Stinkiest! by Steve Jenkins - ADVISABLE

Jenkins, Steve  Stinkiest! 20 Smelly Animals PICTURE BOOK/NON-FICTION Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2018. $15. 9780544944787 
Twenty different animals are featured in this book about smelly animals.  Some animals smell as a defense against predators, some to mark their territory and some smell because of what they eat.  Whatever the reason, this is a fascinating look at different ways animals use their smell. 
My 8 and 9 year old sons love this series and after reading it we often have to go through the house and tell everyone all the cool facts we learned.  I love that the author breaks it down in a very simple format but provides unique facts.  The illustrations are great. 

Reviewer, C. Peterson.
