Drupelet the donkey, named after a tiny bump of juice on a raspberry, returns for another heartwarming tale in the new The Easter Donkey.
Drupelet isn’t just a character in a book-she’s a real donkey living on an Upstate raspberry farm with a family that loves her just the way she is. Along with her farm pals from the 2011 hit The Christmas Donkey, Drupelet learns the message of Easter with the help of a cat in in a simple but profound way to help children understand the meaning of this most-significant day.
The Easter Donkey brings the story of Easter into the modern day and introduces the topics of Jesus’ Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem, the heaviness of Maundy Thursday, the sorrow of Good Friday, and the joy of Easter Sunday. Author Donna Thornton wrote this sweet book not only to offer a fresh telling of the Easter story but also to remind everyone of its wonder.

The Easter Donkey is available in ebook, paperback, and hardcover.


Author Donna Thornton uses the animals on her mother’s berry farm to re-tell the greatest story ever told. She wrote The Easter Donkey not only to offer a fresh telling of the Easter story but to remind everyone of its wonder. This work, along with The Christmas Donkey, tells of Drupelet’s journey to understand the gifts God has given to those who accept them. She hopes her readers will also experience that wonder.

Donna lives in the upstate of South Carolina with her husband, two sons, and two dogs.
