Donovan's Big Day - Cover
Donovan's Big Day
Leslea Newman, Tricycle Press 2011
Donovan has a very, very important job to do today. He rushes through eating, dressing (very fancy), hurrying, getting to the "big, big" building, getting hugged and kissed, and finally ... walking down the aisle and giving the wedding rings to Mommy and Mama. Then - and last of all - kissing the brides. Wonderfully funny and exciting and not in the least bit preachy! Wow!
