We introduced you to a brilliantly smelly Mr Smith and his erstwhile counterparts Scratch and Sniff in Mr Smith Invents a Robot. Now there’s a chef involved and he’s having problems with garlic and yes you’ve guessed it there are lots of smell to smell within the book. Great way to get reluctant readers reading, as many smells lie in the pages and there are some smelly stickers in the book too to give to friends or enemies for that matter!!! It really is laugh-out-loud funny. You’re in for a treat.


The Adventures of Scratch, Sniff and Mr Smith: The Case of the Missing Garlic by Shibani Mohindra
