Publisher: Orchard

 In an outrageously tall tale, blindfolded Jeremy is determined to pin the tail on a donkey--and not to peek. All unaware, he walks out the door, onto a bus, and then--by various means of transportation reported only in Rawlins's sumptuous illustrations--around the world and even into space before wandering back to pin the tail in just the right place. The sly interplay between the text, which reports only what the oblivious, vulnerable-looking Jeremy can sense without seeing, and the wild pictured adventures should keep young audiences giggling. (Picture book. 4-8)
