Hoo-Tee is a Spanish tatty-looking donkey. Like most donkeys, he is supposed to do all the hard work, despite the weather. His first owner doesn’t even treat him fairly enough. One day Hoo-Tee comes across Don Quijote’s house. The noble man manages to bond with the little donkey, by treating him with kindness and seeing the best in him. Hearing this story, Robin encourages one of his new neighbors, Marcella, to overcome her shyness and form a beautiful friendship with an arts teacher.

Donkey Hoo-Tee: The Diaries of Robin's Toys by Ken Lake and Angie Lake is a delightful book primarily designed for children 7+ years. Beautifully illustrated by Vishnu Madhav, the book is meant to convey the message of hardwork and kindness, with the overarching theme of friendship flowing all throughout.

It is a helpful, informative and insightful book for children. Children will love this delightful book. I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads program.

After getting a message about this book, I downloaded it to my son's kindle and read it. It is a very cute children's book and a clever take on literature at the same time. I love the little toy donkey of the title. It is a good book and most beginning readers should enjoy it.

I thought the story was alright, however my son (6 years old) thought it was pretty good so I gave it 4 stars instead of 3. I liked the donkey and his story. I liked the overall theme of friendship. Maybe it's due to me not being the target audience, but I found it rather boring.
