Mr Stink

Mr Stink stank. He also stunk. And if it was correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well…

It all starts when Chloe makes friends with Mr Stink, the local tramp. Yes, he smells a bit. But when it looks as though he might be driven out of town, Chloe decides to hide him in the garden shed. Now Chloe’s got to make sure no one finds out her secret. And speaking of secrets, there just might be more to Mr Stink than meets the eye… or nose! A hilarious and touching tale of stinks, secrets and surprises, illustrated by Quentin Blake.

“A pleasure to read. A beguilingly funny, original and thought-provoking tale… hilarious.” Amanda Craig, The Times

“Comic genius… A joy for kids both big and small.” Edinburgh Evening News

    I absolutely loved this book because when Mr Stink moved into Chloe’s shed and Mr. Stink and his dog were eating sausages I thought it was really kind to let a homeless person (Mr. Stink) to live with them
