Review of the children's book "Stinky" by Eleanor Davis
"Stinky" is a very fun and interesting children's book. This little picture book tells a funny story about a smelly purple monster living in a swamp. It was painted by the talented artist and cartoonist Eleanor Davis in 2008. This book belongs to the Toon Books series, or books for young children or those who are learning English. The sentences are all pretty simple and I think they will be easy for you to read and understand.
Stinky is a lilac monster who lives in a swamp in a cave with his toad Wartbelly, loves rotten onions, as well as everything smelly, filthy and the like. And he himself is smelly and dirty. But one day a strange boy in a red cap comes to his forest, and Stinky discovers that the boy is starting to build a house in the forest. One by one, Stinky comes up with insidious plans to scare and drive this impudent boy out of his forest. But the boy is not afraid of either muddy swamps covered with duckweed, over which annoying flies fly, or mud, which, in his opinion, smells very good, or toads, or even ghosts.
After one last attempt to kick this boy out, Stinky throws his red cap into a bottomless pit. But after learning how upset this boy was when he lost his cap, Stinky tried to get it. But alas, he himself fell into this pit. But fortunately, it turned out to be not so bottomless, and a boy passing by pulled out Stinky. Then Stinky confessed to the boy everything he had done, but the boy, instead of getting angry, laughed out loud. And then they became friends and began to live together in the forest.
