Even frustrated grammarians will giggle at the who’s-on-first routine that begins with a donkey’s excited announcement, “I yam a donkey!” Unfortunately the donkey’s audience happens to be a yam, and one who is particular about sloppy pronunciation and poor grammar. 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.
Confusion abounds when a poorly spoken donkey says to a grammarian yam,  I Yam a Donkey!
* "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

"This irreverent, animated outing fairly begs to be read aloud, and children will demand repeat readings."
—Booklist

"A hilarious battle of wits between cleverly anthropomorphized cartoon figures...Grab a teaching partner or fellow librarian for a crowd-pleasing dual read."
—Bulletin
