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, 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.
