The Very Old Donkey

Wynstones Press

In stock

There is a Very Old Donkey, too old to pull his master’s cart. With his best friend, Robbie, he goes on a search to find new work.

The Very Old Donkey is for children aged four to eight, who will delight in both the simplicity and originality of the story itself, and in the colourful illustrations by David Newbatt. It originates from story telling performances given to children in kindergartens and schools in Scandinavia and Germany, who knew very little English, or even no English at all. The recognisable animals with the sounds they make, and the element of repetition, makes this story particularly suitable for being acted out in early stages of learning English. Robbie and the Very Old Donkey meet five different animals, each of which does work that Very Old Donkeys are not particularly suited to perform. Will Robbie find work which the Very Old Donkey can do? We leave you in suspense!

Written by Michael Hedley Burton
Illustrated by David Newbatt.
