Review Quotes:
Praise for The Wonky Donkey
The 2009 children's book -- about a one-eyed, caffeine-deprived, flatulent, yet ultimately charming donkey -- by Kiwi author Craig Smith found new life after a video of a Scottish woman reading it to her grandson went viral... 75,000 copies in print in the U.S. before the video premiered. A few months later, that number is now one million. Ten consecutive weeks in which The Wonky Donkey has ranked in the top 10 of Amazon's 'Most Sold' list for books. -- Entertainment Weekly
