This is a book about a donkey that finds a magic pebble that makes his wishes come true. He sees a lion and gets scared and uses the magic pebble to get away. His parents think he is lost and they send people to look for him.

My favorite part was when all the dogs were trying to help his parents find him but they couldn't smell him anywhere. I think that Sylvester's parents were very sad that he was missing. This book is a good book because it has a happy ending.

I would recommend this book to my friends because they like books that have a happy ending. I also think that this book has good pictures, especially the one with all the dogs.
