The show is based on the award winning children's book series, StinkyKids written by Britt Menzies. She's a mother that was inspired by her children, her own little stinkers. What I love about the books are the 10 diverse StinkyKids characters. Each look & act differently from each other, thus creating individual personalities that we can all relate to. These kids learn from their mistakes to make right choices & follow their motto of "always be a leader of good."
StinkyKid Britt never gets into trouble and loves making everyone happy! She's convinced her parents to take her friends Max, Hannah, Jen, Johnny and Billy to the opening of the new Mega Jumper 3000. But when Britt gets a massive wad of gum stuck in her hair, she must rely on her friends to help her get out of a sticky situation before her parents find out and cancel the trip.
My son & I thoroughly enjoyed the show. The music was entertaining as well as the characters. It gave a descriptive portrayal of how kids make bad choices & discover along the way on how to learn from those mistakes. My son walked away realizing that he is most like superhero Johnny. He went home eager to bring his book to school to share with his kindergarten class. He was very impressed with getting author Britt Menzies autograph as well.
