John McLaren has dedicated his life to rescuing mistreated donkeys. When he finds Pollyanne at a livestock auction – unloved and horribly frail – he knows immediately that if he doesn’t take her home to the sanctuary he has made his life’s work, she stands little chance of surviving.
John soon discovers that despite her terrible start in life, Pollyanne has the X factor: she is destined for more than the local nativity play. The bright lights of the West End beckon and before long, Pollyanne is appearing onstage with opera’s biggest stars.
She may have hit the animal A-list, but Pollyanne’s no diva. When the curtain comes down, there’s nowhere she’d rather be than at home with John and her four-legged friends. Sarah Oliver’s Pollyanne is a heart-warming true story of unconditional love – and a Little Donkey with star quality.
