Every morning, Judy measures Stink, and it's always the same: 3 feet, 8 inches tall. Stink feels like even the class newt is growing faster than he is. Then one day, the ruler reads--3 feet, 7 and three-quarter inches! Can it be? Is Stink shrinking? Stink tries everything to look like he's growing, but wearing up-and-down stripes and spiking his hair don't seem to be fooling anybody into thinking he's taller. What would James Madison, Stink's hero (and the shortest person to ever serve as President of the United States) do? Download and start listening now!

    " I loved this book. I think children would have a great text to self connection with this story. I also liked how at the end of each chapter, there was a comic strip summarizing the chapter. The historical reference in this story is a great way to introduce class history projects to students. Great! "

    " Stink, known as the little brother of Judy Moody, is the smallest kid in second grade. He is self-conscious about his height, made worse by the teasing of Judy. I couldn't really tell you plot of the book, even though I just read it last night. A beginning chapter book for early readers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey | 2/12/2014

    " Read to my 5 year old son. He enjoyed it, and for our first "Chapter Book" it held his attention fairly well. I liked the amount of educational value included in the book, while still keeping the book funny enough to entertain a little boy. We read it on a Kindle, which made the comic pictures different to read (which won't enlarge), so I might recommend it as a regular book if you're willing, but I prefer the Kindle version whenever possible, even with the drawbacks. We will be continuing the series. "

    " I preread some of my kids scholastic reading counts books, to try to help them better understand it. This series is definitely one of the very best, these books are great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gordon Elijah | 1/3/2014

    " I thought this book was kind of funny and cool. It was a very awesome book because Stink is kind of weird and funny, and so is Stink's sister, Judy Moody. And they're kind of silly and a little bit crazy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maitha | 1/2/2014

    " When my son Omar, noticed that his eldest sister Naama was really interested in the Judy Moody series, he begged to read them. But I found them quite harder han his level of reading. Then I found out that the Judy Moody fans requested a series for her brother stink. AND they were just perfect for my boy. The style is so engaging for a beginner who wants to try chapter books. I recommend. "

    " This is Judy Moody's little brother. He's cute and scrappy and kind of anxious. In this book, his sister fools him into thinking he's shrinking, so he spends a lot of time trying to get taller in all kinds of ways. He also has to babysit the class pet, Newton the Newt, with disastrous results. "

    " This is my first of the Judy Moody books. I've always heard they were cute, but my oldest son is allergic to girls. So when I saw they had a book featuring Judy's little brother Stink, I figured it was a good way to get him hooked :)
    Very cute and age appropriate. "
