Product description

The 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.

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!

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!!

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 Deanne Hyde 12 Dec 2011 4

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!

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.
