"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.

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.
"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.
"Great for younger listeners who like Roald Dahl"
My 5 and 7 year old boys sniggered loudly in the back of the car at this tale of a very smelly tramp.
Whilst it lacks some of the grim nastiness of Roald Dahl, it's that way inclined. I'm not sure I enjoyed it as much as they did (slightly predictable), but having the kids cackling with laughter in the back of car makes it worth every penny.
Would certainly look out for David Walliams as narrator again. Great bonkers female characters.
when i sat down and got the app audible i thought this would be rubbish but when i downloaded mr stink i couldnt stop laughing! a funny spoken out book where i enjoyed every chapter.this is great for blind people who cant read can still ejoy books like mr stink. WOW!
I absolutely love David Walliams. I can't believe I haven't discovered the new Roald Dahl by now. My kids love it too. Really funny, great character but a moral message behind the fun. Lots of talking point for children. I will definitely be buying another by this same author.
"BEST MOVIE AND BOOK AND AUDIO BOOK EVER"
I never knew about this till the movie came out.
It was the best movie ever watched in 2012 and even taking to 2013.
Absoutely for kids and wow how imaginable David Walliams is, i thought the movie added all that extra detail but nop its in the book an example under the stairs there was a cupboard, its so realistic!
Honestly i thought the movie was made first!
"excellent must have"
what can i say this is so funny - my son loves it , and david walliams and matt lucas reading it well thats an added bonus ! highly recomended for children . my son is 9 and thinks its ace !
