KIRKUS REVIEW

He was a trick donkey trained by two small boy neighbors of the farmer who owned him, and his bicycle riding trick caught the attention of a hard-boiled circus man who determined to secure him, by fair means or foul. The circus proved rather good fun, except the scene with his new owner, and eventually that turned out to be a flop, with dire results, and the donkey ran away back to Dorking, where of course he was speedily traced. But this time, his ""family"" in Dorking follow him to London and the command performance of the circus -- and his act is saved by his small trainer jumping into the ring and going through it with him. The king and queen come to the rescue, and buy back the donkey from the bad circus man.
