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!

There is much fun to be had by listening to the song and trying to predict the new word for each clue given. Craig Smith's song, The Wonky Donkey, won an APRA Silver Scroll Award in 2008 for Best Children's Song of the Year.

      Comments about The Wonky Donkey:

      We read daily to my almost 2 year old and he loves this book! He sniffs it out and we need to read it multiple times a day. The CD is great too, good to know how to read it as the author intended, but we still read it how we want to.

                  I use this book for my child care job and the kids just love it, especially the song, they have to have me put it on nearly every day. Fantastic book for the young ones.
