The second original, touching, twisted, and most of all hilarious novel for children from David Walliams, number one bestseller and fastest growing children's author in the country - beautifully illustrated by Quentin Blake. "Mr Stink stank. He also stunk. And if it was correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well..." Chloe sees Mr Stink every day, but she's never spoken to him.
Which isn't surprising, because he's a tramp, and he stinks.
But there's more to Mr Stink than meets the eye (or nose) and before she knows it, Chloe has an unusual new friend hiding in her garden shed.
As Chloe struggles to keep Mr Stink a secret, and her dad tries to hide a secret of his own, the stage is set for an epic family confrontation.
But there's one other person with an extraordinary secret - Mr Stink himself...

Review by martensgirl
It is very apt that Quentin Blake illustrated this book: Walliams' prose is very reminiscent of Dahl's. It is a cracking book about snobbishness and friendship and, like all good children's books, contains a smattering of jokes for adults. I am not a fan of Walliams on the TV, so I am amazed that he can produce such a kids book.

Not as good as i hoped, I actually preferred the tv version. However, the closing chapters are quite lovely.
