Overview

"Delightful full-page spot-art cartoons and playful language in large type bring the child's adventures to life. ‘Things are definitely looking up,
up, UP' with this bright addition to beginning chapter-book collections."
— SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

Shrink, shrank, shrunk!

Every morning, Judy Moody measures Stink, and it's always the same: three feet, eight inches tall. Then, one day, the ruler reads - can it be? - three feet, seven and three quarters inches! Is Stink shrinking?

In Stink's first solo adventure, his style comes through loud and strong - enhanced by a series of comic strips, drawn by Stink himself, which are sprinkled throughout the book. These very funny, homespun sagas reflect the familiar voice of a kid who pictures himself with super powers to deal with the travails of everyday life - including the occasional teasing of a bossy big sister!

The shortest kid in the second grade, James Moody, also known as Stink, learns all about the shortest president of the United States, James Madison, when they celebrate Presidents' Day at school.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-2-"Short, shorter, shortest!" Stink, the younger brother of the ever-popular Judy Moody, is shrinking. In the morning he was exactly one quarter inch taller than he is that night. For the shortest second grader in his school (maybe in the world), this is a disaster. What can he do? Judy suggests stretching him out, but he decides to take his mother's advice and eat his peas instead. However, Stink has other worries as well, such as a disastrous weekend caring for his class's pet newt. Then, a President's Day project allows Stink to shine as he shares all he knows about his favorite president, James Madison, who was also short. Delightful full-page and spot-art cartoons and playful language in large type bring the child's adventures to life. "Things are definitely looking up, up, UP" with this bright addition to beginning chapter-book collections.-Deanna Romriell, Salt Lake City Library, UT Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Judy Moody's little brother Stink, a.k.a. James, finally gets his turn. He uses it to obsess about his height-especially after he loses a quarter of an inch between morning and night (as does everyone, he later learns). He also records unfortunate incidents with hair-gel dye, the class newt and a sink drain, and an all-too-shrinkable wig intended to kick his report on James Madison, the shortest President and so, not coincidentally, his favorite, up a notch. Presented in large type on small pages, enhanced with plenty of Reynolds's black-and-white ink-and-wash drawings, plus comics contributed by Stink himself, and ending on a triumphant note, this makes fine fare for fledgling chapter-book readers. Stink definitely measures up to his memorable sister. (Fiction. 8-10)

Meet the Author

Megan McDonald
Megan McDonald is the author of the popular and award-winning series starring Judy Moody. She says, "Once, while I was visiting a class full of Judy Moody readers, the kids, many with spiked hair à la Judy's little brother, chanted, 'Stink! Stink! Stink! Stink! Stink!' as I entered the room. In that moment, I knew that Stink had to have a book all his own."

Peter H. Reynolds is the illustrator of all the Judy Moody books. He says, "I've fallen in love with the whole cast of characters in the world of Judy Moody, but Stink has always been a favorite of mine. He reminds me of myself growing up: dealing with a sister prone to teasing and bossing around — and having to get creative in order to stand tall beside her."

Read an Excerpt

The bell rang, and Mrs. Dempster passed out spelling words. Three of the new words were shrink, shrank, shrunk. At lunch, the dessert was strawberry shortcake. And in Reading, Mrs. Dempster read everybody a book called THE SHRINKING OF TREEHORN.

The book was all about a boy who plays games and reads cereal boxes and gets shorter and shorter. He keeps shrinking and shrinking. Then, just when he becomes a normal size again, he turns green!

"Any comments?" Mrs. Dempster asked when the story was over.

Stink raised his hand. "Is that a true story?"

Mrs. D. laughed. "I'm afraid not," she said. "It's fantasy."

"Fantasy's my favorite!" said Sophie of the Elves. "Especially hobbits and elves."

"Are you sure it's fantasy?" asked Stink. "Because that kid is a lot like me. Because I'm . . . I'm . . ." Stink could not make himself say shrinking.

"Because you both turned another color?" asked Webster.

"Um, because I like to read everything on the cereal box, too," said Stink.

"Okay," said Mrs. Dempster. "Let's see. Who's going to carry the milk from the cafeteria today?" Stink was barely paying attention. He never got asked to carry the milk.

"How about Mr. James Moody?" asked Mrs. Dempster.

"Me?" asked Stink. He sat up taller. "I get to carry the milk?"

Stink walked down the second-grade hallway. It looked longer than usual. And wider. He took the stairs down to the cafeteria. Were there always this many stairs? His legs felt shorter. Like they shrink, shrank, shrunk.

    Read this book!

    Stink has a problem. He is super short. He is always one head shorter than his sister, Judy. He is the shortest in his family and class and he thinks he is shrinking! So will Stink grow or will he always be one head shorter than his sister? If you want to know you can read this book. I loved it and you will too if you read it. I liked it because Stink tries to grow a lot of different ways. by Bailey

    Stink The Incredible Shrinking Kid

    Stink hates being short. He is the shortest kid in the 2nd. grade. He has a sister who constantly reminds him that he is short. Stink loves school and puts alot of effort into school projects. I like the chapter where he does an assignment about his favorite President, James Madison. Stink likes Madison because he was the shortest President. They also share the same first name , James. The book is easy to read and full of good humor. The book also contains comic strips created by Stink that are very funny. My student's loved reading this book . Gary Dominicus

    My grandson LOVES these books. Makes him want to read more!

    I purchased this book for my grandson. He wasn't much into reading when I purchased several other books for him but, since this IS his favorite subject (LOL), he can't get enough of these books. Guess I'll keep buying them for him. He is also interested in the Civil War. I can always count on Barnes and Noble.

    Stink: A fun and funny series

    Stink is a great series. The brother of the popular "Judy Moody" series is a great lead character in his own right. The books are charming, funny, clever and well-illustrated. While this was bought for our second-grade daughter, this is a grand series for boys, who often only have choices of super heroes and sci-fi. Highly recommended.

    Humorous for me and my 5 year old

    We were in stitches the entire read. Excellent introduction to chapter books. Having read Judy Moody books too, this is an excellent spinoff.
