Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a picture book that blends realism and fantasy, a shoeshine boy is surprised when a

piece of red silk falls from the sky. Trying to find its owner, he ventures up and down

fire escapes, back and forth across clotheslines, and into the company of the colorfully

diverse people who live in the tenement. Lively pages laid out in multiple panels, with

a few words of text in dialogue balloons, capture the exhilarating action, and foreignlanguage

phrases are translated on the endpapers. There is a cheerful side to a neighborhood

packed with people of different originsand#8212;the opportunity to make friends

across race lines, culture lines, and clotheslines!

Stinky is a monster who loves pickles and possums but is terrified of people.

About the Author

Eleanor Davis grew up in Tucson, Arizona. Instead of going out in the hot sun to play and make friends, she stayed alone in her room, drawing. She started working on Stinky, her first published childrenand#8217;s book, while still a student at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Now, only 25 years old, sheand#8217;s widely praised as one of the coolest artists on the new comics scene. She lives in Athens, Georgia, with her boyfriend (who is also a cartoonist) and three cats (who are not).
