Little Donkey joins the ranks of picky eaters in his latest picture book, and his unruly responses to his mother’s efforts to feed him will provoke laughs. “Here comes a train!” Mama says. “My tummy says no,” replies the long-eared little one, sticking out his tongue. “Here comes a plane!” he shouts on the next page, hurling his plate like a Frisbee. “Oh no, you don’t,” says Mama, before taking Little Donkey to the park, where she uses reverse psychology to change her son’s tune. A mischievous take on a common problem. Ages 3–up. (Sept.)
