The Wonky Donkey by Craig Smith (Author), Katz Cowley (Illustrator)
Paperback: 24 pages
Age Range: 2 – 6 years
I reviewed this book back in November, but I make no apologies for reviewing it again.
The reason I have chosen it again as my Book of the Day is because of a YouTube video that thanks to Peter Kay has gone viral. The video is of a Scottish Grandmother reading The Wonky Donkey to her grandchild. Check it out in the link below. Shows whaffect the book can have.
Kids will love this cumulative and hysterical read-aloud!
“I was walking down the road and I saw . . .
And he only had three legs!
He was a wonky donkey.”
Children will be in fits of laughter with this perfect read-aloud tale of an endearing donkey. By the book’s final page, readers end up with a spunky, hanky-panky, cranky, stinky, dinky, lanky, honky-tonky, winky wonky donkey!
The book behind the viral internet sensation of “The Scottish Granny” reading this story to her grandchild, viewed over 3 million times. Based on the popular song, THE WONKY DONKEY has sold over one million copies worldwide. Who ever heard of a spunky hanky-panky cranky stinky-dinky lanky honky-tonky winky wonky donkey? This hilarious picture book will have children – and adults – braying with laughter!
