No stench without fire
5 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

This was the first David Walliams book adapted for TV and is also available in 3D as well. Chloe is a young schoolgirl who is a bit of a loner. Her school friends are horrid, her younger sister is more adored by her mother because she is a child prodigy and her mother is running for Parliament as a right wing MP. She is close to her father (Johnny Vegas)who was once a rock musician.

She forms a bond with a vagrant called Mr Stink (Hugh Bonneville) and his faithful dog. Mr Stink so called because of his foul odour is a difficult man to get on with and his decline to living in the the streets is due to tragic circumstances as you feel with his plummy accent and wise words that he once enjoyed better days

However Mr Stink becomes a media sensation when he ends up gate crashing a live TV interview with Chloe's mother and even the Prime Minister (David Walliams) wants to use him to shore up his declining fortunes.

This is a likable tale that both children and adults will enjoy, it has a moral without laying on the message too thickly. Lookout for the shopkeeper who also popped up in Gangster Granny!
