The Scottish Granny Comes to NYC + Barnes & Noble Gift Card Giveaway!

Thank you to our partner Barnes & Noble! 

I adore reminders of all the goodness in the world, and it doesn’t get much better than a granny with a heartfelt, infectious laugh (AKA“The Scottish Granny” or “The Laughing Grandmother”) who went viral for merely being her delightful self while reading a book entitled The Wonky Donkey to her grandson.

Janice Clark has become quite the YouTube sensation, and Barnes & Noble recently brought her to their New York City – Union Square – location for fans (both big and small) to enjoy an exclusive live reading of the Craig Smith book.

More than 100 kids came to the event, and Janice could barely contain her laughter while reading The Wonky Donkey. Naturally, the kiddos laughed along with her and eagerly asked questions after the reading.

Janice Clark

He was a honky-tonky winky wonky donkey.”

I learned that the Wonky Donkey was out of print, and Barnes & Noble worked with the publisher to reprint copies for both their stores and online orders after they noticed a spike in searches of the book on when Janice’s YouTube video went viral. Thanks to this sweet Granny, the book has become a national bestseller!
