Read full description of the books:Stinky was on the 2009 ALA Honor Book list for the Theodore Giesel Award. It is a beginning reader book presented in a graphic novel format (for the purpose of LIS 565 assignment 3, I will count this book as a graphic novel rather than an early reader). Stinky is a smelly swamp monster who believes that all human children love taking baths, "eat cake and apples", and do not like any of the gross things that Stinky loves. When a human boy, named Nick, builds a tree house in Stinky's swamp, Stinky tries to scare the boy away by grossing him out. But to Stinky's surprise Nick likes the same things that Stinky does, and in the end Stinky and Nick become friends.
Stinky is a beautiful, brightly illustrated graphic novel. Even though Stinky is a "gross" monster, he is really quite sweet. When he realizes that the hat that he had kicked into the "bottomless pit" was Nick's lucky hat, he jumps into the pit to retrieve it. I think that kids will identify with the characters of both Nick and Stinky (Stinky is a little kid monster). Stinky is one of Toon Books Level 2 readers intended for kids in the 1st and 2nd grade. The text is simple to read, and the story is both cute and funny which I think makes this book perfect for it's intended age group. I would recommend this book as an introduction to graphic novels for young children as it can familiarize children with the layout of graphic novels without being as overwhelmingly busy as some graphic novels can be.
