Stink needs a sport, fast! Can his alter-ego, Shark Hammersmash, wrestle a win at thumb wars? Or will a perfect karate kick lead him to victory?

Stink Moody, family brain, brings home a report card that isn’t perfect? Yikes! Time for him to get into fighting shape and beat back that U for Unsatisfactory in gym! A scan of the sports channel leads to a knock-out find: world-class thumb wrestling, with tricky moves like Snake in the Grass and Santa’s Little Helper (no equipment needed, save for a tiny terrifying mask to sit on your thumb). But when Mom and Dad are not wowed, Stink gets another idea: he’ll kick and punch his way to a yellow belt with the help of a Dragon Master, a seeing-eye Moose, and a mind as still as a pond. Can you say Crouching Tiger, Hidden Thumb? Hee-ya! Ha! Ha! Ha!

    This book was super funny! The moment I started reading this book I laughed. I tried not to laugh, but I did anyway. Stink did something he thought was going to be exercising. Spoiler Alert: it wasn't. I think you should read this amazing book! I rate this book five stars.

      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!!!
