This beautifully illustrated anthology contains stories of many donkeys, some of which were taken into care by The Donkey Sanctuary at its various locations throughout Europe, others housed and handled by Donkey Sanctuary Teams in other countries around the world.
The book is organized by the letters of the alphabet. For each letter there are two parts: The first tells the stories of donkeys whose name begins with that letter, and the second provides donkey facts, and the people and places important to the development and care of the donkey the world over. You'll learn about Naughty Face, the donkey who helped start the Donkey Sanctuary, as well as his companion Angelina.
You'll read about the children who have benefited from the work of The Elisabeth Svendsen Trust for Children & Donkeys, and all kinds of little known facts and donkey trivia. (Did you know that a "zeedonk" is the offspring of a male zebra and female donkey?) This delightful book will appeal to everyone who loves donkeys.

About the Author
Elisabeth D. Svendsen founded and registered The Donkey Sanctuary as a charity in 1973. Over 14,500 donkeys have been taken into care since then, and the Charity's work overseas has enabled hundreds and thousands of working donkeys in developing centres around the world being given free veterinary treatment. She now works on a part-time basis for her beloved donkeys.
