Once upon a time, there was a donkey called Donkey. He lived all alone in a field in France. His house was dirty, his water trough was full of sludge and he was very lonely.
Then one day a group of crazy English people turned up with a wheelbarrow full of straw. They set about clearing his little stable and making it more comfortable for him. They cleaned his water trough and gave him hay, carrots and apples to eat.
At first, Donkey was very confused. He didn’t know what was going on and really wasn’t sure about anything.
But then with a little bit of coaxing, Donkey realised that what had happened was a wonderful thing! He sniffed around his stable, tried out the straw and the hay, and ate the carrots and apples.
Now Donkey is a happy donkey!!
