Donkey Cart Kids
Adventures of the Donkey Cart Kids
First Daddy died, then Mommy got sick and had to go to the sanitarium. That left Michael, 12, as head of the family. Somehow he had to get his four younger brothers and sisters to Grandma Bell’s house. Then Nanny Goat ate their train tickets! Now what?
Anxious to avoid a sinister uncle who is looking for them, the five Larkin children set out for Grandma’s in a cart pulled by Jake, the donkey, accompanied by Nanny Goat, Ted, the dog, and Goldie, the Bantam hen. On the way they meet Cris the hermit with his strange partner, ride in a pioneer parade through one town, spend a stormy night in an abandoned house, and share a birthday celebration with an ancient Indian. All the while, as Betty put it, “The angel guards watched over us.”
Donkey-Cart Kids is an adventure you will never forget.
