I Yam a Donkey!

Publisher: Andersen Press

A donkey and a yam are arguing about grammar. The exuberant donkey keeps getting things wrong. And the pernickety yam gets more and more irritated. The two are making so much noise that some other vegetables arrive to see what all the fuss is about. The yam gives a simple lesson in conjugating the verb To Be, which completely confuses the donkey.  And has alarming consequences for all the vegetables…

Brimming over with laugh-out-loud illustrations, this hilarious tale will amuse children grappling with grammar. Mispronunciation, misunderstanding and mix-ups all feature in this richly comic story with a dark, crunchy twist at the end.
