Waterstones Says

Walliams’ second children’s novel and the one that really put him on the map, Mr Stink is a wickedly subversive and mischievous romp that, crucially, has just as much heart as grotesquery. Channeling the anarchic spirit of Roald Dahl and accompanied by vibrant illustrations from the legendary Quentin Blake, this is richly comic writing of deceptive depth and subtlety.

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...

It all starts when Chloe makes friends with Mr Stink, the local tramp. Yes, he smells a bit. But when it looks like 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 the nose.
