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

    I think this book is really amazing because it can make you laugh out loud, but also cry. It really made me realise that the homeless are actually people like me or you and that they can have interesting stories to tell. After all they don’t just end up there on the street just like that. I think everyone should read this book and think differently about homeless people. I personnaly LOVED this book.

  • Only good books are made into films, and only hood films can make you cry the second time you watch it. A kind person is loved and Mr Stinks little companion certainly is…
