A short kid (gulp!) gets even shorter

Judy Moody has her own series of books. Now we hear the story of her second-grader brother, Stink, who believes he's the world's smallest human being--and that he's shrinking! His big sister measures him every day, and one day he's actually 1/4 inch shorter. YIKES.

Stink tries many things to look taller, including wearing stripe and gelling his hair way up. In the meantime, readers are treated to hilarious comic strips depicting his life in imaginative detail. (Peter H. Reynolds is the genius behind the illustrations!)

Annoying!

Reader reviewed by ♥KikiGirl♥

I know I'm 12, but this book just seems pointless. It seems like something my little brother (who just farted in my face, ew) would read. Even if I was 12, I still wouldn't read this.

He, He, Ha, Ha

Reader reviewed by Rosie

Stink does not stink. He is actually kind of cool. I'm very glad about getting this book! It is very funny. I am also a huge fan of Judy Moody so reading this book was also just as good. Now you get out there and read this book!

Starring...Judy Moody's younger brother!

Reader reviewed by librariane

Stink hates being shorthis goal in life is to not be the shortest one in his class or his family. But he does come to realize that there are short people everywhere, and his favorite president is James Madison, partly because hes short! The main event in the book, besides Stinks obsession with being short, is the class newt: Stink gets to have him for the weekend. Part of the responsibility is to keep a journal, and Judy makes sure to let her brother know that this is an extremely boring pet. Things get a
little lively, though, when the newt escapes!
This is a cute, quick read, a level below the Judy Moody books. Stink is an adorable
character and Judy is the obnoxious sibling, so McDonald has proved to effectively write for
her character. The only thing I found disconcerting was the whole book felt a little
disjointed, but I doubt the kids will notice.
