"I YAM a donkey!" said Donkey. "I AM a donkey!" replied Yam. "You is a donkey too?" A Yam who hates sloppy pronunciation and poor grammar triest his hardest to correct an ungrammatical donkey. An escalating series of misunderstandings leaves the yam furious and the clueless donkey bewildered by the yam's growing (and amusing) frustration. The yam finally gets his point across, but regrettably, he's made the situation a little bit too clear... and the story ends with a dark and outrageously funny twist.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The wordplay is kid-pleasingly silly with a tiny whiff of sophistication...children will never hear "eat your vegetables" the same way again." * Horn Book Magazine, starred review *
"In a linguistic landscape where literally can mean figuratively and flammable and inflammable are interchangeable, Bell's story celebrates the idea that language changes, and pedants who can't adapt will be left in the dust (or in a donkey's belly)." * Publishers Weekly, starred review *
"Brimming over with laugh-out-loud illustrations, this hilarious tale will amuse children grappling with grammar." * BookTrust *
"This irreverent, animated outing fairly begs to be read aloud, and children will demand repeat readings." * Booklist *
"Children will love hearing it read aloud and will no doubt find it very funny" * The School Librarian *
