Stinky Finger: Stinky Finger's House of Fun Synopsis

The world is not as we know it the aliens have come down and taken all the grown-ups away, and left Blue Soup to run everything. Stinky Finger and Icky Bats wander around doing exactly as they please, like all the other children. Along with Bryan Brain, they head off to Uncle Nero's House of Fun. Uncle Neros head is still living in the mailbox outside. Before it goes off into ultra-slumber, it asks Stinky to guard the house. So the three great mates go in and explore: the Time Travel Garage, the Outer Space Garden, the Attic of Horrors, the Living Living Room ... Then a huge explosion ... they're being besieged by an army of huge pigs who want to make people pies! In order to defeat them, they'll have to make the most of the house's surreal and limitless insides ...

Stinky Finger: Stinky Finger's House of Fun Press Reviews

A hilarious, brilliant and revolting story that'll keep you smiling all summer. * Cartoon Network Mag * It's original and witty, full of amusing characterisation - a funny adventure story which credits its readers with intelligence. * BfK * The Deadly Secret of Dorothy W.: 'The pace does not flag ... deals with writing stories and children's authors in a slyly humorous way. This gives the book an original slant.' * Narinder Dhami, Writing Magazine * Guaranteed to appeal to a messy child who likes tales of disorder and chaos. * Bookfest * Brilliant. Hilarious * Bournemouth Echo * A weird and wacky story that bubbles with energy * Junior * A weird and wacky story that bubbles with energy and is given a gothic twist with Roberts' scratchy illustrations. * Junior * There is lots more to chuckle over in this racy, inventive tale of three mates besieged by pigs baying for people pie , not least Stinky's revolting personal hygiene, or lack thereof. * TES Teacher * Zany and disgusting humour, a real boy's books that will attract even the most reluctant reader * Family Interest *
