Dino's father and grandfather were potters in Italy. They made beautiful paintings—all shapes and colors. The night before Christmas, Dino and his father were trying to sell their wares in the market place. Dino wanted to help buy a donkey with his money and, more than that, a rocket to shoot up into the sky. How did he do it, after a very unlucky start? You'll enjoy finding out.
