STINK AND THE INCREDIBLE SUPER-GALACTIC JAWBREAKER is the second story centered on Judy Moody's younger brother Stink.

Stink Moody buys a huge jawbreaker at the candy store and sucks on it until his tongue is as blue as a skink. When the jawbreaker doesn't break his jaw, he writes a letter of complaint to the candy company. Much to his surprise, he receives a 10-pound box of jawbreakers in return. Stink is so excited that he begins a letter-writing campaign to see if he can get more free stuff.

But Stink is so preoccupied with letter writing that he hardly notices that his best friend, Webster, is mad at him. It takes Stink a while to figure out why Webster is so angry. Could it have something to do with the crumpled envelope he finds? Will he be able to patch things up with his friend? It will take a little creativity.

Megan McDonald is the author of the popular Judy Moody series as well as STINK: The Incredible Shrinking Kid. She got the idea for Stink's latest adventure by watching two kids in the candy section of the grocery store. They were in awe of giant, confetti-flecked jawbreakers. McDonald knew Stink would want one.

STINK AND THE INCREDIBLE SUPER-GALACTIC JAWBREAKER is a chapter book that young kids can really sink their teeth into. As an added bonus, the author has scattered idioms throughout the book. And at the end of the story is a list of idioms that the reader can hunt for.

This is just what a kid would do if he figured out that complaining would get him free stuff! His parents are smart enough to control the situation, and Stink learns a good lesson. My grandson loved it. Great bedtime reading!

I teach 1st grade in a town very near where the author lives. This is a fabulous read aloud. My class loves Stink and listening to his adventures. It is an extra bonus that the candy store that is described in the book can be recognized as our own local candy store! I start to read the Stink books after Winter Break. My class is now an expert on President James Madison thanks to the first Stink book. This book also allowed me to introduce idioms in a fun way. Next year, I will use this story as an intro to my letter writing unit. I highly recommend these books, as well as the Judy Moody books. My students can't get enough of them and are always fighting over the titles when we visit the library. These books have really sparked the "reading bug" in my class. My dream is to get Megan McDonald to visit our school.

I am an 8 year old girl. This is a book about a boy named Stink. He has blond hair. He earned $5. He went to a candy store. He bought a jawbreaker. It looked tasty. But it didn't break his jaw! So he complained to the company. So he got 2,082 jawbreakers for free. My favorite part was when he got free jawbreakers.
I like it because it's interesting. Every page is a surprise. I wish it was longer. I recommend it because it's a crowd-pleaser. I think everyone will like it. It's a really awesome book.

My son loves the Stink series and was not that inspired by many other books which seemed to constantly fall into the too easy, too hard, or uninteresting (from his perspective) categories. He really enjoys Stink's books and can relate to the story. He can easily read and comprehend I which is really expanding his confidence to read. Anyways, great series for early chapter readers, I highly recommend it.

Our 5 year old doesn't read this on his own yet, but the pictures are frequent enough, and the storyline engaging enough that he loves these "Stink"-y books. We buy them as fast as they come out. While the character is a few years older than our son, the writing is at a level that he clearly loves and understands. Each book teaches a lesson as well. Clean, fun, and simple entertainment in a book value.

Full of fun and adventure for any young boy.
My grandsons enjoyed the characters and we read a chapter each night.
There are subtle lessons to be learned in this story too.
The teasing between brother and sister is very realistic!
The outlandish exaggeration by Stink is comical and appreciated by his readers.

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!
