Alex Sparrow and the Really Big Stink


By Jennifer Killick | Published May 2017

First in the hilarious Alex Sparrow series 

Alex Sparrow is a super-agent in training. He is also a human lie-detector. Working with Jess, who can communicate with animals, they must find out why their friends – and enemies – are all changing into polite and well-behaved pupils. And exactly who is behind it all.

Alex Sparrow and the Really Big Stink is a funny, mid-grade novel full of farts, jokes and superhero references. Oh, and a rather clever goldfish called Bob. In a world where kids’ flaws and peculiarities are being erased out of existence, Alex and Jess must rely on what makes them different to save the day.

Read Alex Sparrow and the Furry Fury and Alex Sparrow and the Zumbie Apocalypse.
