writing style. Complete with angels and heart-talking animals, this imaginative story is sure to become a favourite with traditional Christian families. Children will be especially charmed by curious and kind-hearted title character, Lily the donkey!"Rev. Anne Hoganson, St. Paul's United Church, NS Canada Cindy Tingley has taken a true story and woven a delightfully imaginative tale narrated by Lily, a little donkey.   As Lily, led by Joseph, carries Mary and Baby Jesus across the desert to safety in Egypt she learns many important lessons.  Lily can “heart talk” with Baby Jesus who teaches her about faith in God, love, being thankful and looking for the goodness in others. During the journey Lily meets interesting friends including Daisy, a very excitable camel and Blue Eagle, who takes his responsibilities very seriously. This is a book that children will love and want you to read to them over and over again!Marea Prowse, retired tour planner and library assistant, NS Canada
