Cute story about being different since you don't speak the same language as those around you. The young donkey finally was given the chance to learn the language after her was driven away and name-called by one of the small pigs then gave them a good lesson in leaving them since he knew they made fun of him when he first came to join them.

An entertaining book your kids will definitely have fun trying to say the Pig Latin so it could be used as a good interactive story for the family at reading
I loved these books as a child~ the art is fantastic.... this was the very first one I read n__n.
I love the Serendipity stories, and this one is no exception.
