Children's Book Review: The Stinky Street Stories by Alex Ratt 

When Brian is awakened one weekend morning by a horribly putrid smell, he thinks that it is up to him and his trusty friend Nerf to try and uncover what is causing it. They set off on a journey and find some truly awful stenches along the way.
But that is just for starters, as life on Stinky Street is nothing short of reeky and rotten!
There are 3 different stories in this novel, (one of them is divided into two parts), all set along Stinky Street, and each one is hilarious. 
My 9 year-old daughter thought it was a fabulous book, and I agree with her. We read it together, and I was laughing along at all of the antics that Brian (or Brain, as he prefers to be called!) and Nerf get up to.
The illustrations also contribute to the hilarity of the novel (the book is illustrated by award-winning children's illustrator, Jules Faber). 
I would recommend this book for readers aged 7-10 years old. The stories are told in a format that is easy to read and to comprehend.
The Stinky Street Stories book retails for $14.99 (paperback) and is available through PanMacmillan Australia and wherever good books are sold. For further info, check out http://www.panmacmillan.com.au/9781743539026/
