Mr Stink by David Walliams
The blurb makes you want to read on because it makes you wonder why Chloe is so lonely and it leaves you wondering what Chloe would have in common with a tramp, why she hid Mr.Stink in her garden shed and what more there is to Mr.Stink’s past.
I liked the bright yellow cover and its vivid red writing, and I also think that the illustration of Mr.Stink himself is great, but I’m not so sure about the illustration of Chloe, as she has very large nostrils and doesn’t really look like your average girl.
Reading about a tramp wouldn’t really be my first choice of book to pick up from a shelf but I was intrigued to find out what a twelve–year–old girl would find interesting about Mr.Stink.
I would say that this is a kind of mystery book with a message behind it – treat everybody the same, and don’t judge a book by its cover. I would also recommend this book to anybody that has a wild imagination and a sense of humour.
My favourite character is Annabelle as she is adored by her mum and almost every hour of her day is taken up by either lessons or clubs.
