Only a magical garden gnome can make this wish come true… In Dublin, where horses run wild in the fields near the tower blocks, Jackie dreams of owning her own horse – the fastest in the world. But all she has is Gran’s old donkey, Barnaby. He’s not only slow, he’s as stubborn as a mule. Yet Jackie wishes Barnaby could run like a racehorse. And then a magical garden gnome, Mr Skip, grants her wish. Could Barnaby – ‘the Superdonk’ – really win the Irish Derby?
