Booktalk: Stinky is a little swamp monster who loves a smelly day. He loves pickled onions and pickled bananas and the mucky mud of the swamp and slimy slugs. But he doesn’t like kids because they take baths and don’t like swamps and eat apples and cake, yech! So imagine how upset Stinky gets when he sees that a boy who eats apples has built a tree house in his swamp! Stinky needs a plan to make that boy get out of his swamp if it’s the last thing he does!

Not good for read aloud, will re-visit as an early reader. The story is fun. ( )

This book's underlying theme of stereotypes, misconceptions and acceptance is great. It could easily be used in a classroom to begin conversations about why stereotypes exist and how to get rid of them through understanding. ( )

“Stinky” is a fascinating book with a main message of not judging someone based off of the things you think are correct. This is shown within the main character Stinky.. This character develops in that he starts off afraid of the boy in his swamp, then he attempts to scare him, but when that doesn’t work he runs away and hides, until the boy finds him and they bond over the things they have in come. This then shows Stinky that he had the wrong idea about the boy and that they could be friends after all. Something else I found very interesting about this book is that it is written and illustrated in a comic book style. I truly enjoyed this because it kept me as the reader engaged and constantly reading everything from the dialogue to the signs and bags. I feel this style of writing is beneficial to the reader for it allows them to take in the entire story and all the small details. ( )

The images are round and welcoming. It’s clear Stinky is a monster, with smell lines and flies radiating from him (where else could you do this but comics?), but he’s still cute.
