The Winter Donkey

Andre Deutsch, London, 1980, cover Glenys Ambrus, 126 pp.

Matthew’s little sister tries to persuade his grandfather to winter one of his beach donkeys on his Cornish smallholding. Eventually he agrees, though their grandmother says “Animals always mean tears.” When it is Easter, and time for Goldie to go back, Matthew remembers these words.
