The Wonky Donkey by Craig Smith


The Wonky Donkey by Craig Smith

This bestselling book by Craig Smith and Katz Cowley is based on an award-winning children's song. I was walking down the road, and I saw a donkey...hee-haw! And he only had three legs. He was wonky donkey...In this hilarious, cumulative story, 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 who will have children in fits of laughter!


Hilarious. One to be red and sung over and over again. Parents In Touch This is quite possibly the best picture book ever. Go pick up this fantastic book. Little Fiction Fascination

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
