"Mr Stink stank. He also stunk. And if it was correct English to say he stinked, then he stinked as well….”
Chloe sees Mr Stink every day, but she’s never spoken to him. Which isn’t surprising, because he’s a tramp, and he stinks.
But there’s more to Mr Stink than meets the eye (or nose), and before she knows it, Chloe has an unusual new friend hiding in her garden shed.
As Chloe struggles to keep Mr Stink a secret, and her dad tries to hide a secret of his own, the stage is set for an epic family confrontation. But there's one other person with an extraordinary secret: Mr Stink himself.

This was the first book by David Williams my family listened to. This book is very heartwarming, a little sad, and ends on a great note. I really enjoyed how the author brought together so many aspects into one book. My kids were entranced, and we had a great time listening to this book. I would highly recommend this book for grade school kids. Be prepared to explain what some words mean though. "Tramp" for example. My kids loved it despite the language difference.
My 7-year old son loves this story. (We're only about halfway through, because we only listen to it when we're in the car for longish time periods.) The reader/narrator's vast array of British accents for the various characters are cartoonish when they need to be, but sincere and honestly human when required. Just like a good comedy. Great entertainment with a good human story in the middle of it. I love it too.
"Mr Stink by David Walliams"
Funny and had me giggling, lovely bed time 'read' and was read brilliantly by David Walliams, not just a book for the children.
I loved this book. The fact that Matt Lucas and David Walliams both do the voices of the various characters makes the book come alive, and if, like me, you're a fan of Little Britain you will no doubt relish hearing their voices in this setting. Though it's not a dramatized play, it gives the audiobook a flavour of this, complete with sound effects and is as such perfect for children of all ages, like me.
"overall AMAZING READ THIS BOOK !!!!"
I loved this book at the start kind of boring the by the middle it got really interesting
I loved this book because it has a great story line and that it has many existing chapters in it .Thank you for the enjoyment that I have experience while listing to this book.
"Steer clear if you have a sensitive child"
I will never buy a walliams book again. Had 2 and both have death of a loved one and leaving of a loved one. Really upset my son that he would'nt sleep. Only reason i've one star is because I couldn't submit review with less
"Stinky fun - not too deep."
Fun performance of a heart-warming tale with lots of toilet humour. Kids aged 6-12 enjoyed it. The story was neither fantastical nor plausible, so I'm afraid this is no Roald Dahl. The vocabulary is not challenging, and it's not beautifully written, but it is fun and has a good moral tale. Story was let down by the caricature mother and Prime Minister I felt - these were 2-dimensionsl characters there to be despised.
"Feeble and formulaic in every respect."
A cynical money making exercise that was painful to listen to. Our son hated it too. Avoid
"Fab Bedtime Story"
I got this for my boys to listen to at bedtime whilst on holiday, I have enjoyed listening too and we already have another of David Walliams lined up already
I liked mr stink because he was friends with chloe and he was nice. (Evie, 6)
Amiaizing perfect funny I have no words I wanted to continue every second you just want to now what will happen next
