Review

Mr Stink, the filthy old tramp who is a permanent resident of a particular bench in the park, certainly lives up to his name.

However, his overwhelmingly awful whiff doesn't stop Chloe making friends with him and his dog and when it looks as though they may be run out of town she knows she has to do something fast and hides them in the garden shed.

As Chloe's family is quietly falling apart, Mr Stink unwittingly becomes the source of their redemption after a surprise TV appearance on Question Time.

Irreverant and charming, this is a hilarious and surprisingly touching story about secrets, love and life.
