The Wonky Donkey, by Craig Smith and illustrated by Katz Cowely, is a very funny story. I love this story. I made sure we sent copies of this to our friends overseas for their kids. It definitely changed my opinion of donkeys, that’s for sure.

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”. This book is guaranteed to get both children and adults laughing.

The book


also includes a CD of the author’s rendition of this story as a song, which is extremely catchy and fun to listen to. If you want to listen to this, you can play it here.

This is an award winning book. It won the New Zealand Post Children’s Choice Award in 2009 and won the APRA New Zealand Children’s Song of the Year in 2008.

This book is available the Munch E Store: www.munchcupboard.com.
