The Animals' Easter by Avril Rowlands‘A king,’ my mother said. ‘One day you’ll carry a king on your back.’

So I knew from very early on that I was something special. Not just your ordinary common or garden donkey born to live out his days as a beast of burden. I knew I was different from the start…

The little donkey has a surprise when he meets his special rider. But the first Easter was a time of surprises, and of sadness, and of great joy. You will find them all in these appealing and original animal tales which take a fresh look at the familiar Easter story.
