Shark-tastic! Stink gets to sleep with the fishes after his parents win an aquarium sleepover. But wait — what’s that lurking beyond the KEEP OUT sign?

When Stink’s parents win tickets for the whole family to sleep over at the aquarium (along with Stink’s two best friends), it sounds like a science freak’s dream come true. Stink loves the sea-creature scavenger hunt (Bat ra

A Nice Addition to the Stink Series

This is a strong entry in the series that features Stink Moody, Judy's seven and three quarter year old younger brother. The Moody family has won tickets to a family sleepover at the aquarium, so Mom, Dad, Judy, Stink, and friends Sophie and Webster are off on an adventure.

The aquarium is actually sort of the star of this book and the author does a wonderful job of making the aquarium exciting as she moves the kids from exhibit to exhibit during a scavenger hun

Stink’s parents went to a fundraiser and came home with a surprise - the whole family has won the opportunity to visit the aquarium after hours and sleep over! Stink is thrilled at the thought of spending the night surrounded by sharks and other exciting sea creatures, but he worries that when it comes time to turn in for the night, he’ll be too scared to sleep.

What I like about the Stink series is that the stories always have an educational component. In the last Stink book I read, Stink and th

My first introduction to either Megan McDonald or Peter H Reynolds were the Judy Moody and Stink books. I have since read all the books in both of those series and most of the other books by both Megan the Author and Peter the illustrator. After more than 30 books in this series it is still highly entertaining. I gave up on Xanth long before that and there are few series that keep me that long especially if written by one author. That is a testament to the craft of both McDonald and Reynolds. I ...more

Stink and the Shark Sleepover is a realistic fiction story by Megan McDonald. Stinks Mom and Dad come home with tickets to the aquarium sleepover. The main characters in Stink and the Shark Sleepover are Stink, Webster and Sophie. I think people who like sharks should read Stink and the Shark Sleepover.

Spending a night at an aquarium leads to an exciting adventure of fun, knowledge, and scary moments in the latest installment in the Stink Books.

Narrator Barbara Rosenblat does a great job of bringing this children’s tale to life. Her mannerisms and cadence captures the energy of this rowdy group of youngsters, along with the calm adults on hand.

Stink Moody’s family won tickets to a sleepover at the local aquarium. Mom, Dad, Stink and sister Judy are joined by Stink’s friends, Sophie and Webster

This is another adventure in the Stink books and it has all the action and fun as the rest! In this book Stink's parents won a trip to a sleepover at the local aquarium. Stink's friends got to go as well so the whole gang was there. Stink has always had a secret fear of staying the night away from home and at sleepovers. As his annoying sister Judy points out he can never make it through the night. While at the aquarium they play all kinds of games and activities; they have a scavenger hunt, an ...more

I was really excited to see this in the mail because I love the Stink series.

This is an early chapter book about a boy called Stink whose family wins a sleepover trip to the aquarium. They invite Stink’s friend Webster to go with them.

They get to the aquarium during the day and learn about sharks, turtles, eels, and a lot of other sea creatures. A scavenger hunt is set up for everyone and they search for different animals throughout the aquarium. Stink got to

Stink is excited to learn that his parents have won a sleepover at the aquarium for the whole family. He is even happier to learn that his friends Sophie and Webster will also be there. The kids spend the evening with Miss D. enjoying the exhibits and having their questions about the different fish answered. The bad thing about the sleepover is that Riley Rottenberger is there with her FINS group (Friends in Nature Study). She continually bugs Stink and boasts that her team will win the ...more

This book is about a character named Stink, his parents win tickets to have a sleepover at the aquarium. He's friend Sophie is also having a sleepover at the aquarium and decides to bring along their friend Webster. They are all very excited about the thought of having a shark sleepover and stay awake the whole night, to participate in adventures such as playing games and going on a hunt to find 'Mr Crab cakes.' Who is Sophie's pet and they eventually find him hiding in Judy's (Stink's sister) s

My daughter requested that I read this after she enjoyed it, so I did. :) I have to say, I quite admire this series and the Judy Moody one. The prose is unexpectedly sharp, even if the voices aren't 100% believable, and I appreciate the integration of real content (here, lots of fun facts about sharks, engagingly presented). Perhaps the highest praise is from my daughter (age 6 3/4) who said that she'd like to meet the author.

Cute book by the same author as Judy moody. Stink, who is scared of sleepovers goes on a group sleepover with his friends and family at the aquarium. There are lots of marine, fish, and shark facts thrown in between the chapters. Lots of corny jokes and a fun simple read. We follow stink on his evening of fun at the aquarium and help him solve problems and face his fears. A simple read for new readers of chapter books. Late 1st and 2nd grade maybe?

The kids liked this one. We took a trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium last summer, so they still remembered.

Stink's parents win a sleepover at the aquarium and Stink and friends get to go. Except Stink is a bit afraid of sleeping over away from home.

Lots of ocean animals, a scavenger hunt, a missing hermit crab and some pranks.

When Stink's parents win a sleepover at the aquarium, Stink is beside himself with excitement! The whole Moody family gets to go, as well as a few of Stink's friends. They have an amazing time at the aquarium, including a scavenger hunt, touching the animals, and a campfire with scary stories. Includes many fun facts about sharks. Recommended for grades 1-3.
Judy Moody's little brother Stink is thrilled when his parents win tickets for a sleepover at the local aquarium. But he's a little nervous about sleeping near the sharks. As is typical in this series, there is much humor. Fans of the series will enjoy the descriptions of rather gross creatures such as the vampire squid as well as the suspense and drama, all wrapped in a warm familial embrace.

Yay we loved this one

All the parts were good. And we loved looking up pictures of all the fish on the internet while we read. This way we could see what they looked like too.

My 8 year old son really enjoyed this book. I think this series is going to be a winner and we look forward to reading more of these books.

Megan McDonald has done it again. Extremely fun book about an overnight at an aquarium with Stink and some friends and other children and their families. Facts about aquatic life are given also.
This wasn't the best of the Stink books. I didn't care for the scary myth of bloody-Mary parts. Some good info on ocean animals though.
