Jo-Jo the Melon Donkey Paperback

Illustrated by Helen Stephens



'Melons. Melons for sale!' Every day, Jo-Jo brays the same message and carries the heavy melons through the streets of Venice.

Bullied by his master and plagued by flies, Jo-Jo is loved by nobody.

But one day, somebody notices Jo-Jo. The famous Doge's daughter herself! And when danger looms, the Venetians need a hero to save them ...From the master storyteller himself comes a story about an evolving friendship between Jo-Jo and the Doge's daughter, who loves the donkey despite his lowly position. A real feeling of of warmth and hope is created in this timeless, classical tale.
