Author Bio

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."

Praise

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.
—School Library Journal

This spirited launch of a new series focuses on Judy Moody's younger brother, Stink. . . . McDonald's breezy narrative and likable character will keep Judy's followers amply amused and recruit new fans.
—Publishers Weekly

The narrative is fun and laced with puns-from Mr. Trashmore to "newt in shining armor," and it's peppered with black-and-white illustrations, including comics reflecting Stink's triumphant fantasies.
—Booklist

A fine fare for fledgling chapter-book readers. Stink definitely measures up to his memorable sister.
—Kirkus Reviews

Readers of Judy Moody who requested that Stink have a book of his own will not be disappointed.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

A humorous look at the emotional trauma a second-grader experiences at the thought of growing smaller, rather than growing taller.
—Times-Picayune

Judy Moody lovers (and their little brothers) will adore her younger brother, Stink.
—Seattle Times

With child-savvy humor and energy, McDonald explores Stink's frustrations with being 'the shortest second-grader in Class 2-D. Probably the shortest human being the in whole word, including Alaska and Hawaii.'
—Child

Hilarious…Set them loose on the rest of the series, and ZOOM, they're reading and loving it!
