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.

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.

As adequately covered in other reviews, this book works well on 2 distinct levels.

My young children enjoyed having it read to them, and accepted the narrative without issue or too much puzzling. However, the book prompted me to ask them about things that happened here and there, which led to some brow-furrowing and gentle soul-searching. That's a good thing!

It's all too easy to get snuggly, cosy-fitting stories tied up with a pretty bow, and this story did remind me of the anarchic voice of Roald Dahl here and there.

Nice job, Mr Walliams.

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.

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!
