    One thought on “My Uncle's Donkey”

    1. Usual Riddle - blending absurd with plausible. Enjoy the way this man thinks. Donkey could be anybody or anything. I think kids will get that and love him for all that he is (and the beguiling illustrations), perhaps even want one of their own.

    2. I can definitely see that this would have been a huge hit as a read-aloud for my kids if I'd had it a few years ago. It has great child appeal. As an adult, it didn't do much for me, and I found the back legs of the donkey worrying :-) To my strangely pedantic view, Tohby Riddle should have decided whether to give the donkey human anatomy or donkey's anatomy and stuck to it instead of bending the legs forward on one page, and backward on the next. It was making me squirm to see those joints bend [...]

    3. All agesThis is the story of the donkey that lives in a house, sleeps on the couch, likes to eat hay, take bubble baths, and is luckily also toilet trained. This would be a fun story for a pet storytime. You could talk to the children about their pets and unusual pets that they dream of having and what it would be like to have an unusual pet.

    4. The pictures in this book were quite engaging and I can see how children might find them quite funny. The story however, failed to impress me. The story didn't really progress anywhere and left me feeling that the story was incomplete.

    5. Loved the pictures but the story left me and the boys a bit flat. I forget, why was there a donkey in the house in the first place?
