Description

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. 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.

Professional reviews

"Stink, Judy Moody's younger brother, is back! Standing up to his sister and standing up for his ideas, Stink turns a visit to the candy store into one sweet outing. Empowered by his newly learned letter-writing skills, Stink sets out to share his opinions on various products with the manufacturers but almost forgets the importance of friendship. Nancy Cartwright shines as narrator. Her intensity matches the humorous determination and imagination of both Judy and Stink. She is vibrant and vivacious as Stink and superior and needling as older sister Judy. Cartwright's fast pace matches the story's urgency. What a delightfully painless way to bone up on letter-writing skills! A.R. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine"
