"At the top of the hill, standing all on his own
Is a curious creature a long way from home..."

Carefully crafted in such a way as to encourage little ones to join in with its bouncing rhyme, ‘The Smellyphant’ is an endearing tale about Samson, a whiffy wee chap, whose only wish is to find some friends.

There’s just one thing standing in his way...

... and unfortunately, a bath is out of the question!

Read some of the glowing reviews of one of Amazon's "Top-25 Most Read" children's books on Kindle...

“I read it to my husband as he was cooking dinner for us and we giggled the whole time. The story is told in a most magnificent Seuss style.
The artwork is astounding! I bought as a gift for one of the grands for Christmas. I can't wait to read it to them! Gavin is a superb bard.” Susette Williams, USA

"Delightful book with just beautiful storyline. The artwork on this book is amazing!" Grace Walker, UK

"Great illustrated book with a lovely story. The repeated refrains were quickly spotted by my group of 3/4 year olds at Nursery and added to the excitement . I'm sure it will become a favourite story very quickly." Carole Bielby, UK

“Rich imagination, a terrific sense of humor, and a sensitive side for folks who are different and feeling outside of the norm are all present in this terrific new book.” Grady Harp, USA

“The author has created a book that has a beautifully illustrated story with poetry that is sweet and rhythmic. The underlying theme of being different and making a meaningful contribution in society, even in the face of rejection, is a valuable lesson to both kids and adults. It teaches the importance of not judging others and understanding the value within us all.” Adrian Tuitt, Trinidad & Tobago
