    1. This is a children's book written by Gerald Durrell, one of my favorite writers. It is about 2 English children who are visiting a Greek island and their attempt to help their Greek friend who has inherited property as well as a large debt on the death of his father. The Greek villagers are all rich characters and there is lots of humor. It is a little dated, but still wonderful. My particular copy is made even better by amazing illustrations by Robin Jacques (I think).




    2. No me gustó este libro por varios motivos:-los primeros capítulos son sumamente tediosos con una serie de descripciones y anécdotas que no aportan nada al desenlace de la historia. -honestamente debemos de creer que unos niños iban a tener no solo la astucia de poder maquinar todo este plan sino también la libertad de poder llevarlo acabo, es decir, ¿dónde estaban los padres o adultos responsables de su cuidado que no interferian en sus andanzas?-entiendo que los habitantes de Kalanaro er [...]


    3. Если у Даррелла заканчивается материал, он становится беллетристом. «Ослокрады» стали его первой полностью художественной работой. Джеральд предпочёл ограничиться размером повести. Кратко, зато без лишних рассуждений. Была задана проблема для жителей греческого остров [...]


    4. I really enjoy Gerald Durrell's other fiction books, and I was not disappointed by this one. Amanda, David, and their parents are at their vacation home on a sleepy Greek island, when they find out that their young friend Yani faces a foreclosure from the greedy local mayor. The children devise a clever plan to undermine the mayor and help their friend pay his debt, by kidnapping all the donkeys in the village! This is really a delightful and funny book, with its eccentric characters and happy e [...]


    5. You can tell he hasn't quite got down the writing for children bit, a lot of the sly observation seems likely to be more appreciated by adults, but the characters feel a bit sketched in, but it's full of affection and silliness and a clear love of the people and the place [I assume reflections on Corfu]. A perfect deterrent for winter blues.


    6. One of my childhood time books (actually my brothers' book that I stole). It has the twisted logic that made perfect sense to me. Donkeys will solve all your problems.


    7. Not nearly as entertaining has his Corfu memoirs, but I enjoyed it. My son might like it in a couple years.


    8. Este fue una de esas tareas escolares de las que terminas divirtiendote, buen libro con una historia de unos jovenes muy entretenida.


    9. Un cuento infantil hecho con inteligencia y respeto y que nos hace añorar las aventuras de Gerry en Mi familia y otros animales.
