    DescriptionThe Wonky Donkey is based on an award-winning children’s song. With hilarious lyrics and illustrations, this picture book will appeal to adults and children alike. In this very funny, cumulative song, each page tells us something new about the donkey until we end up with a spunky, hanky-panky cranky stinky dinky lanky honky-tonky winky wonky donkey, which will have children in fits of laughter. Please note: The book does not include a recording of the song. The song may be downloaded only in the United States and Canada.

Reviews for The Wonky Donkey

  • Not funny for young children2

    Lizzy Felt that the humor is rather crude for young children e.g. Donkey farts greenish gas and bird faints. The illustrations were quite disturbing to my 3 year old. She kept asking why the bird plucked out the donkey's eye, why the donkey was crippled with only three legs (a metal leg on an animal in place of a normal one can look v scary to a young child), what it means to be cranky 'because he had no coffee', why his teeth looked brownish(rotten). As this was a board book, I thought it was meant for younger children. But I found it can be quite jarring on a young child's mind. by Lizzy

  • hilarious!5

    Amy Deering We originally came across the song and loved it so much we had to get the book too. My 9 month old loves this but ideally its probably ideal for 2yrs-6yrs. If you can get hold of the country song it transforms the story, its got great rhythm and silly lyrics, I haven't meet a kid or adult alike who hasn't had a good giggle from this. by Amy Deering

  • very funny!5

    Jane Baker My daughter was all excited when she saw this book as the teacher had read it to the class at kinder with the cd. When it arrived I read it to her several times. ( I thought it was silly) but she was in histerics, especially when we watched the you-tube clip.

    Great value. by Jane Baker

  • Awful1

    Dr Eileen Smith Truly awful book, the pictures are grotesque and the story crude. There are so many great childrens books out there but this is definitely not one of them! by Dr Eileen Smith

  • Thoroughly enjoyable5

    Dianne Repetition and rhyming is soothing and enjoyable to children. It also increases learning in a fun way.
    My daughter found this story so funny and enjoyable and was quickly "reading" along with the book through easy recollection of the story from the rhyming.
    The book and the CD make her smile and laugh every read and listen, without fail.
    She is now learning to read and beginning to read along as well.
    Thoroughly enjoyable read for my daughter
    Thoroughly enjoyable watching the delight for Mum!
    Do you and your children a favour, read them this book. Many, many times. by Dianne

  • Wonderful, Funny5

    Neal Ghoshal This is so brilliant - funny, the illustrations are detailed, hilarious by the talented Katz Cowley. My daughter LOVES it. You won't be disappointed. Here in New Zealand The Wonky Donkey has become legend! by Neal Ghoshal

  • Great book5

    Emma My daughter got this for her 2nd birthday, it also comes with a "Wonky Donkey" toy. She loves both the book and toy. Easy book to read to her and great fun, she loves it when we get to the "HE HAW" part so she can join in!! by Emma

  • Rude fun for all5

    Jim Brown It's a great wee book that's had my grandkids and me singing along for days. Just the right amount of "four years old" humour told through a catchy rhyme. by Jim Brown

  • Very amusing!4

    Deanne Hyde Although the quality of the soft cover book is indeed a bit poor, as noted by others, the book itself is great! It is very amusing with fabulous repeating rhymes and funny illustrations. I totally recommend this book! by Deanne Hyde

  • The Wonky Donkey5

    Tess Craig Smith's cd makes this book come to life. I have bought it for our collection and have gifted it to our mokopuna (grandchildren) and other little ones in our family... they all love it. I was fortunate to see Craig engage with primary school children in NZ last month and was very impressed with his interactive style. No wonder the Wonky Donkey is a favourite of ours. Our book came with a small donkey which makes the whole experience very enjoyable. I had to look for a bumble bee to accompany Willie the Bumblebee though. Craig is talented and brilliant. by Tess
