Overview

Shark-tastic! Stink gets to sleep with the fishes after his parents win an aquarium sleepover. But wait — what’s that lurking beyond the KEEP OUT sign? When Stink’s parents win tickets for the whole family to sleep over at the aquarium (along with Stink’s two best friends), it sounds like a science freak’s dream come true. Stink loves the sea-creature scavenger hunt (Bat ray! Brain coral!), the jellyfish light show, and the shiver of sand tiger sharks with razor-sharp teeth. And of course Stink is nuts about gross stuff, but after some spooky stories around the virtual campfire, can he manage to fall asleep thinking about the eating habits of the vampire squid? Especially Bloody Mary, the mutant, glowing Frankensquid that’s supposed to be on the prowl?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Pages of fast facts about nonfiction topics related to the story (major aquariums, prehistoric megalodon sharks, and vampire squids) separate the chapters. With large type, an appealing title, and plenty of lively black-and-white illustrations, the ninth book in the Stink series will quickly find its readers.

Children's Literature - Claudia Mills
When Stink’s parents win a family sleepover at the aquarium at a fancy “fundraiser thingy,” Stink is all ready with his shark sleeping bag, stuffed tiger shark, and shark-tooth necklace. But he does not know that irritating Riley Rottenberger will be in attendance, too … or that his friend Sophie’s new pet hermit crab, Mr. Crab Cakes, is going to escape … or that a bedtime story about Bloody Mary the vampire squid will prove to be quite so terrifying. Adventures here are gentle; problems are easily solved; family dynamics are amiable. The fun of this latest installment in the popular “Stink” series centers chiefly on its treasure trove of fascinating facts about marine life (e.g., “A sperm whale’s brain is the size of 5 human brains. A guppy’s brain is the size of half a grain of rice”) and abundant word play (e.g., a blue spot on a jelly fish is not its belly button, but its “jelly button”). Fans of the series should want to stay awake for this sleepover, and the teamwork of McDonald and Reynolds should boost ticket sales at aquariums everywhere. Reviewer: Claudia Mills, Ph.D.; Ages 6 to 9.
