Overview

Earl Cutter wishes he could beat his best friend, Damian Stillwell, at something—anything. Whether they're playing video games or racing their bikes, Damian always wins. The two boys' friendship is put to the test when they both enter the Feetfirst factory's Stinky Sneakers Contest. While Earl tries to work up a sweat and stink up his shoes the natural way, Damian has other plans: He'll outsmart and outsmell everyone in the contest (including Earl) by cheating to win. Will the Stinky Sneakers contest spell the end of Earl and Damian's friendship? (Ages 6 and up)

Editorial Reviews

Jim Jeske
Damian and Earl are locked in desperate competition for a 10-year supply of Jaguar Jetstreams, the newest high-status sneaker produced by the Feetfirst shoe factory. All they have to do is win Feetfirst's Stinky Sneakers contest. Damian, an only child whose rich but absent father rewards him with gifts for winning contests, packs his sneakers with limburger cheese and liverwurst to work up a noxious stench. Earl, not as wealthy and from a large family, relies on plain old-fashioned perspiration and abstention from foot washing to build up his fungal reek. Clearly, Damian is cheating, as he does in every competition he undertakes. Resentful Earl knows cheaters never prosper, but is the prize so tempting that his friendship with Damian must splinter? Peters presents a funny book with an enticingly disgusting premise that's a sure lure for the age group. Smith's cartoonlike drawings underscore the fun.

They probably generate more words per day than she does, but who can read cat gibberish?
