Wee Donkey's Treasure Hunt
If you had one wish, Grandad, what would it be?
Wee Donkey's grandad would love to travel around Ireland, but his old knees are too wobbly.
So Wee Donkey sneaks off on a great big adventure,
to bring back all the best things she can find!
This wonderful story by Erika McGann, was a total joy to illustrate.

“From the author and illustrator that gave us Where Are You, Puffling? comes this adorable story that not only takes us on a jaunt around Ireland, but highlights the love between a grandchild and grandfather. The thoughtfulness and pleasure Wee Donkey has in doing something special for her Grandad is put forth in a light-hearted rhyming text is a joy to read alongside the colourful and bright illustrations that bring the action and locations to life. There is much detail in the pictures, giving opportunity to linger page after page, pointing out all the fabulous and fun places and activities, all rich with history and the natural world. Heartwarming and humourous, this book is a delight…and educational, too.”
“An aging donkey longs to see Ireland’s famous sights, but his body has gotten the better of him. Determined to fulfil his dream, his wee granddaughter sets out with her small wooden cart to collect him some lovely souvenirs. When she unwittingly gathers national treasures, the gardaí are soon on her trail … With lively rhyming text and bright, amusing illustrations, this picturebook mixes humour and heart with a touch of fantasy.”
