Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Our rambunctious young hero Stink Moody is rightfully proud of all his O's for "Outstanding," but one ugly "U," an "Unsatisfactory" for phys ed, still looms like a giant sore thumb. Speaking of which: Stink's strategy for getting into grading good graces is to master thumb-wrestling. When that fails, he decides he has to take more drastic measures.... A fun addition to a kid pleasing series.

Children's Literature - Maggie Chase
In this next episode of the irrepressible Stink, he finds out, via his report card, that he's not so great in Physical Education, for which he received a U. This is unTHINKable for the Stink, so, with the help of his family, he ventures out into the world of non-spectator sports to find his inner athlete. After rejecting numerous sports for various reasons, he tries watching some sports channels and hears the mention of thumb-wrestling as a sport that can be done "...at home! In the car! At school!" Let the thumb-wrestling competitions begin! Stink learns the tricks and their names; who knew there was a Head-Butt, Playing Possum, or a Halley's Comet trick? When thumb-wrestling at school gets him in trouble, Stink's parents channel his energy into karate lessons. Stink uses the mindfulness techniques learned in karate to best his thumb-wrestling foe, Webster. This edition comes with pre-made punch-out masks to put over your thumb and directions within the story for making your own thumb mask. This book, as with others in the "Stink" series, serves as an engaging, boy-friendly transition chapter book, complete with puns, illustrations, a related web site, and great possibilities for converting chunks of the text into a readers' theater experience.
