Alfred is a great dog. He's super sweet and he can run really fast. There's just one teeny, tiny thing . . . Alfred STINKS. His feet stink, his back stinks, his tummy stinks. Alfred's owner, a little boy, loves him and tries everything to help: soaps and incense, perfumes and shampoos. And he finally, finally, gets Alfred clean. But then . . . the boy kind of misses the stink. And with Alfred carefully avoiding every puddle and constantly brushing his teeth, he's not very fun anymore. It turns out, Alfred without his stink just isn't Alfred! This playful picture book by the cocreator of In My Heart reminds us that, when it comes to the people (and pets) we love, sometimes the quirks are the best parts.

"The colored line-drawing illustrations featuring the cross-eyed, rotund, homely Alfred, often surrounded by the mass of squiggles and swirls that represent his stench, have a childlike quality with a surreal vibe that matches Alfred's situation well. The text has a varied vocabulary with a catchy repetition that could easily become a chant after a few times through. Those looking for a portrait of true devotion need look no further than this."
