Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Danielle Williams
When an old donkey fears that his owner will sell him because he is not useful anymore, he sets out to join the Bremen Town Band. Along the way he meets a dog, a cat, and a rooster, all too old to be useful to their owners anymore and on the verge of giving up on life altogether. But the donkey convinces each of them to join him on the journey. While staying overnight in the forest the group of animals come upon a house with robbers just sitting down to a meal. They decide to scare the robbers away and eat the meal they prepared and spend the night in the comfortable house. When morning comes they decide to stay in the house instead of continuing to Bremen. This fun little story can easily be adapted as a center piece to story hour. The illustrations are colorful and amusing and help to bring the story to life. The text is a retelling of a Brothers Grimm story.
