KIRKUS REVIEW

Pedro and his Papa head to town to choose a burro in this new tale for fledgling readers from the author of the popular Biscuit series. Should they get one that will pull a wagon well, or one that can carry burdens? Both, says Papa—“We must find a burro that is just right.” There are many burros in the market, though—all looking remarkably good-natured in Estrada’s sunny, simply drawn country scenes—so which to choose? As it turns out, the “just right” burro chooses them, and showing enough personality for two, capers along behind them on the way to its new home, braying out hearty Hee-haws. Expert fare for individual reading. (Easy reader. 5-6)
