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 might just be more to Mr Stink than meets the eye… or nose! A hilarious, touching tale of stinks and surprises, illustrated by Quentin Blake.
