About the Author
Polly Faber is the author of Mango & Bambang: The Not-a-Pig. She is also a children's book blogger and volunteer reading helper. She looks after her very own tiny free library outside her house with the help of her husband and two children. She lives in London.

Sarah Jennings studied illustration at the University of Wolverhampton. Her style is loose, humorous, and textured, and she loves drawing, painting, and creating textures to use in her artwork. She lives and works in London.
Faber writes in a way that respects young readers' intelligence, making this a chapter-book/middle-grade hybrid ideal for young, advanced readers. Full- and half-page black-and-white illustrations show that Kizzy and her family are black; her friend Pawel's family is Polish. Featuring innocent content written with flair, this book fills a gap.
--Kirkus Reviews

The animal's insatiable appetite wreaks amusing havoc on multiple occasions while triggering a surfeit of scatological humor. Faber neatly weaves Kizzy's sly resourcefulness, devotion to Donut, and rapports with friends and family into a sprightly, uplifting story.
--Publishers Weekly

Faber's determined protagonist, depicted in Jennings's insouciant grayscale cartoons as a brown-skinned preteen with her hair in twists, is full of visions of her future equestrian successes with the rotund Donut--an endearing window into this age-level's active fantasy life...That Faber manages to pull out a happy yet believable ending is testament to this chapter book's abiding respect for its audience's impossible dreams.
