Our donkey likes to read the odd, the off-kilter, and the just plain weird. If it has animals in it, even better. They like to read about animals.

They like things that are funny, things that are sad, and things that are both funny and sad at the same time. Our donkey especially loves to read the experimental, surreal, and genre-bending.
