I recently read David Walliams latest release, Billionaire Boy, and loved it and so was really pleased to find Mr Stink appear through my letter box. David Walliams has created a great character and Quentin Blake's illustrations accompany the story really well.
Walliams has written a great book which again gives a great message to readers of all ages - don't judge a person by their appearance.
Mr Stink is a tramp who sits all day on a bench in the town centre, avoided by everyone because ... he smells. Chloe is a school girl and the daughter of a mother who thinks she is extremely posh, wants to be a member of Parliament and looks down her nose at others. There are many secrets in the family and Mr Stink has a way of outing the secrets while making the family reunite and become a loving family once more.
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to adults and children alike who want a good story with a strong message included within.
Thank you to Harper Collins for sending me the book to review.
