Overview

Stink and the Incredible Super-Galactic Jawbreaker (Stink Series #2) by Megan McDonald

Spurred by a newfound awareness of false advertising, Stink Moody becomes the proverbial kid in a candy store as his letter-writing campaign yields him heaps of free rewards (ages 5-8).

When Stink buys a mammoth jawbreaker that doesn't break his jaw, he writes a letter of complaint to the manufacturer - and receives a ten-pound box of 21,280 jawbreakers for his trouble! This unexpected benefit of acing the art of letter-writing in school sure gets Stink thinking. Soon Stink is so preoccupied with getting free stuff sent to him that he overlooks a scribbly envelope in the mail pile - until his best friend, Webster, starts acting standoffish and looks as mad as a hornet.

In this hilarious new episode from Megan McDonald and Peter H. Reynolds, Judy Moody's shorter sibling truly comes into his own. As a delightful bonus for both teachers and kids, thirty-six common idioms - from "two heads are better than one" to "a leopard can’t change its spots" - are sprinkled throughout the story; seven of the idioms are humorously illustrated by Stink, and all are listed at the end to inspire a search for idioms that’s more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

About the Author

Megan McDonald is the author of Stink: The Incredible Shrinking Kid, as well as the best-selling, award-winning series about Stink's older sister, Judy Moody. She says, "Not long ago, I happened upon two kids in the candy section of my local grocery store who were in rapture over the almost snowball-size jawbreakers they'd discovered in a bin. I held up one of the tiny globes, a confetti-flecked miniature world unto itself. I knew immediately that Stink would have to have one . . . so I bought one myself, for inspiration. I like to think of it as research!"

Peter H. Reynolds is the illustrator of Stink's series debut, as well as all the Judy Moody books. He says, "My childhood was a bit Stink-ish. I craved candy - especially chocolate - after reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. So much so that I wrote to the Hershey chocolate company, and they sent me a packet of information, posters, and sample cacao beans!"

Excellent book for 6-8 year olds! Great books for the young reader. Just enough to keep her interest, and the chapters are not overly long. I have been searching for books to keep her interested, and this series is one.

My review is on Stink and The Super-Galactic Jawbreaker.The main characters are Stink Moody and Judy Moody. Stink Moody is known to be a trouble-maker and up to no good. Judy Moody is a girl who makes imaginary stuff up and is kind of a weirdo. The plot of this story is Stink finds things wrong like misspelling and labels that say their item does something, but it really doesn't, so Stink sends letters to the companies and they send him, in return, stuff from their company, but in conclusion he gives all the free stuff to his best friend because he forgot his birthday. The setting is at the candy store in Virginia and at their home. The meaning of this story is to never lie just to pawn people out of free stuff. I thought this was a fantastic book because it's funny but also teaches you a lesson. I connect to this book because I too sometimes get mad if labels say the item does something but it really doesn't, and for the world connection mostly everyone likes candy like Stink!

I am a nine year old boy and I really liked this book because it taught me lessons about how much alike I am with Stink. I can act like him, am short like him, and am in the same grade, if he is in 3rd grade. I can't wait to read all the books in the series.
