Publisher Summary

Elliot wakes up one morning to the most terrible smell. But what could it be? Find out in this gentle introduction to hygiene that’s stinkin’ adorable! One morning, Elliot wakes up and smells something awful. Is it the trash? No… The dog? No… Dad? His sister? The baby? Grandma’s famous gerfartzenschanffel? No, no, no, and no! Elliot searches high and low for the something that smells, but he just can’t find it, and it’s driving him and his nostrils crazy. Almost as bad, now his mother wants him to take a bath, which means taking off his super cool skeleton costume that he’s been wearing since Halloween! The funny thing is, after Elliot finishes his bath and Mom puts his costume in the wash, something doesn’t smell anymore…

Who Wrote Something Smells!

Blake Liliane Hellman

Blessed, or perhaps cursed, with an extraordinary sense of smell, Blake Liliane Hellman has always enjoyed sniffing out a mystery. Whether that means discerning leather from pleather or which coworker had garlic for lunch, her nose is on the case! She lives with her nice-smelling family and a rather stinky cat in Seattle, Washington. Something Smells! is her first picture book.
