Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3–Stink Moody, Judy's little brother, is sure he can win the Super-Stinky Sneaker Contest because he has such a supersensitive nose. When his class goes to the Gross-Me-Out exhibit at the science museum, the second grader is able to identify every smell in the Everybody Stinks exhibit, from bad breath to B.O. This ability really impresses his classmates. He becomes Mr. Nose-it-all, and he hopes one day to smell a corpse flower, which has the worst odor in the entire world. When cancellation of the contest is threatened because one of the judges is sick, Stink's teacher comes up with a unique way to save the day, but it would mean that Stink would have to give up becoming a contestant. Stink is a delightful protagonist, comical and bright, and McDonald cleverly imparts information on smells. The characters ring true. The early chapter-book format is inviting, with lots of white space, occasional illustrations, and a vocabulary that stretches but doesn't strain young readers. A funny book worthy of being added to almost any collection.–Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR

From Booklist

From the class trip to the science museum's "Gross-Me-Out" exhibit to experiments with toilet water to a retelling of how, years before, baby Stink's dirty diaper inspired his name, this book rewards readers drawn by the word Stink in the title. After working to create the vilest entry in a smelly sneaker contest, Stink proves his worth as a substitute judge. Some readers will find that the recurring references to stench grow tiresome, but others will enjoy watching Stink take his first steps toward his chosen career: professional smeller. Appealing artwork adds to this humorous chapter book's, uh, charm. Carolyn Phelan

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.

My sons (8 and 11) both enjoyed this book quite a bit, so I read it myself. At first, I was put off by the awkwardly edited sentences, but as the book went on I realized that the story was pretty good, the characters inviting, and the computer-drawn pictures lively.

Due to the choppiness of the sentences I won't read this aloud to my students in 2nd grade, but I will certainly add it to my class library and recommend it to some less-advanced readers who are eager to tackle a chapter book.

Stink is as happy as a pig in slop. He and his friends, Webster and Sophie, are on a class field trip at the science museum --- and the exhibit is called "Gross-Me-Out: The Wonderful World of Smelly Stuff." Stink starts with the giant nose, where he gets to gawk at enormous nose hairs and learn how boogers are made. He loves it!

But when Stink's teacher, Mrs. D., dares him to experience the "Everybody Stinks" exhibit, he has to summon up his courage. After all, no one else will even go near it. One whiff of the B.O. scent almost does him in, but he recovers long enough to sniff more smelly odors, including dirt, rotten eggs, skunk scent and perfume. It appears that Stink has a real talent for smelling. He can smell better than anyone else in his class. In addition, he learns tons of smelly facts.

At lunch, the kids read flyers about a stinky sneaker contest the museum is putting on. Naturally, Stink must enter. Others are interested as well, so he'll have plenty of competition.

At home, Stink demonstrates The Nose and even impresses his big sister, Judy Moody. Stink is confident that his Nose will make him famous someday. When he researches the science of smelling, he finds information about the corpse flower, the world's stinkiest blossom, rumored to smell worse than outhouses, dead elephants and rotten fish.

Stink is inspired to create some terribly stinky perfume and sets up a Franken-stink lab. He and Sophie work up a recipe (including toilet water, dead-flower water, pickle juice and more), but he's distracted when Sophie tells him she's planning to compete in the stinky sneaker contest. Stink is determined to win.

He's positive that his reeking old sneakers have a great chance to win the competition.

This is the third in Megan McDonald's series of book about Stink Moody, Judy Moody's irritating little brother. In this book, Stink finds out something new about himself - he really does like stinks! But, is there a career out there for a super-smeller like him? You might be surprised!

This is a very funny book. My eight-year-old daughter has become something of a Stink Moody fan, and when I cracked the book open myself I could easily see why. It's got a nice off-beat, goofy humor that is sure to please the young reader, and the illustration work is just perfect for the story. I also liked the comics that were apparently drawn by Stink himself.

My young reader and I both liked this book and both highly recommend it!

My son is 8 and loves this series....personally, I don't like reading them, but they aren't for me. Thankfully he does well enough with these he reads them to himself.

He is 8 years old and definitely has his own opinions on what he wants to read (not any of the hundreds of books his older brother liked...those, like oh, say 35 or so Magic Treehouse books, are dusty on the book shelf...). He likes Captain Underpants, the A to Z Mysteries, Diary of a Wimpy Kid and now the Stink books. He did read some Horrible Harry ones too, but he seems to have moved on from there.

His second grade teacher says he reads a grade ahead...and for what it's worth I checked the 'lexile' on this one and it's 610 for those who track that (as a quick peek I noticed the Animorphs, the Boxcar Children, Magic Treehouse and Encyclopedia Brown are in the same general lexile range). In any case, he does love these books and read this one in one sitting on a Saturday afternoon of his own volition. I looked over and there he was, reading away. Definitely a book for the 'win' column!

Format: Paperback
The first time my son asked if he could keep reading! My second grader is not the most enthusiastic reader, and up until this point, would only read non-fiction books about snakes and sports. Not entirely a bad thing, but I felt it was also important that he get to know fiction and start reading some chapter books that would encourage reading comprehension. I was so thankful to find Stink! The entire series is great, but "Stinky Sneakers" is especially entertaining. These books are very sweet and focus on friendships and family relationships. The Stink books provide a very gentle start into chapter books with funny illustrations every few pages, larger print and good spacing. After reading all four, my son is ready to move on to more challenging books. We are into Flat Stanley now - another great series, just a step up in difficulty.

This is a great book. You should try it. Stink and his class go on a field trip to a smelly museum. He is a very good smeller. When he gets home his sister, Judy, tests him to see if he is a good smeller. Someone in Stink's class says that Stink is going to smell B.O. from the bottles in the museum. All you have to do is put your nose down and smell. I think it is a really good book.
