Publisher's Summary

The second original, touching, twisted and most of all hilarious novel and audiobook for children performed by David Walliams and Matt Lucas. This wonderful story is told by two of Britain’s best loved comedians and the characters from David’s book spring to life with fantastic voices and characters galore that will make you laugh out loud.

Read by David Walliams and Matt Lucas.

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 a an extraordinary secret - Mr Stink himself....

great reading, wouldn't recommend for parents

The reading was great, the story fine for little ears, but I wouldn't recommend it for a road trip. a bit too much for the parents to endure.

Lots of laughs!

Great to hear David Walliams bring his own funny, loveable characters to life. Suitable for kids aged 8-11 years, and their parents :)

Absolutely brilliant

We listened to Mr Stink on our drive to school for a few days and it was so wonderful we didn't want to stop listening when we arrived. Beautifully put together with superb character voices.

Awesome

This was just so wonderful for everyone, even I loved listening with the kids. Great listen for a long car ride or just broken up over a couple of weeks while doing the school run. Narration was just perfect!

one of my favorite

I loved it sometimes they have naughty jokes and I like that and the only negative is the Annabelle can be a bit snooty

Great Story

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.

A very aromatic comedy drama

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.

Great entertainment

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.

Pretty good!!

Okay, Ilike this because it’s different. Other books are like ‘house crumbled to the ground and he was homeless and then girl came up nd help thee end’ but this is better! I recommend this to 7-12’s, as it is really funny but can get a bit complicated. David made all the characters sound real. It was like I was there!!! It was so good. I fell asleep really quickly as I was listening to the book so intently. All in all a great book 👍🏻

Very good

I liked it because it’s funny and humorous and I think David Walliams did a very good job with this book I would recommend this book to all ages because it isn’t too rude but isn’t to childish I would rate this book a 4 star rating for the reasons above

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

Feeble and formulaic in every respect.

A cynical money making exercise that was painful to listen to. Our son hated it too. Avoid

Excellent story, funny, poignant and bittersweet

Another wonderful book by the amazing Mr Walliams! A joy for all ages Wonderfully read, it is a funny and heartwarming tale, tugs at the heart strings in some places and is a definite "dont judge a book by its cover" story. My daughter and I listened to this in a day as we couldnt bear to wait to hear what was coming next!! If you don't have a lazy Sunday to do this in like we did, the chapters are all less than 10 minutes long so it is also perfect for a quick listen on the go. My daughter has listened to this several times now and has also read the book, and I shall also be listening to this wonderfully funny, yet thought provoking story again. Thank you Mr Walliams for another great read/listen. Highly recommended for anyone from age 0-100 (or over!)
