Alex Sparrow and the Really Big Stink Publisher's Summary
Alex Sparrow is a super-agent in training. He is also a human lie detector. Working with Jess (who can communicate with animals), he must find out why their friends - and enemies - are all changing into polite and well-behaved pupils. And exactly who is behind it all.
This is a humorous tale full of smells, jokes and superhero references. Oh, and a rather clever goldfish called Bob.
In a world where kids' flaws and peculiarities are being erased out of existence, Alex and Jess must rely on what makes them different to save the day.
