ABOUT THE BOOK

Underwear has never been so much fun to wear!

It’s story time at the Hickleberry Elementary School Library with Stinky the stuffed skunk!

You’ve probably heard of the boy who cried wolf, but do you know what happened after no one believed him? Well, according to Stinky, the boy moves away to The Big City where he gets a job crying wolf for The William D. Wolfe Company, Makers Of All Sorts Of Fine And Fancy Stuff.

But when the boy gets bored again, he decides to use his talents to cry UNDERPANTS instead. When the Queen hears his cries, she takes great offense—how dare he???—and suddenly, The Big City is sent into total chaos! Will the boy be able to save the day before it all gets too smelly?

This first stinky story is the start of the first-ever chapter book series from beloved New York Times bestselling authors Chris and J.J. Grabenstein.

Filled with page after page of hilarious illustrations by acclaimed artist Alex Patrick. Stinky’s Stories is the perfect series for young reluctant and emergent readers—or any kid who just loves to laugh.
