"But Mama, but Mama, what if I were a super smelly skunk, and I smelled so bad that my name was Stinky Face?"
A mother's unconditional love is truly tested in this warm and reassuring tale. The imaginative son turns himself into a meat-eating dinosaur, a swamp creature, and much more before being satisfied that no matter how stinky he is or how slimy of a creature he could possibly be, he is loved and nothing will change that

Award-wining author Lisa McCourt has written over thirty books for children, including the Stinky Face books. She lives with her family in Boca Raton, Florida.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1. A child tucked into bed delays going to sleep, needing reassurance of her mother's love. The youngster asks, "Would you still love me....if I were a big scary ape?" or "a super smelly skunk" or "a terrible meat-eating dinosaur," and the list continues. No matter what horrible creature is imagined, Mama says she will always love and care for her child. Warm pastel drawings sweetly illustrate the story; the imaginary creatures are appealing rather than frightening. Reminiscent of Margaret Wise Brown's The Runaway Bunny (HarperCollins, 1942) and Kady Denton's Would They Love a Lion? (Kingfisher, 1995), this is a good choice for storytime or one-on-one sharing.?Elizabeth Trotter, Scott County Public Library, Georgetown, KY
