Margaret Clark, a 2003 Western Australia Young Readers’ Book Award nominee, is one of contemporary Australia’s most popular and treasured writers of children’s books.
In Clark’s very funny story, Stinky Shorts, performed admirably by Stig Wemyss as he channels the voice of a mischievous lad with a heart of gold, new kid on the block William Wilstinki, known as Stinky to his friends, a young hotdog and thrill seeker who can’t resist a peer pressure dare. This courageous and/or foolhardy behavior leads to some unfortunate problems and lessons are learned along the way.
Prepubescent boys will surely delight in living vicariously through the exploits of Stinky.
Life's one big dare or double dare for Stinky, until a very cold episode with a huge iceblock gives Stinky's life a new twist.
