Reviews for The Wonky Donkey
The best testament about this book is that the author lives near us and whenever we see him out and about, there are always littlies (including mine) pointing excitedly and saying, "Look - that's the wonky donkey man." by Liz Tibbuttunder review
I am a early childhood educator and have read this book many times. The children enjoy the repetitive words and complete the sentence before I do. We always follow the reading of the book with the C.D., which encourages the children to dance after sitting still for the story, it also gives them an opportunity to work the giggles out. georgina by Georgina Smithunder review
Great Kids book from NZ author
We first heard Craig Smith, the author, sing this story at a local pizza restaurant to a group of children, they were enraptured with the story as we were. So when it was released here in NZ as a book with CD, I bought a copy for my godson who was turning 2 and gave it to him for his birthday. He absolutely loves the Wonky Donkey and often wants it read to him, needless to say it is now a well worn book. by Natasha Barnettunder review
This is a great book, loads of children enjoy its funny lines and repetition. BUT please note, this version DOESN'T include the CD and I had trouble trying to download the song from the website they provided. It was lucky I already had the CD version of the book. For those that are worried about the cover, put some clear seal/duraseal over it. It will protect it and you can wipe it clean. by Angela Hendersonunder review
My two girls absolutely love this book. They wait & giggle in anticipation for the "stinky dinky" page!! We have also seen Craig Smith perform this to groups of kids who are all transfixed by him & the songs. Look out for Willbee the Bumblebee....... by Laura Dayunder review
This was my first purchase from the Book Depository and I have been quite disappointed - I know the book was inexpensive but it really does look and feel very cheap. It's (very flimsy) front cover is not big enough so the inside pages inside stick out.
Also, the reference to the website for downloading the song is useless - it says you can only access it if you live in the US or Canada which we don't?
The story itself is ok I guess but what I thought would be quirky and fun has really just been a disappointment. by angela seymourunder review
The Wonky Donkey
An awesome book from a New Zealand Author. Your kids will love it. I've never meet a child who was scared of the book yet. by Erin Phillipsunder review
My son received this book twice for christmas, it is awesome and funny. by Linda Harrisunder review
They recently read this story at my daughters kinder and she is terrified of it! I'm sorry but a bird pecking out the eye of a donkey is not a great way to start a book!
If you have a sensitive child I DO NOT recommend this book by Karen McGoldrickunder review

So much fun!
I have bought this book so many times. It is a great gift book! Parents and children love it! My favourite is the page that includes the donkey's need for a coffee! It is definitely one of those books that will be read and re-read until everyone knows the words off by heart! Enjoy, laugh and smile! This book is a memory maker! by Rebecca Gaskellunder review
