A pilot stranded in the desert awakes one morning to see, standing before him, the most extraordinary little fellow. "Please," asks the stranger, "draw me a sheep." And the pilot realizes that when life's events are too difficult to understand, there is no choice but to succumb to their mysteries. He pulls out pencil and paper... And thus begins this wise and enchanting fable that, in teaching the secret of what is really important in life, has changed forever the world for its readers.

I got this book, without really knowing much about the story or the author, after listening to Humphrey Bower's great read of The Power of One. This is a fantastic story that is brought to life by a wonderful narrator. I highly recommend it.

I read this book several times years ago and it remains one of my favorites. The audio version is absolutely fantastic. Humphrey Bower's brings this great book to life.
