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

It all starts when Chloe makes friends with Mr Stink, the local tramp. Yes, he smells a bit. But when it looks like he might be driven out of town, Chloe decides to hide him in the garden shed.

Now Chloe's got to make sure no one finds out her secret. And speaking of secrets, there just might be more to Mr Stink than meets the eye… or the nose.

Touching, twisted, and very funny. Brilliantly illustrated by the much-beloved Sir Quentin Blake.

Did you know that Mr Stink was translated into Scots and is titled Mr Mingin?
