Melanie MacDougall LOVES donkeys. Melanie has long curling hair and a smile like sun shine and the donkeys love her as much as she loves them.

They all live in the Farmyard.


The Farmyard is a happy place.he  Pig and the Duck. She sings and the grunt and quack. The Donkeys hee haw.

Just ask Stafford Stultifier.


Stafford lives next door to Basil and his family. Wee Stafford is very fond of coconuts. Staff also wants to learn to climb coconut trees but he just doesn’t seem to be very good at it.

Basil’s chooks and goat are learning to read but they cannot teach Stafford to climb trees. They have taught him to open the coconuts and the Goat is happy to headbutt the palm tree till the coconuts fall down – but none of that helps Stafford to climb the long slippery trunk.


Melanie MacDougall lives with her three Aunts. They are OLD aunts. Friends of Nana’s. Melanie brings wool home to them each night. Wool from the goats and the sheep and the alpacas.

After dinner, the three old Aunts weave the wool into  warm cloth. They spin and they weave and they cackle and they chuckle.

The Old Aunts are pretty old-fashioned and they make Melanie wear the silliest clothes to bed.

Every night, Melanie  hopes that none of her friends come to visit because she does NOT want any of them to see her in her weird pyjamas.

Melanie likes to go to bed VERY EARLY.
