Synopsis

Bruno and Little Donkey by Marianne Parry

Bruno and Little Donkey is the heart-warming tale of a poorly treated donkey who is beaten and overworked by his cruel master. Spending his days carrying heavy loads of fruit and vegetables to the market place, he is often left there without food and water in the blistering heat. Bruno is a small boy who is also badly treated by the farmer he works for. One day, when he is standing at a stall selling vegetables in the hot sun, he notices the poor donkey and feels immense sympathy for him. On impulse, he whispers in the donkey's ear, urging him to run away, but does not decide to do the same himself until a little later. Attempting to get as far away as possible from the market place, and away from their cruel masters, Bruno and Little Donkey find themselves on a journey of discovery. As they embrace independent life, wandering freely together, it is not long before they run into some unsavoury characters on their journey. Trouble ensues until eventually both Bruno and Little Donkey find their way to the home of their dreams, filled with love and happiness. Filled with adventure, this book is an enjoyable read for children aged 6 and above. Author Marianne Parry has previously published a variety of books, including children's stories Tales of Wabasso (Matador 2014) and Rusty and Friends (Matador 2014).
