The YouTube sensation!

Laugh along with the Wonky Donkey -- as seen in the viral YouTube sensation!

The Wonkey Donkey is based on an awardwinning children's song. With hilarious lyrics and illustrations, this picturebook will appeal to adults and children alike.

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.

Wonky Donkey SENSATION! After this video of a Scottish grandmother reading The Wonky Donkey to her grandson went viral, Scholastic has issued a reprint of the book to meet the surge in demand. Good Morning America ran a segment calling the video the "feel good video of the day". The story also headlined Publishers Weekly Children's Bookshelf.
