A Great read for Kids & Adults alike, had me laughing out loud many times :)
A delightful read about a girl, Chloe, who befriends a tramp who really, really smells. Chloe, a troubled girl due to bullying from her mum and school friends, sees more than a smelly tramp, she sees MR Stink as a confidante. Their friendship encourages others not to be so judgemental as they soon warm to Mr Stink and his commonsense approach to the daily troubles that cause grief.
From BookTrust (UK):Mr Stink, the filthy old tramp who is a permanent resident of a particular bench in the park, certainly lives up to his name.However, his overwhelmingly awful whiff doesn't stop Chloe making friends with him and his dog and when it looks as though they may be run out of town she knows she has to do something fast and hides them in the garden shed.As Chloe's family is quietly falling apart, Mr Stink unwittingly becomes the source of their redemption after a surprise TV appearance on Question Time.Irreverant and charming, this is a hilarious and surprisingly touching story about secrets, love and life.Illustrator: Quentin BlakeReading age: 10 Interest level: 9-11
