Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Stinky the monster is content in the smelly swamp that he shares with his pet toad and other friendly animals until a boy from the nearby town wanders into the area. Stinky is afraid of kids because they are so different from him. They like to take baths and eat apples and candy while he loves mud and pickled onions. When he tries to scare the boy away, he discovers that the boy is also fond of toads and enjoys exploring the muckiest part of the swamp, and the two become friends. The charming cartoon artwork, full of humorous details, complements the text, and the muted color scheme makes Stinky endearing rather than scary. The simple vocabulary and repetition of words make the text accessible for emergent readers, who will love the graphic-novel format. The engaging plot shows young readers that it's possible to make friends with those who may seem very different from themselves.–Mari Pongkhamsing, St. Perpetua School, Lafayette, CA

From Booklist

Swamp monster Stinky has a good life in all the wonderful, stinky, squishy mud, with his pet toad, Wartbelly, and other swamp critters such as slimy slugs and possums. However, close by is a town full of kids that Stinky thinks are yucky because they like to take baths and eat such things as cakes and apples. When a boy invades the swamp and builds a tree house, Stinky tries to scare him away. Nothing works—it turns out the boy actually likes toads and swamps—but when they finally meet and talk, each one realizes he needs a friend. Davis’ colorful art makes Stinky and his swamp delightfully yucky and attractive to young readers. Her simplified graphic-novel structure does have some sophistication in panel placement, but the panels’ reading order is clear. Although the vocabulary may be too much for younger children to read on their own, the repetition will have them quickly learning mucky, yucky, and gross. Grades K-2. --Kat Kan

Format: Hardcover
Stinky is funny, colorful with a lot of activity on every page, and it teaches an important lesson about friendship and overcoming prejudices without being heavy-handed. Eleanor Davis' book is full of vivid detail--she even includes a map of Stinky's territory and the town that the little boy Nick lives in. There are some great lines that kids repeat over and over again, for example: "mucky mud, slimy slugs and smelly monsters." It's great for a more experienced reader to read alone, or for read alouds with younger children who are still learning how to read independently.

This new book has both me and my kids laughing at every page. The drawings are not only beautiful, but cute and witty. My son really identifies with the baseball-hat-wearing Nick and asks me, "Mom, can we go to the swamp and find Stinky?" The lovable relationship between this unexpected duo is a model friendship.

Stinky Seymour is a monster who lives in the swamp. The dirty, mucky, smelly, gooey swamp. He lives with his pet toad, Wartbelly, and really loves his pickled onions.

What he doesn't love is the town on the other side of the swamp, because towns have - kids! Kids like to eat apples (yuck!) and take baths (double yuck!), and they don't like his dirty, mucky, smelly, gooey swamp.

And that's just the way Stinky likes it.

But then Nick, a new kid from the town, builds a tree house in Stinky's swamp. Stinky is not about to let this go on, so he hatches a plan that will get the kid out of his swamp.

What follows is a fun adventure where Stinky and Nick both learn a thing or two - Stinky about the type of kids who love swamps, and toads, and ghosts, and Nick about making new friends.

The Raw Junior books are a wonderful introduction to graphic novels for kids, and STINKY is a great addition to the line. The full-color illustrations fit perfectly with the story, and the text is simple enough for younger readers to read on their own or with a parent. A really fun book!

My 6 year old daughter devoured this book. In her words, "it was weird, scary, funny... I liked it a lot". Great art, kinda reminded me of Mad Magazine from when I was a kid. Good buy. Wish there were more Stinky books.

My children love me to read to them, but no book was captivating enough to convince my six year old with autism to want to read to me. This book, however, was a total ten out of ten. My son loved reading it, and his younger brother patiently listened. We want more Stinky. He is a great, loveable character, and I must say that I always hate book full of bathroom humor and such, but this one didn't offend me at all.

This book contains illustrations that will captivate a child's imagination and hold his interest. In addition, the story is a morality tale that will strike a chord with any child as he begins to understand those around him. It pulls some important thoughts together and gently urges children to be open to differences..

In an era full of visual distractions, "Stinky" shines as a positive example of new media -- a combination of graphic and literal learning that plays into the ways modern kids think. With stunning graphics and a captivatingly sweet story, Davis' "Stinky" is a pleasure to read, and moreover, a pleasurable way to learn HOW to read.

Stinky is a swamp dwelling monster who learns he may have more in common with the new kid than he'd like to believe. Both Stinky and Nick, the new kid, learn to appreciate each others' differences and realize that once you get to know someone, they aren't all that scary. Beautifully illustrated, this clever story finds new friends in the most unlikely of places.
