The book No More Stinkbugs is about a little spider who stinks and gets messed with and made fun of by his brothers and sisters. The little spider can't take anymore of the tormenting so he runs away from home. along his journey he runs into several farm animals who all try and help him but can't bare the smell of him. The little spider is so sad and depressed until he meets a young pig who doesn't care about his smell because he smells to. The young spiders mother is worried sick so she seeks out to look for him. After she finally finds him and gets him to come back home it turns out the reason he stunk so bad was because of the candied stinkbugs his grandmother accidentally slipped into the batch.

My opinion of this story is that it was really good and kept my attention the whole time. I thought it was pretty funny how the grandmother swore that she didn't candy any stinkbugs but in the end that's what the problem was with the little spiders smell.

I think this story could benefit someone who is bullied or picked on by other people. It could show them that no matter what everyone else thinks there's someone out there who will accept you for who you really are. It could teach them that not everybody will judge you by the way you smell or the way you dress or look.

I rate this book four stars.

This book is about a young spider named Arnold, who is teased and shunned away from his family because he a big smelly problem. Arnold runs away knowing the consequence of adventuring out into the vast world on his own because of his family. He meets a new friend who solves his problem and returns to his family with this particular friend he met along the way.

Reading this book mad me feel sad because he was made fun of by his own family yet it keep me wanting to read more because he was journeying out on an adventure on his own knowing of the dangers that he will encounter in this big new world.The biggest thing I learned from reading this is friendship. No matter what you look like, how you act or even what you do, a friend will accept for who you are.

The reason I gave this book five stars is that it is a great book for kids who are maturing and growing up and looking for a new challenge. This book will give them a sense of accomplishment when they finish a chapter. This book will also help them develop a sense of imagination because there are very few pictures in the book. This book also teaches children about the importance of hygiene in a very safe way without discriminating kids who do stink.

No More Stink Bugs is about a spider that accidentally eats a candied stink bug that his grandmother spider made, and when doing this he develops this potent smell. The smell causes him to be singled out and he is then forced to move from place to place until he finds someone that can tolerate the smell. He finds a couple new friends on the way and finally gets the smell off of him and his lost grandfather. Then with a little help from his new friends, he and his grandfather are reunited with his parents. I liked reading the book because it seemed innocent and joyful. The story seems to be directed towards younger kids but I still was entertained wile ready it.

The benefits to reading this story is, it helps younger kids with problem solving and dealing with sibling rivalry. Also it shows children that even though we have problems sometimes, we can still depend on friends to help us out.

No More Stink Bugs is about the youngest spider sibling that gets bullied by his older siblings because he is stinky. The spider runs away from home and meets a lot of new animals. Finally the spider meets a friend that helps him overcome his insecurities.
This book is great for children that are experiencing bullying. Bullying effects more kids than people realize. Even "popular kids" undergo bullying by their peers. This is a great book for kids that are ending elementary school and starting to lengthen their reading capabilities. I strongly suggest that parents offer this book for their children even if they aren't being bullied, because it could possibly show them the other side of the situation a prevent bullying on other kids.

Arnold is a baby spider who is a week old. When his Grandma comes for a visit she brings special treats for her grandchildren. Through her visit it is discovered that Arnold has a stink problem and Arnold runs away.

This short story takes us through the adventures of Arnold as he trumps through a strange new land. A.K.A. the farm. I like how Arnold goes through and finds many new and sometimes, scary things. He is faced with life threatening obstacles and must make the right decisions to survive and find a new family.

I would recommend this to any young reader who has the want to read something a little bit longer than beginner but not quite as long as a tween's chapter book. It has an encouraging number of chapters that can give the child a sense of success upon completion.

No More Stinkbugs is about a young spider named Arnold, who runs away from his family because he gets shunned due to his stinky problem, after venturing off, Arnold finds a new friend which happens to be a pig. After being gone for a lengthy amount of time, Arnolds mother eventually reunites back with him and returns him back to the family.

Although this book is somewhat sad, it teaches children valuable life lessons about hygiene and how adventurous one can be. I liked this book because it requires the user to use their own imagination because there are not many pictures within the story, and it causes you to paint your own picture of what is happening. I would recommend this book to young readers who are trying to expand their vocabulary as it is quite lengthy for a younger reader. The great thing about this book is that it is a chapter book, and it will give young readers a great satisfaction knowing they completed all the chapters when they finished. I rated this book a five because I enjoyed the book and it had a good flow, and I feel that it teaches a big lesson at a young age.
