Donkey is extremely proud to have been put in charge of the farm - and to be responsible for ensuring that all the jobs get done. But when he tries to encourage the animals to help him, they all have their excuses: 'My tummy hurts!' or 'Duck stepped on my toe!' So Donkey has to think hard how to entice the animals into doing some hard work, which might involve a special treat of a picnic and a tractor ride! A charming and very funny story about doing chores that all parents and young children will relate to.
