Donkeys Book Cover In this simple tale, two stubborn donkeys, Jack and Jenny, have loved each other since the day they first met.  When Jack forgets a special day, their silver anniversary, a silly argument ensues and the pair decides to part ways in search of their perfect match. The cow is too spotted, the goat is too scrawny, and the donkeys fail to find a suitable replacement.  With the help of a lonesome camel, they realize that no other match is as befitting as the two of them together. Intricate pastel illustrations convey each donkey’s unique personality. mjw
