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.
1. She shouldn't talk to strangers.
2. If she gets too close to him her eyes will water with the smell.
Lots of other reasons too. Chloe has an extremely annoying little sister who is always 'Miss Perfect'. Mr Stink doesn't like being called a tramp, he prefers vagabond or wanderer. He is very fond of sausages. Chloe adores stories and that's the reason why she wants to speak to Mr Stink, she thinks that he might have an interesting story to tell. Her mother is very posh and keeps thinking that she shall become Prime Minister one day. They even have a cat called Elizabeth named after the Queen! Chloe does get bullied at School by a girl called Rosamond and her friends.
I loved this book and it made me laugh countless times. It made me feel like I was there watching it all happen. When something sad happened to someone, I imagined that I was that character. I liked the illustrations too and I liked the way David Walliams put lots of detail into stuff. I have read this book twice and I enjoyed it both times.
I liked this in my own opinion and it is one of my favourites. I would recommend this book to over 7 year olds. Please enjoy reading this book if you get it and don't blame me if the book stinks!
I have just read your new book "Mr Stink" and I wanted to tell you that I liked it just as much as your first book "The Boy in the Dress"
You seem able to get into the minds of children and know what they are thinking and how they see the world around them especially the ambiguous world that grown ups inhabit. Is this possibly because you are not quite a grown up yourself?
I have read many books especially all the ones by Roald Dahl who is another writer who is able to understand the world that children inhabit. I think, one day if you go one writing like this you may well be as good as him.
In Mr Stink you have chosen to tell a story about somebody most of us would cross the road to avoid instead you have not only made him the central character in your book you give him a wonderful story to show us, the readers, how through misfortune and circumstances any of us could become the kind of person others wish to avoid.
But this is not a sad story. It is a story full of hope and understanding as Mr Stink is able to change the lives of those he does eventually come in contact with through Chloe, who in a very clever turn of literary fun, is, in fact, you, as she is the one who is writing the story of Mr Stink for us, and her family especially her bossy politically driven mother and her impossibly good-at-everything younger sister
I can only wish that there were more stories like this not just for children but for anyone to read, it is a long time since I was a child myself!
I so enjoyed Mr Stink that I want everybody I know to read the book and I feel very proud to be able to write this letter to you that, hopefully, will be published in the Amazon page for your splendid new book
p.s. I really liked the pictures by Mr Quentin Blake who seems, through his illustrations, to really get what your book is about
Just finished reading Mr Stink and like all the students in my class, I was hooked from the beginning. The idea of the story is brilliant and David Walliams clevery leaves little hints throughout the story which all come together at the end in a surprise twist. The humour is witty and clever throughout, with roars of laughter from the whole class. I can't wait to read the rest... neither can my class!!!
A must have collection, suitable for all.
