I Stink!

I Stink!

by Kate McMullan Illustrated by Jim McMullan

"Know what I do at night while you're asleep? Eat your trash, that's what! See those bags? I smell breakfast!"

With ten wide tires, one really big appetite, and an even bigger smell, this truck's got it all. His job? Eating your garbage and loving every stinky second of it!

And you thought nighttime was just for sleeping.

Named a best children's book of the year by "Publishers Weekly" and "Parenting" magazine, this book follows a night in the life of a cool garbage truck with a bad attitude as he makes the rounds and picks up an A-to-Z list of stinky garbage.
