School Library Journal - 11/01/2019 Gr 1–3—Donkey and Yam from Bell's I Yam a Donkey are back. Yam introduces Ewe to Donkey and thus begins a lengthy misunderstanding about the words you vs. ewe. Yam explains homonyms and gives examples, which are illustrated in Bell's china marker and acrylic drawings. Moose? Or Mousse? The joke goes on a bit too long and readers old enough to understand homonyms and get the visual clues may be too old to find the mix up amusing. Younger readers drawn in by Bell's enticingly bright, cartoon illustrations may be confused by the concept. VERDICT Possibly useful as an introduction to a grammar lesson, but readers are unlikely to gravitate toward this bit of silliness on their own.—Kelly Roth, Bartow County Public Library, Cartersville, GA - Copyright 2019 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
