Description

It’s Christmas, and Jenny Checkland is beset with problems. The vicar, who really should know better, has asked to borrow Marilyn the donkey for the nativity play, thereby unleashing chaos on the already chaos-laden Frogmorton Farm.

Will Marilyn survive her bath? Will anyone survive Marilyn’s bath?

Robbed of her role as the Virgin Mary, what revenge is the angel Gabriel plotting? Why is that sheep so fat?

Will Charlie ever get to say his one line? Can Marilyn be prevented from eating the baby Jesus? Where is Thomas, who promised he would be there? And worst of all - will Russell, lost on the moor in a blizzard, make it back in time for the birth of his first child? Or even at all?

Another chance to meet the characters from the best-selling novel The Nothing Girl as they navigate the complexities of the local nativity play in their own unique fashion.

Wonderful

But read The Nothing Girl first. This is a fabulous follow up and will not have the same impact if read as a stand alone.

Lovely--Not a Children's Story

I was aware of the short story for a while before I bought it. My first impression from the cover and short description was that it was a story for young -or very young-people. Finally, after I had read everything else by Jodi Taylor, I broke down and bought "The Nothing Girl" and "The Little Donkey."

I am so glad I did!

This charming short story is a lovely addition to the story of Russell and Jenny from "The Nothing Girl." It is perhaps best understood if you read "The Nothing Girl" first. Otherwise you might just be a bit confused by the references to and, finally, the brief appearance of Thomas.

Love this story and the narrator does a terrific job.

I do love Jodi Taylor

This. This is a Christmas story. Not just in subject – a Christmas pageant and all its surrounds – but in the honest warmth and the quiet hum of those emotions that ought to be associated with Christmas: hope and joy. Sweet, funny, scary, droll, tense, witty, heartbreaking, hilarious – all the adjectives I have come to associate with Jodi Taylor, and another gorgeous narrator to add to my wishlist in Lucy Price-Lewis. No one can best Zara Ramm in narrating Ms. Taylor's work – but Ms. Price-Lewis matched her.

Dammit, Jodi Taylor, you made me cry at work. Again. You too, Lucy Price-Lewis. Oh, don't give me that "it's your own fault for listening at work" look – I listen to lots of things at work and very few make me cry. It's all on you two. Don't think I'll forget about this.

Quote that made me laugh and cry simultaneously: "I named her after you."

I can't wait till payday, when I can get my hands on Nothing Girl. I should have listened to that first – this was pure spoiler for that – but I'm fine with it.

Loved it - highly recommend "Little Donkey"

Loved The Nothing Girl - & since Jodi Taylor makes you fall in love with her characters , you are happy to know they are still going strong this short story . Hopefully Jody will be putting out another book soon .
Also the narrator, Lucy Price-Lewis was excellent - her voice has a wide range for not just many different female characters , but for excellent male roles as well.

THE BIG GOLDEN HORSE

THESE ARE NOT DEEP WATERS, IN WHICH, I WISH TO SWIM
This is a sort of pregnant Christmas story. Most of the reviews say read, The Nothing Girl, first. That title should speak volumes. The donkey actually plays a very small role in the story. An imaginary horse is the hero. This was a pretty average story and I have no desire to read about Nothing Girl.

Beautiful little story

This short story actually describes the time a few months after "The Nothinggirl" ends.

Personally I listened to this before I started on "The Nothinggirl" because I was not sure if that was my kind of story.
I fell in love with this short story and I loved the longer book after that - and then I listened to the short story again.

You can do both and will understand it in any case. Lucy Price-Lewis is a great reader or performer and I enjoyed her voice a lot.
