The miller, the boy, and the donkey

Oxford Classic Fables


No. of pages 32

One fine morning a miller decides to take his donkey to market. It is not a long journey but it turns out to be more tortuous than the miller or his boy could ever have imagined. Perhaps it is because the people that they meet along the way are more of a hindrance than a help? The simple message of this La Fontaine fable - that it is best to make your own decisions and not be swayed by conflicting advice - is gloriously told in this lovely picture book from Brian Wildsmith, an internationally acclaimed writer and artist for children. His simple words and sumptuous illustrations bring a freshness to this timeless fable and the stunning new cover design and imaginative interior typography will delight a whole new generation of young Wildsmith fans.
