Top 10 stinky characters in children's fiction

Pamela Butchart is the author of Yikes, Stinkysaurus, illustrated by Sam Lloyd.

At the Guardian she tagged ten top stinky characters in children's fiction, including:
The Twits by Roald Dahl

"How often do all these hairy-faced men wash their faces? Is it only once a week, like us, on Sunday nights?"

The Twits have to be the ugliest, meanest, most stinky characters ever! I used to read this book over and over as a child; it was definitely one of my favourites. In fact, I think I'll read it again today.
Read about another entry on the list.

The Twits made Joanna Nadin's list of ten top laugh-out-loud reads for 5-8-year-olds.
