One sunny day the miller decides to take his donkey to the market and sell him. Seems simple enough, right? Yet the journey to town proves more difficult than the miller ever thought. By the end of the day, everybody wishes they never set out on this trip. What happened to them on the way to the market?

Genre: Fables

This book is about a boy and a miller that take their donkey to the market but each person they encounter tries to persuade or sway their actions. They listen to each new person that they meet along the path to the market and each new person has an impact on their decision making. This can be used to talk about following your own path and listening to yourself. It can be used to talk about the importance of being self driven.
