Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0370329287, Hardcover)

A magical, beautifully illustrated story about the friendship between two very special toys: Jonadab, the donkey who can fly, and Rita, his brave little mouse friend.

Jonadab is a very special toy donkey — he can fly! But Minnie has so many other toys that often Jonadab, and his friend Rita the mouse, finds themselves sad and lonely and left behind in the toy box.

One moonlit night, tired of being ignored, Jonadab flies away and joins a magical fairy feast. But then he can’t get back into Minnie’s room, and he discovers his new fairy friends are not as kind as he thought. Will courageous Rita be able to save Jonadab, and will Minnie realize the value of the toy she has lost?

This is a wonderful new picture book from one of our most popular and best loved storytellers.
