This Year’s Book

We are delighted to announce that our chosen book for 2019 is Mr Stink by David Walliams.

Chloe, the loneliest girl in the world, makes friends with Mr Stink, the local tramp. One day, she decides to help him out when she realises he might be driven out of town. How does she do that? Well, she hides him in her shed.

She has to make sure that no one finds out her secret. And speaking of secrets, there just might be more to Mr Stink than what meets the eyes (or the nose). This hilarious and charming story is filled with love, life and surprising secrets!  

Reviews: 

“A pleasure to read. A beguilingly funny, original and thought-provoking tale… hilarious” Amanda Craig, The Times

“The story is an inventive joy.” – The Daily Telegraph

“a delight from start to finish… a new Roald Dahl” – The Times
