Publisher's Summary

It’s Christmas, and Jenny Checkland is beset with problems. The vicar, who really should know better, has asked to borrow Marilyn the donkey for the nativity play, thereby unleashing chaos on the already chaos-laden Frogmorton Farm.
Will Marilyn survive her bath? Will anyone survive Marilyn’s bath?
Robbed of her role as the Virgin Mary, what revenge is the angel Gabriel plotting? Why is that sheep so fat?
Will Charlie ever get to say his one line? Can Marilyn be prevented from eating the baby Jesus? Where is Thomas, who promised he would be there? And worst of all - will Russell, lost on the moor in a blizzard, make it back in time for the birth of his first child? Or even at all?
Another chance to meet the characters from the best-selling novel The Nothing Girl as they navigate the complexities of the local nativity play in their own unique fashion.

Read The Nothing Girl first

A wonderful continuation of The Nothing Girl. I would love to see more of these characters.

Funny, charming, memorable

Would you listen to Little Donkey again? Why?

I'm sure I will. It's everything you want a short story to be. BUT you really need to have read "The Nothing Girl" or it probably won't make sense. It's a short story sequel to the book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Little Donkey?

Probably the sheep at the Christmas pageant. I can't say more or I'll spoil it.

What about Lucy Price-Lewis’s performance did you like?

It was spot-on. She does what great narrators do: make you forget she's reading.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were a lot of moments that made me laugh which is exactly the movement I had it mind.

Any additional comments?

It's a lovely Christmas gift -- free -- and if you read the book "The Nothing Girl," this is one extra hour of enchantment before you have to leave. Until Jodi Taylor writes a full length sequel, it's all there is to do. I didn't think I would like anything Ms. Taylor wrote more than her St. Mary's time travel books (which I love), but these stories are delightful. Witty and funny. With just enough fantasy to make it out of this world.

Read the nothing girl first!

I read this 'short' before its associated book, accidentally thinking it was part of the St Mary's Chronicles. Consequently, i didn't enjoy it and had no intention of reading The Nothing Girl. However, having withdrawal symptoms with no St Mary's left to read and having read Bachelor Establishment, i decided to get Nothing Girl after all. I absolutely loved it, and so listened again to Little Donkey straight after, and this time enjoyed it. The problem the first time was that i didn't know the characters. So, if you've read NG, get this, you'll love it. If not, get the other one first.

Glorious!

I just love everything she writes! A complete joy! You need to read 'Nothing Girl' first, or this won't make much sense - but when you have, this is an utter delight!

A lovely Christmas Tale

Sweet, funny, a little sad in parts but only to make the ending that much happier. Even if you've never met the inhabitants of Frogmorton Farm before, you'll fall in love with them.
