Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Astrophysics facts combine with everyday second-grade school experiences in this lively chapter book in the Stink series. Shocked to hear the scientific fact that Pluto has been declared too small to be a planet, Stink stands up to both grown-up scientists and other kids when he starts a campaign to let Pluto back into the solar system. He even makes bumper stickers that read “Honk if you love Pluto.” The funny words (“double freaky-deaky”) and silly scenarios, illustrated in Reynolds’ wry, informative black-and-white drawings, make for a fast read about the triumph of the little guy and the wonders of the universe. Grades 2-4. --Hazel Rochman

More About the Author

10 THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT ME

10. The first book I ever wrote was about a hermit crab, inspired by a pet I once owned.

9. My favorite color is purple.

8. I love to read mysteries. When I was Judy's age, I read all 56 classic Nancy Drew books . . . in order! Jeepers!

7. I used to collect scabs so I could examine them under the microscope that I got for my 8th birthday.

6. My four sisters and I often made up our own language, which included the words "Hoidi Boidi", "oogey", "retzel crummypuss" and "poony-poony".

5. My favorite TV show is JEOPARDY!

4. To research my Sisters Club book, THE RULE OF THREE, I toured San Francisco in search of the ultimate cupcake. The winner: Sleepless in San Francisco. Think chocolate + coffee.

3. When I was a kid, I fell down a hill from chasing the ice-cream truck and had to get stitches.

2. When I was a librarian, I used to tell stories in sign language. That's how I got the expression "same-same" for Judy.

1. I share a birthday (February 28) with a famous princess, race car driver and gangster, a Rolling Stone, a French tightrope walker, and a winning racehorse named Smarty Jones.

I heard him laughing A LOT while he was reading it.
NM Mom
The story line is fun to follow, and, along the way, the author slips in lots and lots of facts about the solar system.
KatPur
I bought this series of books for my granddaughter and she loves them.

My son is a HUGE Stink Fan. This is book 5 in the series about Judy Moody's brother, Stink. He has been waiting a long time for the next book to come out. It has been so long, that these books are below his reading level. He is 1/2 way through 3rd grade right now, and he finished this book in about an hour (or less). He still really enjoyed it, though. I heard him laughing A LOT while he was reading it. I recommend these books, to any child who enjoys funny, realistic fiction -but especially for boys who are reluctant readers, in 1st-2nd grade.

When your 8 year old ADD boy wakes up at 6am just to finish reading a book, you know it's a good one. He loves Stink & he loved this book too. He's read it twice now.

Format: Hardcover
When Stink Moody begins preparing for his science test the next day, he realizes he has to stuff his brain with facts about all the planets in the solar system. Stink only knows about Saturn, so he decides to get help from big sister Judy Moody. Of course, he's hoping Judy is in a good mood so she'll actually be helpful.

Judy is busy plumbing her artistic talents by creating a masterpiece out of Already-Been-Chewed gum. At first she is reluctant to help her little brother study, but Stink manages to butter her up with some flattering words about her high intelligence. The deciding factor, though, is that Stink gives Judy permission to boss him around (everyone knows how much Judy enjoys that).

Right away, Judy assists Stink by teaching him how to remember the names of all the planets. Of course, he is puzzled at first when she blurts out, "My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas." When Judy explains that the first letter of each word represents a planet, Stink is awed by his sister's inventiveness.

However, the next day's test results are a huge disappointment to the budding planet scholar. He learns that the Pizza in Judy's memory sentence is a problem. "P" may stand for "Pluto," but Pluto is no longer a planet, having been demoted by "the President of Outer Space" (at least according to Stink's version of the events). Stink is more disappointed than might be expected about Pluto's downgrading. He adores Pluto...and he relates to the smallest used-to-be-planet in the solar system. After all, Stink is the smallest kid in his class. Pluto is his second-favorite planet (he is loyal to Saturn), and he begins wondering what he can do to help this underdog ex-planet.

My 7 yr old loves the Stink books. He will happily read these books on his own and gobbles them up.
