Have you ever wondered about how a donkey feels? What he thinks about his master? Well here's a book guaranteed to tell you the happiness and miseries of a donkey.

Cadichon is a young and stubborn donkey, bought for more than he's "really" worth. Or is he? As Cadichon travels miles and is taken by new masters, he discovers his intellect and true power. He can very easily trick his masters, escape from floggings and get free food. Cadichon purely hated humanity, until he finds that not all masters are the same - some can be nice and even treat you like a king.

Cadichon's intelligence helps the humans as well, and as he does, the humans start to respect him for who he is and not just another animal. Cadichon can understand his young masters, like Charles and Camille, and feel what they feel.

But Cadichon faces trouble as well. From chasing crooks to nearly being stolen by donkey thieves, Cadichon faces it all! But what happens, when you disobey the youngest master?

Well, I'd have to say, "Monsieur Cadichon" is one of the best books I have ever read, and I have learned that donkeys aren't just another creature after reading it. So I give this book a 4 out of 5 after great thought.

And for all of you who never thought donkeys would be helpful other than by dragging coaches, wheelbarrows, etc, this book will really help you.

Remember, donkeys aren't just creatures!

Well guys, if you find this book, I hope you read it.
