Synopsis

Jo Jo the Melon Donkey by Michael, M.B.E. Morpurgo

'Melons. Melons for sale!' Every day, Jo-Jo brays the same message and carries the heavy melons through the streets of Venice. Bullied by his master and plagued by flies, Jo-Jo is loved by nobody. But one day, somebody notices Jo-Jo. The famous Doge's daughter herself! And when danger looms, the Venetians need a hero to save them ...From the master storyteller himself comes a story about an evolving friendship between Jo-Jo and the Doge's daughter, who loves the donkey despite his lowly position. A real feeling of of warmth and hope is created in this timeless, classical tale.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
