A Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book
Stinky is a monster who loves pickles and possums but is terrified of people. When a new kid enters his swamp, this adorable little monster comes up with all sorts of crazy plans to scare him away. But Stinky quickly learns to conquer his fear, as he realizes that bats, rats, and toads aren’t the only friends you can find in the swamp.
This hilarious and heart-warming story by ferociously talented newcomer Eleanor Davis proves that even monsters can make new friends…warts and all!
Eleanor Davis grew up in Tucson, Arizona. Instead of going out in the hot sun to play and make friends, she stayed alone in her room, drawing. Now she’s widely praised as one of the coolest new artists on the comics scene. Eleanor started Stinky, her first published book, while still a student at Savannah College of Art and Design. She currently lives in Athens, Georgia, with her husband (who is also a cartoonist) and three cats (who are not).
