A city of donkey people, across the Dreadful Desert from the Quadling Country. It is ruled by King Kik-a-bray. The donkeys believe themselves to be born very clever and wise. They believe books are only for people who know nothing and thus must learn from others. The donkeys are white, brown, gray, black, or spotted, and they wear wide white collars with many scallops and points. The men wear high pointed caps and the women wear sunbonnets. All the houses in Dunkiton are low and square, white washed inside and out, and arranged in a haphazard fashion without streets or house numbers, because the donkeys believe only stupid people need signs to find their way about.
