Stink: The Incredible Shrinking Kid

Format Price Qty
$18.95

Every morning, Judy Moody measures Stink and it's always the same: three feet, eight inches tall. Stink feels like even the class newt is growing faster than he is. Then, one day, the ruler reads -- can it be? -- three feet, seven and three quarters inches! Is Stink shrinking? He tries everything to look like he's growing, but wearing up-and-down stripes and spiking his hair aren't fooling anyone into thinking he's taller. If only he could ask James Madison -- Stink's hero, and the shortest person ever to serve as President of the United States. Spotlight editions are printed on high-quality paper and with reinforced library bindings specifically printed for the library market. Grades K-4.

Stink - School Library Journal

McDonald uses simple, expressive language to keep the story rolling. Stink is a fun, easy-to-love character with an authentic child voice. The action takes off from the very first chapter and is well sustained throughout. Fans of the earlier books, as well as the “Judy Moody” series, will not be disappointed.

Stink: The Incredible Shrinking Kid (Stink) - Booklist

The narrative is fun and laced with puns—from Mt. Trashmore to “newt in shining armor,” and it’s peppered with black-and-white illustrations, including comics (“The Adventures of Stink”) reflecting Stink’s triumphant fantasies.
