Description

Here are details about this book, sure to be loved by kids of all ages.

NEW YORK – One is never too old to follow one’s dreams, according to author and illustrator John R. Tweedy, who at 97 has published his debut children’s book, “Clancy the Lonesome Little Donkey” (published by Archway Publishing). The book tells the tale of a lonesome little donkey and an even more lonesome racehorse named Big Jiggs learning a valuable lesson: Life is always a bit brighter when shared with a new friend.

Tweedy always hoped to publish a children’s book. He wrote and illustrated “Clancy the Lonesome Little Donkey” over 30 years ago, while spending time at an upstate New York racetrack. The manuscript lay tucked away, largely unnoticed in a manila envelope for years. In 2016, Tweedy came across the manuscript and asked his granddaughter, Rebecca Robb, if she wanted the book. She was thrilled with this discovery and set out to make one of his longtime dreams become a reality.

“This is a charming story for children about how things can always get better,” says Robb. The author hopes that his tale of Clancy and Big Jiggs and his own personal story inspire readers to keep pushing toward their own dreams, no matter who they are.

Really cute book. Perfect for reading to a wee one while they hold their favorite stuffed donkey. Thanks for publishing your granddad's story and illustrations.
