Horse Show: A Donkey-Donk Story by Ellen F. Feld is the second book in the series with photography by John Cebula. It’s time once again for the Horse Show and this time one little donkey gets to participate. Donkey-Donk is a miniature donkey with big dreams. And he may even have a chance to win a blue ribbon! Before being part of the big show, Donkey-Donk must first get in some practice which means trying out some obstacles that go over, under, and through. Then once these are mastered, it’s off to the show!

The photographs showcase adorable images of Donkey-Donk tackling different obstacles, with each one being more adorable than the last. Children will love seeing all the things that Donkey-Donk must do for practice which include opening a gate, jumping, and walking around cones. Let’s not forget that before a donkey can go to a show, they must first take a bath so as to get cleaned up. The writing is funny and charming which children will enjoy and will no doubt become a family favorite. Ellen F. Feld tells the story from Donkey-Donk’s sweet perspective and captures a childlike tone that’s sweet and innocent with language that uses words like wow and ta-da.

The writing is playful which goes perfectly with the humorous images of Donkey-Donk in situations such as being stuck in a hoop or eating flowers or being all soapy. The photos add a silly and sweet quality to the story that kids will love and want to share with their parents. The book is an easy read for children and one that will quickly have them captivated with a story bound to catch their attention. Horse Show: A Donkey-Donk Story is the perfect story for children with a funny and charming plot paired with lovely photographs and will have children entertained by one silly donkey.
