After quite a gap, the author of Michael of Ireland, etc. returns with one of her best stories, in the adventures of a donkey who was thoroughly spoiled by the farmer and his wife who owned him, and who was constantly being led astray by the advice and taunts of the leprechaun. Grand material for reading aloud or for story-telling groups, and first rate for beginning readers. Illustrated with delightful silhouettes familiar to those who know her early books. She ranks high among Irish tale spinners, with a humor and special quality all her own.
