Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Stinky Blinky by Troy Kent is a funny story about Blinky who always has a bad smell coming from his rear. When he eats cheese or beans, it makes him go. Stinky Blinky is always worried that he might pass gas in class and all the other students will laugh at him. Once he reaches home, he makes sure he does not eat beans and cheese. Blinky's mother gives him his favorite cream filled Twinkie. The book is filled with bathroom humor and will make readers who connect with Stinky Blinky's plight chuckle.

It's a fast paced and fun read and it is laced with humor and silly moments that will put a smile on the faces of readers. The illustrations are lively and funny and give a good pace and movement to the scenes and the characters. The book is a good bedtime storybook and can also be used for read aloud sessions in classrooms and school libraries. The author manages to handle the topic tastefully instead of making it sound cheap and crass. Kids will love the humor and will be able to relate to the silliness in the story.

Lighthearted books like this are good for children to make them smile and chuckle, and also to introduce them to a different set of words which can enhance their vocabulary. Stinky Blinky's character has been portrayed well and he's adorable. I would definitely recommend this book to all young readers out there.


His face says it all. Blinky is experiencing the consequences of eating beans and most of us know what that means. Yep, a rumble, a rip and a reason to blush. This witty, humorous book will have you giggling as you turn each page. Poor Blinky tries his best to keep it under control but gasp!!....the gas does not obey. Mortified, he hurriedly darts from his classroom and races to the little boy's room where he parks himself. Yes....mmmmm....ahhhhh! He believes that this too shall pass....and it does.

When he arrives home his mom lovingly prepares him an after school snack. She suggests leftover meat, a sandwich with cheese whiz, and then remembers there is a tasty can of beans that he might like. Do you think Blinky will have another go with the legumes or pass? I think he's "bean" there done that don't you?

This book is delightful, especially the illustrations. It is written in rhyme and kids (especially boy kids) will laugh and want to share it with others and read it themselves again and again. I highly recommend this book.

It's a gas!
