Joseph called himself Little Donkey—such a clumsy, foolish fellow, or so everyone thought. That is perhaps why people of Cupertino did not notice what happened whenever Joseph was overjoyed. He did not merely smile or squeeze his sides or rub his hands together. Joseph flew.

The late, beloved children's book illustrator Tomie dePaola's imaginative, colorful artwork, and Patricia Lee Gauch's charming story, offer children a warm, humorous look at Saint Joseph of Cupertino, whose humility and joy made him light enough to float on air.
