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.
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. Lovereading comment: 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.
