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.

I have enjoyed reading the Stink books so far. I've been reading them, and I have loved them so much. The relationship between Stink and his sister Judy is a love/hate relationship, and it cracks me up. At times they help each other. At times they work together. At times they play pranks on each other. At times, they are sick of each other. At times they try to get each other in trouble. It reminds me very much of my own relationship with my sister. After each chapter, there is a comic that has been written by Stink. These comics are silly, but I love them. They make me read the comic part three or four times. This is a great read aloud book/series for young boys, I would guess any elementary school aged, although my three year old enjoys this as a bedtime story. What is cool about this book is that even though it is for kids, I still enjoyed reading it. It is well written, has great characters, has funny scenes, and really captures the essence of being a kid. This is a first-purchase for elementary libraries.

I love stink books. If I had to read all of them I would be so happy. I also suggest to read this book 20 times. It is that good. Also if it was going out in freebies and I got to book I would be so happy to read again. Its the best book to suggest to friends, siblings, and cousins.

I meant to say and I get the book at freebies part, and at the happy to read I meant i would be so happy to read it again

i really like this book

This book is so good that I love it so much that I want to read again. Stink had a pajama day in his class that it was fine but it a little bit sad.

Okay, so I read and reviewed the first of the series of the Stink books, and I just had to get the second one to see if Stink was just a one hit wonder. The author did not let me down. This is book is also so awesome! Stink kept me laughing as he wrote letters to companies about errors in their advertisement. It reminded me of my dad soooo much! And guess, what? He received free stuff back from the companies that he wrote! I know what I'm going to do this summer!
