Great Australian Storybook Collection: The Wonky Donkey
IN THE news today, a honky-tonky wonky donkey has hundreds of Gladstone kids in stitches!
Well, at least he will if you use the token inside today's paper to grab your bonus copy of the Australian classic book The Wonky Donkey for just $2.30.
It marks the second book in our Great Australian Storybook Collection promotion and we've got another 13 lined up over the next two weeks.
This picture book, written by Craig Smith and illustrated by Katz Cowley, will appeal to kids of all ages and parents will likely have a chuckle too.
It's hard not to love the poor three-legged donkey with one eye and a love of country music, and as he encounters funny situations along his journey and with rhyming lyrics holding the story together, it's an entertaining read.
