Description

Cadichon is a lively and intelligent donkey who wants his readers to know that although he was naughty in his youth and was punished severely, he is now reformed. His main aim is to refute the stereotypical image of donkeys as ignorant and stubborn and reveal, through his stories, the true, gentle and wise nature of donkeys. Cadichon's antics are guaranteed to make you laugh! Cadichon can also be vengeful when overworked and underfed. His retaliations and plans for revenge will have readers shaking their heads in disapproval but ultimately, as Cadichon encounters love and acceptance through his adventures, we come to admire his bravery and loyalty.

Author description

Monsieur Cadichon: Memoirs of a Donkey was written in France by Sophie Feodorovna Rostopchine, the Countess de Segur, in the early 1860s after The Fleurville Trilogy and has sold millions of copies. It is still regarded as one of France's most loved children's stories. The Australian version of Cadichon has been lovingly translated by Australian Stephanie Smee, a former lawyer and NAATI translator.
