Andy Rash brings the laughs in this humourous story of a stinkbug who can't stink.

Bud is a happy stinkbug, except when it comes to stinking contests.

He always seems to lose to champions like P. U. Bottoms, Lord Stinkington, and The Fumigator.

Every time they make smells like OUTHOUSE, GYM SOCK, and ARMPIT, poor Bud ends up smelling like FLOWERS, or FRESH-BAKED BREAD, or CANDY CANE.

Stinking just isn't Bud's THING. But what IS his thing?

With an ending as fresh as a daisy, and funnier than any funny smell, Andy Rash puts a hilarious spin on a tale of following your nose to happiness.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Are You a Horse?:

"Packed with colors and peppered with lighthearted jokes." -- Booklist

"[The] illustrations are comical and colorful, and the cartoon expressions capture the burlesque nature of the story. . . . A goofy giggle-inducing read-aloud." -- School Library Journal

Praise for Agent A to Agent Z:

* "Rash's deadpan digital cartoons slyly spoof the undercover world. . . . There's good fun here for any aspiring spy who's looking for a reason to come in from the cold." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The illustrations, india ink and Adobe Photoshop, have a bold, appealing quality... enjoy investigating this clever alphabet caper." -- The Horn Book

Praise for The Robots Are Coming:

"[A] clever tongue-in-cheek children's book debut... [Rash] has a keen sense for the pleasingly corny." -- Publishers Weekly

"The screwball gouache and ink illustrations are played for laughs... They zig and zag across the pages, affording a great sense of movement and plenty of fun." -- Booklist
