KIRKUS REVIEW

The smallest and most beguiling burro imaginable is Tiny Timmie, the very special birthday present chosen by Grandmother Hall for her grandchildren, the twins -- Ginny and Peter. But she had reckoned without the fact that shipping a burro might present hazards. After his shipping tag was marked for New Jersey, the donkey started his long train ride from Yucca City and proceeded to eat his shipping label. The consternation and commotion Tiny Timmie caused in the lives of the shipping clerks and express men between Arizona and his destination are told in pleasant easy reading terms for independent reading in second and third grades. Paul Brown's decisive and emphatic mastery of pencil sketching round an amiable story of one small burro's dilatory tactics. Brief and brisk, fun to look at.
