Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stink is awesome! Stink Moody is at it again. He has money to spend and to the candy store he goes. He buys a giant Jawbreaker, and spends a long time finishing it all the way down. But he is disappointed it did not live up to his expectations so he writes the candy company a letter. And to his surprise they send him a giant box of candy, jawbreakers, gum and more. So he starts writing letters to all kinds of places like a chocolate bar company, the city works and more, and soon the free stuff starts piling in. But what is a boy in grade 2 supposed to do with all this stuff? Stink is so excited about his boxes of free stuff that he slips an envelope to the bottom of the pile where it gets lost in all his excitement. The chapters are: Kid in a Candy Store Finger-Lickin' Good A Leopard Can't Change Its Spots When It Rains, It Pours Don't Let the Bedbugs Bite Mad As a Hornet Double Trouble Feel Like a Heel A Leopard Can Change Its Spots Sometimes what we do, or even what we do not do, can cause real consequences in our lives, our families and with our friendships. Stink realizes he has made a giant mistake and with the help of his dad and teacher hopes to be able to make things right. Read this great Stink adventure to find out if he can. This is another amazing book by Megan McDonald and Peter H Reynolds. Well worth reading!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stink rules! Not only is the book about Judy's younger brother, Stink, but it's written for the younger reader as well. The type is larger and the book is not as long as the Judy Moody books. Again, perfect for a young reader. I love Judy Moody books as the dynamic of kids is really well written. Their behavior, thoughts, the things they say, everything, is well portrayed. In my opinion, far better than Junie B Jones books which uses way more advanced language than kids would use. In this book, Stink finds himself the benefactor of some free goods after writing a letter to the company to complain. This sets off a firestorm that pits Stink against his sister, and his best friend Webster. Good lessons are learned as Stink works through his problems. A great story.

Stink soon becomes the proverbial kid in a candy store as his letter-writing campaign yields him heaps of free rewards. Illustrations.

Read from the Book

Every day, Stink ate a little more and a little more of his jawbreaker. He ate it in bed first thing in the morning before he brushed his teeth. He ate it at recess in between playing H-O-R-S-E with his super-duper best friend, Webster. He ate it on the bus and all the way home from school.He gave a lick to Mouse the cat. He gave a lick to Toady the toad. He even tried giving a lick to Jaws the Venus flytrap.Stink's jawbreaker went from super-galactic to just plain galactic. From golf-ball size to Super-Ball size."Are you still eating that thing?" asked Judy. Stink stuck out his tongue."Well, you look like a skink," said Judy. She pointed to his blue tongue.Shloop! went Stink.Stink ate his not-super-galactic jawbreaker for one whole week. He ate it when it tasted like chalk. He ate it when it tasted like grapefruit. He ate it through the fiery core to the sweet, sugary center. He ate it down to a marble. A teeny-tiny pea.Then, in one single bite, one not-jaw-breaking crunch, it was G-O-N-E, gone.Stink was down in the dumps. He moped around the house for one whole day and a night. He stomped up the stairs. He stomped down. He drew comics. Ka-POW! He did not play with Toady once. He did not do his homework. He went outside and bounced Judy's basketball 117 times."Somebody got up on the WRONG side of the bed," said Judy. "If I didn't know better, I'd think you were in a MOOD.""I can have moods too, you know." Stink kept counting. "One hundred eighteen, one hundred nineteen . . .

About the Author

MEGAN MCDONALD is the author of STINK: THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING KID, as well as the best-selling, award-winning series about Stink's older sister, Judy Moody. She says, "Not long ago, I happened upon two kids in the candy section of my local grocery store who were in rapture over the almost snowball-size jawbreakers they'd discovered in a bin. I held up one of the tiny globes, a confetti-flecked miniature world unto itself. I knew immediately that Stink would have to have one . . . so I bought one myself, for inspiration. I like to think of it as research!"

PETER H. REYNOLDS is the illustrator of Stink's series debut, as well as all the Judy Moody books. He says, "My childhood was a bit Stink-ish. I craved candy - especially chocolate - after reading CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. So much so that I wrote to the Hershey chocolate company, and they sent me a packet of information, posters, and sample cacao beans!"

Appropriate for ages: 6 - 8
