Book Description

27 May 2010

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Childrens book with an adult message 7 Dec 2009
By sb
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Mr Walliams has achieved quite a feat with this book - aimed at children, it is quite child friendly and easy enough for my five year old to understand when read to her, and if taken at face value is quite an entertaining story. What makes the book special though is that there is some quite serious morality involved in the way he puts across issues of predjudice, misconceptions and sterotypes in a way that children can understand, and hopefuly learn from. For example, Mr Stinks posh accent is quite surprising to be found coming from a tramp, but does that expose my adult predjudice and preconceived ideas that tramps will all have a voice ravaged by substance abuse - my five year old daughter thinks not and accepted that Mr Stink has a history behind him which is where he gets his voice from. Guided by Walliams' very clever story telling, children are led to see people as individuals and not just stereotyped generalisations. Very commendable, educational and done in an entertaining way.

Mr Walliams, I don't understand most of the humour you put into Little Britain, but this book is excellent on many levels and if the sketch show ever dries up, I sincerely hope you develop as a children's writer and the very best of luck to you. The Little Britain in which we live needs a new Roald Dahl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting. 27 Dec 2012
By Pyewacket TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When Chloe finds a very stinky tramp sitting on a park bench she immediately feels sorry for his plight not however, for nearly being sick because he and his dog, Duchess both smell soooooooooo awful.

She doesn't like to think of him sleeping on the streets because after all to her eyes, he is very old so she hatches a plan to shelter him. Where, would be a spoiler so you will have to read the book and find out.

It would seem that Mr. Stink hasn't always been a tramp either judging by his refined manners and some of the articles he has about his person.........who is he really and what is running from?

This is a delightful book for adults and children alike both funny and sad in places. I love the way Walliams has made Chloe's Mother turn out........she is a martinet and runs the household like a sergeant major. She favours Chloe's younger sister and is always shouting at her poor beleagered husband that their name is not Crumb but 'Croooooome'. Shades of Hyacinth Bucket here :-)

I watched the tv adaptation of this book and have to say it was done really well and Hugh Bonneville played a 'Stinkingly Stinky' part as Mr. Stink.

Funny and entertaining and really highly recommended. Also not overly long for children to lose interest in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Certainly not a stinker! 15 April 2010
By pacem et amorem TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Hats off to David Walliams - this story is beautifully written. A tender, humourous look at the twists and turns of life and how first appearances can be deceptive, this is a book that should be popular with parents and children alike. Walliams deals with his subject extremely sensitively but also allows his sense of humour to shine through. The characters are well fleshed out and whilst Mr Stink may have stunk the book certainly doesn't!

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Amazing Mr Stink 7 July 2012
By Nibbles
Format:Paperback
I am eight years old and I found this book easy to read. The book was "super amazing" and very funny, but also sad in places. David Walliams's excellent discriptions made me paint a picture of Mr Stink in my head. I was always stopping up late to read another chapter because the book was such a page turner. The next book I am going to read will definitely be by David Walliams.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad Smell - Great Story 28 Oct 2009
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
David Walliams will already be well known to you
as a co-creator of 'Little Britain', cross-channel
swimmer and invererate London socialite.

That he has also extended his not inconsiderable talents
into the world of childrens' fiction is to be applauded.
His first book 'The Boy In A Dress' was a hoot and his
newest venture 'Mr Stink' is a worthy second outing.

Mr Walliam's seems to have a good understanding about
the importance of keeping a healthy balance between the
thoughts and deeds of both goodies and baddies in his narrative.

Like the inestimable Roald Dahl before him he knows what
makes a worthy hero/heroine and the value of the grotesque.

Poor Chloe doesn't have the strongest sense of self-worth
on the planet and this is hardly surprising given her
diabolical mother, ghastly little sister Annabelle and
somewhat spineless but harmless father.
That she has survived them at all is a minor miracle.

Her friendship with an especially smelly but urbane tramp
called Mr Stink highlights the importance of honest inner
values over judgements made on the basis of outer appearance.

Mr Stink has a painful story to tell and Mr Walliams leads us slowly to the
stark truth with considerable pathos, sensitivity and ribald good humour.

Along the way there are some fine set-pieces; not least
of all Mr Stink's hillarious appearance on 'Question Time'
and a cringe-inducing audience with a callous, insensitive
and hypocritical Prime Minister.

There are "bottom" jokes in abundance for those who like that sort
of thing and even a brief reference to Mr Walliams' iconic
"lemon drizzle cake" to knowingly nudge and tease us.

A stonkingly good story with a strong moral foundation, cunningly
illustrated, as ever, by the peerless and stupendous Quentin Blake.

Recommended.

David Walliams writes in a simplistic tone. The story reads well and the child star has a good character which develops throughout the story. I enjoyed the tv version better.
