Frank absolutely adored this story. He asked questions, he studied the drawings. He'll probably be sad when we take it back to the library.

I like this book because he had a stinky smelly feet and they thought that his socks that were making his feet smelly but it was his shoes.

STINKY SMELLY FEET is a strange animal; the target audience is not clear. Based on concept - feet so stinky they clear movie theaters and kill fish - this is definitely a book for kids like my preschooler, who makes me "read" him this book almost daily.

Unfortunately I have to "read" and not read it out loud, because this book is too verbose to keep the attention of a smaller child (particularly one who'd want a picture book about bodily functions).

It makes us laugh and teaches about uncondition

This is a hilarious story about two ducks who are dating but everytime he takes off his shoes, she passes out from the smell of his feet. He tries to clean them but it is no use. He is embarrassed but doesn't know what to do about it. Then one day, after he decided there was nothing he can do about it, they smelled an odor coming from the bedroom. They went to investigate and Dolores told Douglas that it is not his feet that stink, it is his closet of smelly shoes. The closet made them BOTH pass ...more

A very silly story...but I imagine many kids would find it quite humorous. My kids liked, but didn't love, it.

A love story for all those suffering through a life with smelly feet. My kind of book. And I'm not just saying that because I've been told that I have smelly feet on occasion. This was a very entertaining book and both the illustrations and the text were equally responsible. I liked it all. This might disgust some of the younger audience that her other books attract, but I liked it a lot.

Douglas and Dolores are two ducks who are quite smitten with each other. The only problem is Douglas has horrible stinky feet that knock everyone out every time he takes his shoes off. Lovely ending because although the stinky feet problem isn't completely resolved, it doesn't matter because they two ducks love each other.

Funny illustrations.

All we really need is love, right? Well maybe love can not win over the overpowering odor of stinky smelly feet that can clear a room and knock several off their feet with their pungent odor. What are two smitten ducks to do when this foot funk threatens to come between their love???

The cover (and obviously the title) caught my attention and I brought this home from the library. It was pretty silly, but it made me smile and the art was cool.

Margie Palatini sure knows how to write stories that appeal to both kids and grownups! This one may be a 'love story' but don't let that dissuade you from reading it.

It was a lot of fun to share at school today in my class. The children enjoyed it and we did a lot of predicting with it.
