The Lovereading4Kids comment
Mr Smith Invents a Robot is a beautifully illustrated 'smell and tell' book, containing smells to encourage young and reluctant readers to enjoy the reading experience. Big, bold, colourful imagery fills every page and coupled with the great storyline and different smells emanating from every page - lavender and smelly shoes to name just two - makes this a wonderfully unique book.
Apart from the laugh-out-loud really smelly book that you get when you buy this book, you'll find it also comes with 16 super smelly stickers. Great for kids to give to all their friends so they can all be just as smelly as each other!
Further adventures include Scratch, Sniff and Mr Smith: The Case of the Missing Garlic, which is due out this summer and further 'smelly' titles will follow.
A message from The Smelly Book Company:
'We make smelly books. We use smells in the books to encourage children to read with enjoyment. The sense of smell is our oldest sense, but one that has been overtaken by other senses. Our books therefore bring a whole new dimension to the reading experience by engaging an unused sense, and creating excitement around the activity of reading. Oh and we forgot to mention, our stories are good too.'
The Smelly Book Company donates a percentage of its profits to charity. Details of their donations can be found on their website.

About the characters in this book:
Mr Smith: He is very clever man who is always inventing very clever things. He lives somewhere in the middle of nowhere and you can always recognise him because he wears the most colourful smelly shirts.
Scratch: He is a purrrfectly purple cat because he eats all the lavender in the garden...which also explains why he smells sweet. Scratch is a bit naughty and always getting up to things.
Sniff: He’s a robot that Mr Smith made from recycled material. Sniff can see, talk, hear and even ...smell. Mr Smith made Sniff as a friend for Scratch’s birthday.
They will become good friends.
The book is A4 in size and all smells conform to EN71 standard. This is Book 1 of the new Scratch Sniff & Mr Smith range.
