Stinkerton McPoo – A Brand New Favourite Kids Book Character!

The Stinkerton McPoo children’s book collection is based on the best-selling children’s author Stephen Hodgkinson-Soto’s real dog named Fia, who is known for dropping “stink bombs” wherever she goes. 


Stephen has created a hilarious new series of kids book bundles that children of all ages will enjoy, featuring Stinkerton McPoo (the world’s stinkiest and gassiest dog)! Started as a lockdown project and never having written before, Stephen wasn’t sure what the reaction would be – but we are proud to say we have just sold our 10,000th copy!

If you’re looking for hilarious rhyming stories full of fun characters that your kids will ask for over and over again, then look no further!

Children’s Books Signed by the Author

Like many people, I found myself re-evaluating my life during lockdown. These books were born out of a need to do something different, and a desire to bring some joy into the world at a time when everything seemed so serious. 

Never having written a book before, let alone get one published – to say there was a steep learning curve would be an understatement!  It’s almost impossible for first-time authors to be picked up by established publishing companies, which is why I chose to go the self-publishing route.

 While you can find these books on Amazon, I hope you will consider buying them directly from our website which is the only place you will find the signed copies.  Your support of what has now become a family business is greatly appreciated.

For any aspiring authors out there, please feel free to send me a message and I will gladly share what I have learned over the past few months.  Most importantly, I hope you and your little ones enjoy the books.

Kids Book Bundles by a Best-Selling Children’s Author in the UK
Although I currently have a “grown-up” job that requires much of my attention, I have really enjoyed writing these special children’s book collections.

“For me, this is about creating those moments where parents, grandparents and caregivers are able to slow down and connect with the little ones in their lives.

As busy parents ourselves, we know it can be challenging to find time to be truly present with our kids. Bedtime stories were always an opportunity for us to slow down and reconnect as a family no matter what the day had been like.

It’s been amazing to hear from so many Parents, Grandparents and Caregivers that have enjoyed reading the stories together with their little ones.”

If you’re looking for the best illustrated children’s books with kids book characters everyone will love, then you must read Stinkerton McPoo!
