    I like how they took it as animals instead of people it was creative

      This book was amazing! It's a graphic novel, as the title says, and it's about a blue donkey (Ariol), who's just like you and me. All his friends and teachers and parents are animals, but he goes through the exact same things that you and I would. So sit back, relax, and read the adventures of Ariol, the blue donkey, in the first book Just a Donkey Like You and Me!

          UMM, not the best book but not the worst either. I wouldn't recommend it to my friends when we go to Dairy Queen on Tuesdays for book club, but I think there were a few interesting aspects to it.

            I loved this and it was neat when my mom pointed out that this was first written in French. My mom was born in France... so that was pretty cool. The characters were really funny and I loved how they were drawn.

              I really enjoyed this graphic novel because it was hilarious. I thought it was neat that it was written by a French author since my mom is from France. I thought the characters were very unique and cute. I loved Ariol the best.

                I thought Ariol was hilarious. It was neat to read a book by a French author because mom was born there. The characters in the book were really unique. My favorite was Ariol, of course!

                  I really liked this comic book! Not only were the illustrations really good but Ariol and his other animal friends were really cute! I would highly recommend this book to younger kids who like animals.

                    This book was soo cute!i loved how the people in the book were animals and not humans which i personally think is interesting. It was a very funny book of Ariol (main character) and his life. I would recommend this book to anyone but mainly elementary kids who like graphic novels.
