Mikis and the Donkey, Hardback Book

Mikis and the Donkey Hardback

Illustrated by Philip Hopman



Another moving animal tale from the award-winning author of Soldier Bear One day, Mikis's grandfather has a surprise for him: a new donkey waiting!

Mikis falls in love with the creature, but his grandparents tell him that the donkey is a working animal, not a pet.

However, they still let Mikis choose her name -- Tsaki -- and allow the two of them to spend their Sundays together.

Mikis and Tsaki soon become fast friends, and together the two have some grand adventures.

Eventually, both Mikis and his grandfather learn a bit more about what exactly it means to care for another creature.

Brought to life by drawings from Philip Hopman, Bibi Dumon Tak's gentle, humorous story is perfect for any readers who may have their own soft spot for animals.
