This book is so funny if you enjoy some G rated bathroom humor, which my kids do. They also like books with lots of things to spot on each page. Rhyming words and a penguin? Can’t lose.

There's something universal (get it? Because space!) about farting. It elicits giggles and joy from children and children at heart. Add farting to a space adventure? It's pure gold. The rhymes and Penguin's attempts to prove the terrible smell comes from one of the other animals is exactly the silliness I want to share during a story time. Plus, the pull out tabs give us extra little nuggets of fun. Stink in Space is a BLAST!

Stink in Space is a really silly book about animals going to space, and someone keeps stinking up the ship!! I really liked the pull tabs. It wasn't too gross and the illustrations were fun

This is a great book to get children laughing. A cheeky story about a smelly rocket. The illustrations are bold and colourful. The book is written in rhyme which adds rhythm to the story.

My kids and I loved this book. We laughed so much and the jokes were funny for both kids and parents. A sign of a good book is re reading and we have re read this book at least 7 times now and definitely more on the way. Enjoy this book and have fun.

Animals are headed to space but right before take off one them let's one rip. Everyone thinks it's the penguin but the penguin keeps pointing the finger to stinky socks or a lunch.

My kids love books with fart jokes. Not all parents might like it but we found it to be hilarious. The illustrations are bright and the animals are pretty funny.

I think this will make a great board book with the interactive slide out pages.

Thank you to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing for this advanced reader copy. My review is voluntarily my own.

I will be posting my review to my Instagram page the.littlest.bookworm and retail sites on or close to publication.

My boys and I really enjoyed Stink In Space! They're 3 and 5 and find all things smelly hilarious. They're also really into space so the actual plot was an added bonus. The illustrations were really fun too.

This would be the perfect book for early readers and I don't believe it would be too gross for the classroom.

Thank you to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group – Frances Lincoln Children's Books for allowing me to be an early reader. All opinions are my own.

This is a fun, rhyming, interactive board book that kids will love. Kids love potty humour and find smelly jokes hilarious.

A diverse group of animals blast off in their rocket ship and off they soar into space. But wait... what is that stinky smell? Whew!!!! The animals start tossing smelly items out the garbage shoot and then it finally becomes more and more clear who is responsible for the yucky overwhelming odour.

This fun board book is sturdy and includes pull-out sliders. How fun is that? You will never guess who the mysterious stinky culprit is.

The entertaining illustrations are vibrant and engage kids ( and adults ) from beginning to the end of the tale. The animals portrayed are super adorable and expressive which I love. Who doesn't need a good giggle together? I highly recommend "Stink in Space."

The kids loved this book. It made them laugh and they really liked the pictures. They were engrossed all of the way through. The different characters were fun and well thought out.
They particularly liked the gorilla with the false teeth! Thank you for the advanced copy.

I love lift the flap and pull books and this one was great! The interactive parts of this book will keep kids entertained just as much as the funny storyline and bright illustrations.

My three year old thought this book was absolutely hilarious! He is of course at that age where he thinks farts are funny. The illustrations are fun and the story engaging!

This book was hilarious!
Animals go into space but there's a stink that won't go away. Everyone accuses penguin but the others each have their stink too. @ movable board book is sure to keep littler kids giggling through the whole read.

My son thinks tooting is the funniest thing ever on this planet so this was a super fun book for us to read together. All of the jokes in the book made us giggle together and we were wondering who the stinky culprit was the whole time!
I love how the colors contrasted in the book and it held my kid’s attention really well!
