Description

Follow your nose to a hilarious Stink-fest no kid will want to miss!

GROSS ME OUT! STINK-O! SKUNKSVILLE!

Stink Moody’s class is going on a field trip to the Gross-Me-Out exhibit at the science museum, and he can’t wait to see the Vomit Machine, the Burp-O-Meter, and the Musical Farts. Best of all, when he gets to the Everybody Stinks exhibit, Stink discovers that his very own nose has amazing sniffing abilities — and he learns that some people have real jobs sniffing stuff for NASA! Soon the junior olfactory wiz is engrossed in toilet water, corpse flowers, and all things smelly, and he and Sophie of the Elves are set to go toe-to-toe in a stinky sneaker contest. Will Stink’s fetid footwear be foul enough to earn him a Golden Clothespin Award? Stink’s loyal fans will be holding their breath for his latest outrageous solo adventure.

Excerpt: Stink and the World's Worst Super-Stinky Sneakers (by (author) Megan McDonald; illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds)

"At the museum, kids were calling me The Nose," said Stink, tapping his right nostril. "I found out today that I can smell stuff really, really great, better than anybody in my whole class. Sophie says I smell better than a dog."

"I should hope so!" said Mom. Mom and Judy cracked up.

"Woof!" said Stink.

"And here I thought you just had a nose for trouble," said Mom.

"Laugh all you want," said Stink. "But this nose could make me
famous."

"My elbow’s famous," said Judy, holding up the elbow that once
starred in a picture in the newspaper.

"No, I mean it. When I grow up, I’m going to do something great
with this nose," said Stink. "You can’t waste a nose like this." He
admired himself in the mirror, turning his head from left to right and
studying The Nose, his best feature.
