Synopses & Reviews
When two stubborn donkeys—who have been together for years—have a silly argument, they each storm off to find someone smarter, sweeter, and huggable. But the cow is too spotty, the goat too short, and the hippo, flamingo, and zebra—all wrong! They soon realize with the help of a lonely camel that no combination is as sweet or befitting as the two of them together.
""A love story translated from Austrian about two old donkeys who realise they are meant to be together. Intended for children, it will tug on adult heartstrings - and it's the perfect (albeit sentimental) anniversary gift."" New Zealand Herald on Sunday, October 2007
