“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. ( )

This was a cute story, I really liked the illustrations in it. I thought it had a good story to it and also shows kids that they should always give people a chance. I think this book would be great for boys because of the monster and the swamp but girls might enjoy it to. The map of Stinky's swamp on the last page was a great touch to the story. Will have this in my reading corner.

A really great easy reader/comic book. Has everything to appeal to the reluctant reader, the pictures are engaging and it's fun and gross ... without being gross. Probably our favorite out of the Toon Books so far! ( )

This book is appropriate for 1st and 2nd graders. The text is easy to read and the words seem to be at that grade level. This book won the Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book. This book is about Stinky who lives in the stinky swap area with his friends who also reside in the swap area. He loves how all the things smell and slither. On the other side of the swap is a town, Stinky does not like the town because there are children that live their who don't like smelly things and they take baths and eat apples. One day a boy Nick who is new walks into the swap area and finds Stinky's tree fort. Sticky tries all these different plans to get the boy away from the swap area but when his plan works and begins to miss him. The two start a friendship because they like similar things. The boys are very happy in the end.
Teachers could use this book to:
- Teach about friendships and how your friends can be different.
- Use the highlighted or bold words in the story as vocabulary words. Have the students find them in groups and have them come up their own definition first and then as a whole group create a definition to fit each word. ( )

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.

A Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book
 
Stinky is a monster who loves pickles and possums but is terrified of people. When a new kid enters his swamp, this adorable little monster comes up with all sorts of crazy plans to scare him away. But Stinky quickly learns to conquer his fear, as he realizes that bats, rats, and toads aren’t the only friends you can find in the swamp.
 
This hilarious and heart-warming story by ferociously talented newcomer Eleanor Davis proves that even monsters can make new friends…warts and all!
