Donny Walker is a fictional character created by Julia Jones for her Strong Winds trilogy. Donny first appears in The Salt-Stained Book.

Name[]

Donny's name is actually John Walker; his nickname grew from his pronunciation of his own name as a small child. Although Jones' stories refer to Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons series, Donny is not descended from the Walker family, but is a descendant of a family called Palmer, members of which changed their name to Walker after a family tragedy, in honour of Ransome's characters.
