PRODUCT: The Smelly Book Company - The Adventures of Scratch, Sniff & Mr Smith: Mr Smith Invents a Robot
The Smelly Book Company - Scratch & Sniff

DESCRIPTION: A 24-page book (by Shibani Mohindra & Sue Sansom) about the adventures of Mr Smith, complete with 'smell and tell' features throughout the book, plus a set of scratch & sniff stickers. These fragrances are not suitable for children under 2 years or those with known allergies. This is one in a series - other books in 'The Adventures of Scratch, Sniff & Mr Smith' range are:


  • The Case of the Missing Garlic
  • The Search for Stinky Pond
  • The Superwitch Contest


GOOD POINTS: This is a wonderfully unique book which will take you on a whole new sensory experience! It is one in a series of stories about Mr Smith, and this particular story focuses on Mr Smith's surprise invention for Scratch the cat's birthday - a dog robot called Sniff!

The book has good quality thick pages, with lovely use of colourful illustrations throughout to capture your child's imagination.

The great feature of the book are the special integrated scratch & sniff pictures, which really help your child to become part of the story and make the reading experience fun as well as educational. There are four different 'smell and tell' pages in all, each with realistic fragrances for your child to try out that will last long after the book is closed! Furthermore, the book comes with a bonus set of sixteen scratch & sniff stickers (based on the ones in the story) for your child to share with their friends.

In our opinion, this is a fantastic, innovative book based on a classic idea, and is an ideal way to allow your child to explore a variety of sensory experiences while at the same time learning to read and to associate smells with objects.

BAD POINTS: None that we can find, other than the pages will start to lose their 'scratch & sniff' properties over time.
