In honor of Judy Moody's younger "bother," the creators of the award-winning series have put themselves in a very Stink-y mood — proving, once and for all, that you're only as short as you feel.

Shrink, shrank, shrunk!

Every morning, Judy Moody measures Stink and it's always the same: three feet, eight inches tall. Stink feels like even the class newt is growing faster than he is. Then, one day, the ruler reads — can it be? — three feet, seven and three quarters inches! Is Stink shrinking? He tries everything to look like he’s growing, but wearing up-and-down stripes and spiking his hair aren't fooling anyone into thinking he's taller. If only he could ask James Madison — Stink's hero, and the shortest person ever to serve as President of the United States.

In Stink's first solo adventure, his special style comes through loud and strong — enhanced by a series of comic strips, drawn by Stink himself, which are sprinkled throughout the book. From "The Adventures of Stink in SHRINK MONSTER" to "The Adventures of Stink in NEWT IN SHINING ARMOR," these very funny, homespun sagas reflect the familiar voice of a kid who pictures himself with super powers to deal with the travails of everyday life — including the occasional teasing of a bossy big sister!

l love the book

The book stink the ineredible shrinking kid is sad because his not big. Stink had to carry the milk down hall way. And stink kept thinking that he is shrinking. My favorite part is when stink gets a pet from school. I recommend the book to someone who like not being small.

This is book is so awesome! It caught my eye in the library because I love the Judy Moody books. I think that Stink is as funny as Judy. I like this book. It is simply hilarious! I was laughing at every page turner. I won't spoil it with any specifics, but if you like comics or a kid who writes comics then I think you will love, Love, LOve, LOVe, LOVE this book!
