Stinker

By David Zeltser
Illustrated by Julia Patton

Stinker is a puppy stuck in the pound. He's playful and loving and wants more than anything to be adopted.

Unfortunately, little Stinker is always making big smells. As family after family return the ever-patient pooch back to the shelter, even he begins to lose hope. That is, until Stinker meets a snarky tomcat who can wriggle his way out of any situation. Together they stage a great escape in order to find just the right home, where Stinker will be loved in spite of his smells.

  • Kids love jokes about farting, as evidenced by the popularity of Walter the Farting Dog.
  • Has the appeal of the underdog main character
  • Meta narrative in which characters address the audience, akin to Mo Willems's books
