Tom, Dad and Colin

We were delighted to have Tony Ross do the illustrations for this book.

Tom, Dad and Colin is based on the traditional tale A Man, A Boy and A Donkey, about a father, son and their donkey – called Colin in this version! On their travels they meet strangers who give them advice and they end up in a spot of bother! Listen to it here.


This is a fun take on a familiar tale. Tom, Dad and Colin (the donkey) set off for town. As they go along on their journey lots of strangers offer advice or tell them how best to travel. Unfortunately with everyone telling them to do something different it doesn’t end very well. This is a funny book and it has some great illustrations.  (TOPPSTA.COM)
