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.

Not funny for young children

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.show more

hilarious!

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.show more

very funny!

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.show more

Awful

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!show more

Thoroughly enjoyable

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.show more
