Stink is really embarrassed. Even though he is really good at most things he tries, he is still in the Polliwog swimming class for little kids because he can't put his face underwater. All of the sudden, Stink starts seeing frogs everywhere. After a BLUE frog licks his arm he starts acting like a frog himself. He starts jumping around the house like a frog and sticking his tongue out to eat things. He starts to memorize frog calls and goes to a frog festival to learn more about them. The one good thing about thinking he is a frog is that he is finally able to put his head under water and gets to move on to the big kid swim class.
I liked this book because it was fun learning facts about frogs and how they act. I just don't want to turn into a frog!!!
Stink has a problem! He got a perfect report card except for a U (UNSATISFACTORY) in gym class. He needs to find a new sport to play, but doesn't know which one. First he tries out thumb-wrestling. He gets in trouble and can't play it anymore. Next, he tries karate and gets all the way up to yellow belt. At the end of the book, he decides to have a thumb-wrestling smackdown with his friends. He is the Ultimate Thumb-Wrestling Smackdown Champion!
This book made me interested in trying thumb-wrestling again. I have played a couple times, but never won! I'll pass on karate, though, and stick to kickboxing!!!
In this book Stink's parents go to an auction and win a sleepover at the aquarium. Stink's friend Webster gets to go to the sleepover too! They invite their friend Sophie to come with them. When they get there, they hear a spooky story, have a treat, and it is time for bed. Stink has a hard time falling asleep because he keeps thinking about the story of Bloody Mary. He ends up staying awake the whole night! In the morning, they wake up and leave.
I like this book because it gave a lot of interesting facts about sea creatures. I learned that the mega dillon shark has a top fin that is 7 feet long and one of its teeth is 8 inches long! I think it would be so awesome if I got to sleepover at an aquarium some day!
