Book Description

27 May 2010

The second original, touching, twisted, and most of all hilarious novel and audiobook for children performed by David Walliams and Matt Lucas. This wonderful story is told by two of Britains best loved comedians and the characters from David’s book spring to life with fantastic voices and characters galore that will make you laugh out loud.

"Mr Stink stank. He also stunk. And if it was correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well…”

Chloe sees Mr Stink every day, but she’s never spoken to him. Which isn’t surprising, because he’s a tramp, and he stinks.

But there’s more to Mr Stink than meets the eye (or nose) and before she knows it, Chloe has an unusual new friend hiding in her garden shed.

As Chloe struggles to keep Mr Stink a secret, and her dad tries to hide a secret of his own, the stage is set for an epic family confrontation. But there's one other person with a an extraordinary secret – Mr Stink himself…

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
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 Bad Smell - Great Story 28 Oct 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, entertaining and easy to read 11 Aug 2010
By jsm999
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book tells the story of a young girl who befriends a dirty smelly tramp, and the resulting effects on her and her family. There is plenty of humour to appeal to children, mainly of the silly/smelly variety, and a deeper message about not judging people by first impressions. My 11-year old enjoyed it, but I think it would also appeal to younger children (maybe on a slightly different level), including children too young to read it for themselves.
Other reviewers have made comparisons with Roald Dahl, and I think the book will be enjoyed by Dahl fans - it shares the irreverent and subversive tone of his books and should appeal to boys and girls of most ages.
