Animal Torture is a Big NO

A cat is tortured in the first 3 minutes of the book. And this is meant for middle schoolers???

My kid loves it but I hate it

Not a fan of the story and the gross bits. My kid loves Goosebumps and I mistakenly thought this would be similar. Even though I'm an 80's kid I was not terribly familiar with the Garbage Pail Kids, I wish it would have stayed that way.

Fantastic full cast performance of a gross out good time story. Stine must’ve loved writing this and it shows!

Kid Approved

I listened to this book with my ten year old nephew. He really enjoyed it. He will be telling everyone he knows about this book for the next few months.

Animal abuse. That's exactly what kids need. Shame



narrator is fine. could always be better though. The book is just disgusting and animal abuse is never ever okay.

Not bad

Not sure if it is the case or the one that is not the same thing as a whole bunch of people who are in a relationship or a relationship with a relationship or not

My opinion on welcome to smellvile

I liked how there was a swap through characters and it was funny but I think it could use a bit more Cranky Franky because he was my favourite character. Overall it was really good and I enjoyed it Well Done!

Wow 😀😀

I got this book thinking it was going to be another R.L.STINE book and then I found it was a comedy. Even though it wasn’t what I originally expected I still loved it. I recommend to all comedy fans😀😀😀

Worth its weight in gold

This is a rare piece of literature, one which is extremely hard to come by. This book kept me laughing for hours, and honestly, this is one of the best books I’ve ever read. It came as a surprise, as R.L Stine usually writes horror and not comedy. Absolute treasure. A must if you’re 12-17 years old. Don’t judge this book by its cover😆
