This spirited launch of a new series focuses on Judy Moody’s younger brother, Stink. . . . McDonald’s breezy narrative and likable character will keep Judy’s followers amply amused and recruit new fans.
The narrative is fun and laced with puns-from Mr. Trashmore to "newt in shining armor," and it’s peppered with black-and-white illustrations, including comics reflecting Stink’s triumphant fantasies.
A fine fare for fledgling chapter-book readers. Stink definitely measures up to his memorable sister.
Readers of Judy Moody who requested that Stink have a book of his own will not be disappointed.

A humorous look at the emotional trauma a second-grader experiences at the thought of growing smaller, rather than growing taller.
Judy Moody lovers (and their little brothers) will adore her younger brother, Stink.
With child-savvy humor and energy, McDonald explores Stink’s frustrations with being ‘the shortest second-grader in Class 2-D. Probably the shortest human being the in whole word, including Alaska and Hawaii.’
Hilarious…Set them loose on the rest of the series, and ZOOM, they’re reading and loving it!
