Description - Wonky Donkey by Craig Smith
I was walking down the road, and I saw a donkey ... hee-haw! And he only had three legs. He was a wonky donkey ... 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!

Book Review: Wonky Donkey by Craig Smith - Reviewed by rachthevego (15 Jan 2012)
This is a hilarious story of a ridiculous donkey. Illustrations of this lopsided cheeky little fellow make the book highly entertaining for the little ones and big kids at heart. Our toddler loves doing interpretive dancing to the CD sound track - almost as funny as the book itself.
Just be careful when trying to read / sing the book because it can be very easy to say some undesirable words that end in "nky" and rhyme with lanky......ooops.
This team have also written a book about a little bumble bee (again with a CD sound track) but I would have to say that the original is still the best!
