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

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.

This was a fun book with a little learning thrown it to the mix! Stink gets a chance to share is viewpoints about the planet/not planet Pluto in a thought provoking skit in his classroom. A debate takes place and the class decides to vote on whose viewpoint is best! I loved the concept of the classroom debate, and so did my grandson. Great story with fun and learning thrown in as well.

Honk if you love Pluto!In the latest offering from Megan McDonald’s Stink series, Stink Moody and his friends take a stand in the name of science. When Stink finds out that Pluto is too small and shrimpy to be considered a planet anymore, he, kind of a shrimpy kid himself, can’t believe how unfair those scientists are.How can they possibly kick Pluto out after all these years?

Challenging the facts and their know-it-all classmate rotten Riley Rottenberger, Stink and company stage playground protests and write their own play, concluding with a classroom debate that pits acceptance against science.

Peter H. Reynolds’s illustrations are whimsical and eye catching, and Stink proves to be a winning and funny character. Each chapter is peppered with fun facts about the different planets that make up our solar system, including the very contemporary discovery that Pluto is actually a dwarf planet.Stink makes science fun and exciting for young readers.

The book had the wrong chapter in it! Chapter 6, and then there were five was not in the book. It was replaced with Chapter six from the next book in the series. My son failed his AR test because he didn't realize it until he finished his test.

Our 7-year-old grandson had asked for more Stink books for Christmas, so we gave him two. "The Stink: Solar System Superhero" was a big hit with him. The story line is fun to follow, and, along the way, the author slips in lots and lots of facts about the solar system. Since our grandson has been studying this topic this year, he was extra interested in this story. It's an appropriate length that can be read in multiple sessions for this age.

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.
