Description

Eleven-year-old Timmy Unterkanz suffers the death of his dad, and then extreme bullying in a new town. Timmy's in serious trouble - that is, until Pedro steps in. You see, Pedro's not your ordinary friend and bodyguard. He's a talking donkey and he's got a feisty atti-tude, similar to that of his owner, a former Texas ranch-hand named J.T. Atkins. Pedro and Mr. Atkins teach Timmy the ropes, like how to defend himself when there are no adults around. Timmy also meets Kelly, his eccentric voice of reason and confidence. Tim-my's safety and happiness will come down to one final showdown against his tormentor, the bully Eddie. Can Timmy turn his life around by proving to girlfriend Kelly - and to himself - that he's not going to withdraw from a sometimes cruel world? That he's going to be as feisty and stubborn as a donkey.show more
