Reviews

A strong story with strong moral foundation. My boy sat and read it without the need for me to keep reminding him.

My son has trouble getting to sleep and this Mr. Stink audiobook CD is very good listening material to help him fall asleep. Great storyline with great moral and a pleasure to listen to.

Daughter of mine described this book as the best she has ever read and this is enough for me to give a five star rating.
