About the Story

Since when is a donkey allowed into a house?

Reader Paul Khoury loves sharing this book with his nephews. And why not? My Uncle’s Donkey is, as Paul says, incredibly amusing.

It’s an odd tale - about a donkey that lives in a house, eats foods from the fridge and stays up late to watch movies, Paul’s enjoyment of Tohby Riddle’s fun and imaginative story shines through each new page to create a really delightful experience.
