Packed with fun, humour and a heart-warming message, this touching tale provides the perfect family entertainment. Annabelle is celebrating her 10th birthday, hosted by everyone’s favourite MP candidate, Janet Crumb! Everyone is invited including you apart from Chloe’s particularly new smelly friend, Mr Stink. One perfectly normal afternoon Chloe Crumb met an incredibly smelly homeless Mr Stink and his loyal dog, the Duchess on a park bench. Chloe’s curiosity and kindness pave the way for this extraordinary and rewarding friendship that takes them to the heady heights of live television and Downing Street via a garden shed.
