My DD sent me this link last night of a Scottish granny (come on which one of you is it?) reading Wonky Donkey to her grandchild . I couldn’t stop laughing. It’s gets funnier as it goes on.

Oh my word! Crying here 😂😂😂

I was crying watching it too, especially when it got to the “likes country music bit” grin

Apparently the book was out of print but they are considering (or possibly have by now) decided to reprint it as the video has been shared so many times.

My sister has just acquired this book so that she can read it to her GC. A friend who lives in Australia bought it and posted it to her.

Friends from NZ brought it when they were over, it comes with a CD and we have been having great fun with it.
I am Scottish so even the accent is ok.

I have just preordered the book as it is coming back into print in the UK mid November. Can’t wait to read it to the youngest DGD smile

I really want that book.
I suppose it is east to write out though and just read.
I will do it for my D who has a pre-school.
I am sure the children will love it.

I think the pictures make the book though annsixty I have preordered it from Amazon for my youngest granddaughter (well for grandma really) wink

We watched this while away this week and all of us sat with tears rolling down our cheeks... Of laughter of course

Gillybob, I’d seen this clip on Facebook and shared it! Watched it so many times - so funny😁😁.
The baby is ‘fair-taken’ with it, too!

I've had to wipe my eyes.It was hilarious. Love it.
I can remember this happening to me many years ago reading about a big turnip that nobody could pull out of the ground.

downtoearth the book is called 'I need a new bum!!! it is available on Amazon.

kittylester Sat 20-Oct-18 16:36:00

Oh, gillybob that's hilarious I'm so glad I've got a new baby to buy it for.

KatyK Sat 20-Oct-18 16:37:38

Very funny grin

gillybob Sat 20-Oct-18 17:01:59

Are you sure it’s the new baby you will be buying it for kittylester ? wink

kittylester Sun 21-Oct-18 09:03:56

Well, possibly not gilly! grinI've just ordered it from Waterstones - any excuse to go in to the shop.

Thank you for the link gillybob . It should be on the NHS, it has done me good seeing that and laughing till I cried!

NfkDumpling Sun 21-Oct-18 10:10:42

I’m not sure I could get to the end! Brilliant!

mcem Sun 21-Oct-18 10:16:05

Loved it!
(At one point the subtitles refer to the baby as Wayne when actually the West Coast expression is 'the wean' ie the wee one!)
Going by the twinkle in the eyes of DS and DiL, I believe I may soon have a reason to buy and enjoy this book. Will know later today!
On the other hand DGD (8) would love to read it to us!

GrannyGravy13 Sun 21-Oct-18 10:50:14

I need a new bum is listed on Amazon as I need a new butt!
Just ordered it for GS.

Witzend Sun 21-Oct-18 11:04:58

Brilliant! So funny.
Will def. get that book for Gdcs (2 and 3) for Christmas.

goldengirl Sun 21-Oct-18 11:28:04

It brought tears to my eyes! It's brilliant. I think a Christmas present for one of the GC is now sorted!
