The Wonky Donkey. Written by Craig Smith, illustrated by Katz Cowley, 2009. Published by Scholastic, Auckland.
Great for young and old. Guaranteed to invoke a good old belly laugh. It has beautiful rhyme and repetition that young children will pick up quickly. The children never tire of this book.
What do you call a donkey who: has three three legs and one eye; likes country music; smells bad; is tall and slim; is always up to mischief; hasn’t had his morning coffee; and is quite good looking?
A spunky, hanky-panky, cranky, stinky-dinky, lanky, honky-tonky, winky, wonky donkey!
How many other variations can you think of?
