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.

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!

I am a trainee primary school teacher and recently purchased the complete set of books by David Walliams as I had heard the continuous good reviews and was even recommended by some students in my class. Like most people on here, I too thought that it was more David Walliams name put to the book that resulted in the quick success... how wrong I was!

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.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I actually read it twice even as an adult and found it very funny! I am a bit of a David Walliams fan and was excited to try his literature and it's enchanting, hilarious, a fantastic story and it certainly didn't 'Stink'!

The pictures illustrate it perfectly, you really do fell that Mr Stink and the other characters are real, Quentin Blake adds a Roald Dahl type feel to it and along with those classics, I do feel this will be loved for years to come, it is wickedly funny, I loved it, my son loved it and it's amusing enough to appeal actually to all ages though aimed for around 8-13 I'd imagine.

Lovely read, I read it in a couple of hours and was geuinely impressed how much I enjoyed this childrens book!

By J Fletcher on 19 Jan. 2015
Format: Paperback
Mr Stink is aimed at children, so why am I reviewing it? My wife is a teacher and wanted to check it out before reading it to her class, simple at that. We read the book to each other over a few nights as you might do for your child. Baring in mind that it's for kids, I loved it.

David Walliams is clearly in line to be the next Roald Dahl, the illustrations are even drawn by the fabulous Quentin Blake. The book is well written, imaginative and poignant. The story of a young girl called Chloe who befriends a dirty, smelly tramp is heartwarming and the end of the book (just to warn you in advance) had us both in tears.

The only reason this didn't get the full five stars from me was a few repetitive passages which seemed unnecessary and distracting. Maybe they would work for children, I'm not sure? I'm probably too old and jaded to enjoy that sort of thing so I'll let you decide on that one. They simply took the shine off what was otherwise a perfectly executed and magical story.

Mr Stink is a loveable eccentric who has a sausage addiction and a grounding in etiquette and impeccably good manners. Chloe is a girl from a mildly dysfunctional family. She is obviously lonely and finds a friend and confidant in Mr Stink and his dog. The book deals subtly with several difficult issues including bullying and homelessness and takes a clever side swipe at the political system. Mr Walliams is clearly no fan of David Cameron or his government and should be applauded for introducing children to the idea that politicians are not to be trusted implicitly!

A fun book with some thought provoking moments. It was as enjoyable to read as it was to listen to but be prepared for some hard questions from your children. After finishing I really wanted to find Mr Stink and give him a really big hug. Good job Mr Walliams. A sequel please!

Only recently has David Walliams entered my own world through the literary avenue and this was with 'Billionaire Boy'. I did thoroughly enjoy it, laughing out oud, being swept up in a billionaire lifestyle whilst remembering what it was like to be a child but with Mr Stink, it's a different story:
Two things drew me to this book,
1) How much I enjoyed Walliams as a writer and
2) The whole idea. A story about a tramp! Fantastic.

And to begin with it was.

I thoroughly enjoyed how there was no way to describe the tramp without using some form of the word 'stink'.
The characterisation of our two protagonists also helped to develop this unique idea but, there were occassions when it went soppy. Too nicey nice. You can see the moral of not to show prejudice to anyone, regardless of their appearance or of what you think of them. But this is where it draws similaries with Jacqueline Wilson. Again someone who takes characters that are typically prejudiced against or are not the your typical hero and shows them in a better and true light. Ye again, she too ends things too easily and happy happy. Billionaire Boy was slightly different. There needed to be more fun with Mr Stink at the end.
However, the appearance of Raj made my day. A shop keeper becoming an icon in his books is just a fantastic idea.
I don't regret reading Mr Stink at all, it's just there wre some occassions I wished I could have taken over and driven the plot where I wanted it to go.

Nevermind, onto Gangster Granny.
