Chloe Crumb is 12 years old and miserable. She lives with her mother Janet, who loves only her snobby sister Annabelle and all things posh; her ex-rock-band-member dad, who is the only person that’s kind to her; and the family cat Elizabeth, who is named after HRH. She spends her time dreaming up stories, avoiding the bullying attention of Rosamund at school, and hating Christmas. She is desperately lonely, until she meets Mr Stink, a tramp whose whiff has the ability clear Starbucks and whose white dog Duchess is so grubby that everyone thinks she’s black. As the weather turns cold, Chloe feels sorry for Mr Stink, and sneaks him into the family’s garden shed, from which he emerges during the horrified Janet’s TV interview in the kitchen one morning. But this soon plays out well for Chloe’s haughty mother, who is campaigning to become local MP and is lauded for showing such charity to someone in need over the festive period. Although full of the usual Walliams humour, this second book in his roster introduces children aged nine and up to issues of prejudice, misconception and stereotype, offering up an important message about not judging people on first impressions. And guess what? The book was translated into Scots and is called Mr Mingin!

My 6 year old son chose this book himself, most likely based on the title, so I was a little dubious about what it would be like. I can honestly say we are loving reading it! The book is funny and very readable and... More
