The Wonky Donkey is a children's book, and song written by New Zealander Craig Smith and illustrated by Katz Cowley.[1] The book is based upon a song that Smith wrote in 2005 after hearing the joke "What do you call a donkey with three legs? - A wonky donkey".[2] The song was later turned into the 2010 book.[3] In 2018, the book was featured in a viral video of a grandmother laughing hysterically as she attempted to read it to her grandchild, leading to a surge in purchases of the book worldwide.[4]



In 2010 a school teacher alleged that Smith had heavily based the book on several internet jokes and did not reference this in the work in question.[7] Smith and his publisher responded by stating that the song predated the specific versions that the educator had seen on the internet and that it was possible that these versions had emerged because of his success with the song and resulting book.[8]

Try to read this out loud ! I watched a lady read it to a baby and she kept laughing which made me laugh so much. I loved it. I want a copy for future kids and one for my niece. It’s a good time!

This never ever gets old. Brilliant book that is fun to read over and over. And even funnier to give to unsuspecting relatives to read to your children. This is one of those books that is essential to all childrens book cases.

Fun, ridiculous rhymes that build on one another. Parents will enjoy reading it as much as children will enjoy hearing it. It will be one of those books that years later kids will remember with great fondness.
