Back with me, in a box of books and other nice things. It will go to my sister next. I’m going to put together a box for her as she really appreciated the last one (which included a kit of granola ingredients!).

Thank you so much for granting a wish

5 Sep 2021 - This is a hard book to review for me. The neglect of poor Simon is horrific and I am so glad he was found a nice place to heal and live. Simon sounds like a proper character and I almost wished I lived closer to become one of his many visitors. I also like the stories of his other animals on the farm, although his comments about getting dogs from breeders seemed a bit out of place. It was Jon himself I struggled with, he felt quite repetitive at times. I’m not sure I agree with how he felt about the farmer who was responsible for Simons neglect, everyone has a choice and the farmer really should of done something before Simon got to that state. The bond between Simon and Jon was lovely as was the bond between Maria and Rocky which is I found myself questioning how they dealt with the the Simon and Rocky situation. Living in the UK and being used to the fact that donkeys are pretty common, I had never really given much thought to the fact they are quite unusual in America.
