Internet Sensation - Wonkey Donkey

wonkey donkey, scottish grandma,

The Wonky Donkey is a children’s book, and song written by New Zealander Craig Smith. The book is based upon a song that Craig Smith wrote in 2005 after hearing the joke “What do you call a donkey with three legs? – A wonky donkey”. The song was later turned into the 2010 book.

Fast forward to to last year (I think) and watch this Scottish Grandma read the book to her Grandson. Seriously just watch…

This viral video propelled sales astronomical, making it a bestseller for Craig.  

The lovely Scottish lady has helped Wonkey Donkey, sell literally 1,000,000’s of copies worldwide. 

“He was a cranky stinky-dinky lanky honky-tonky winky wonky donkey.”

That snippet describes a donkey that only has one eye, listens to country music, is tall and slim and smells…..really bad.

So, if you are looking to buy a new book for your child, go ahead and give it ago.

Or try this other one I found, looks equally hilarious

My daughter Eliza got this book for Christmas and she has actually memorised it word for word.

Happy reading!
