The Wonky Donkey — as seen in the viral YouTube sensation!

After this video of a Scottish grandmother reading The Wonky Donkey to her grandson went viral, Scholastic reprinted the book to meet the enormous surge in demand.

Children will be in fits of laughter with this perfect read-aloud tale of an endearing donkey. By the book's final page, readers end up with a spunky, hanky-panky, cranky, stinky, dinky, lanky, honky-tonky, winky wonky donkey! With fun lyrics and illustrations, this picture book based on an award-winning song will appeal to adults and children alike.
