My 7yo brought this home from school to read. Nabbed it for a quick read. Cute. I especially liked the "Stink's Furry Facts" at the end of each chapter. They were fun and interesting facts about guinea pigs more than 10,000yrs ago South American Indians ate them and in the Andes mountains of Bolivia and Peru they still do! Moreover, the story itself was a wholesome tale of a traveling adventure to find homes for 101 guinea pigs that were saved from being put down.

My first Stink book

Stink is lovable. Add in a guinea pig storyline and it is just perfect. Not just for boys though, everyone will love this series.

I'm an adult, but I love guinea pigs and kids books too. For a kids book, this is a five star book. As an adult I wouldn't rank it that high in comparison to others I've read, but subtract 30 years from my life and that's what I would have given it :) So cute, and I love how it gives true piggy facts at the end of each chapter.

Stink Moody and his friends, Sophie and Webster, are trying to make a replica of the Great Wall of China using cereal boxes. But as they finish building it, it starts moving and as they investigate they discover it is making strange sounds also. The sound it is making is wee, wee, wee, wee. And the three children discover 3 Guinea pigs. And that is the beginning of a grand adventure of the 101 guinea pigs and the Great Guinea Pig Express. The chapters in this book are:

Gr 1–3—Stink is back. This time, he and friends Webster and Sophie are working on a cereal-box re-creation of the Great Wall of China when the youngsters discover some mysterious guinea pigs hiding in one of the boxes. They figure out that the animals escaped from the local pet store. Store owner Mrs. Birdwistle informs the kids that she has rescued 101 guinea pigs but can't keep them all. Immediately, Stink and company volunteer to help find homes for them. With funny, and at times quite witty, ...more

Stink Moody (AKA Judy's younger brother) has his own series and kids are devouring them. Written by Megan McDonald (the same author as the Judy Moody series) Stink has his own pals and his own escapades. In the fourth book of the series Stink and his friends happen upon Mrs. Birdwhistle and her overabudance of guinea pigs who need homes. While the book can be classified as contemporary realistic fiction there are a few far-fetched ideas thrown in here and there. (Example: Kids going on a short ...more

I loved it! Also, I learned lots of interesting facts about guinea pigs.

Along with the (fascinating) nonfiction comics, there were lots of opportunities to suspend my disbelief. The pet shop owner had a driveable trailer just waiting to be cleaned and turned into a rescue van? Check! She's totally into the idea of three second-graders (?) using it as a mobile adoption center? Check! She then wants to take them on a road trip to her guinea-pig rescue center friend in Virginia? Check! Hijinks ensu
Stink is back, and this time he is on a mission to find homes for a ridiculous number of guinea pigs. The local pet store owner, Mrs. Birdwhistle has 101 guinea pigs that she is trying to get to a guinea pig rescue centre where a friend of hers can take some of the pets. But its up to Stink, Webster and Sophie to help Mrs. Birdwhistle find homes for the rest.

Author Megan Morgan gives Stink a cross-country rescue adventure that makes him as much of a hero as his sister Judy. She also manages to s

Stink is a very popular character with students and after reading this book I can understand why. Stink and the rest of the characters in this book are all very likable and fun. Stink and his friends help Mrs. Birdwhistle from the local pet store find homes for 101 guinea pigs that she has rescued. The kids come up with a creative solution to finding homes for so many guinea pigs. Not only is their solution creative, but it is also a lot of fun for them. The book also gives some interesting ...more

I am a huge fan of Judy Moody, but I have a hard time getting my son interested in any book with a female main character. So, I had to check out this early chapter book about Moody's little brother Stink. I just finished reading this out loud to my son, and he laughed so hard that he had hiccups for 20 minutes afterwards. Though I didn't feel the same personal connection with Stink as I did with his sister, this book was winner in my son's eyes.

Stink and his friends Sophie and Webster help the local pet shop owner, Mrs. Birdwistle, find homes for 101 fluffy guinea pigs in this fur-and-fun-filled romp. This series already has a solid fan base, but this title is sure to garner even more. The cuddly subject matter, extra-large font, frequent illustrations in Reynolds' signature cartoon style, and additional "Stink's Furry Facts" comics are sure to attract many new fans. This one is just fun.

Stink Moody is one of my favorite characters in children's literature today. When he, Webster and Sophie of the Elves embark on saving a bunch of guinea pigs in the Squeals on Wheels van, oh what fun they have! The guinea pig facts included in this book are very interesting and kids loved hearing those. I know that I learned a lot by reading them! This book makes for a great read aloud. I read it to my 2nd graders who are guinea pig crazy and it was a hit!

Cute story about Stink Moody and his friends as they help to find good homes for 101 guinea pigs who were rescued by Mrs. Birdwistle. Trying to find homes for these cute little criters is harder than they thought. So they embark on an adventure trip to Virginia to try to find good homes for them....well except for one special guinea pig that Stink grows overly attached too.

Stink, Webster, and Sophie of the Elves team up with a neighbor to help give away 101 rescued guinea pigs. They even go on a cross-state trip in an old bus, and things are going well until Stink becomes a little too attached to a certain guinea pig named Astro.

Another cute Stink book! Also, a good book for introducing kids to the idea of owning a pet.

Very cute first chapter book. The story was cute and interesting, and it was a challenging - but not too challenging - book for my lower elementary reader, who is making the transition to reading real chapter books on her own. This is a good read aloud (parent or child reading) for lower elementary to middle grade kids. I will be getting more Stink books for her to read.

a cute book for little brothers. I like that it actually goes in to describing the amount if work required to keep a pet and the trouble it can cause. I don't think the expectation that a bunch of kids can travel with a non related adult far distances without consulting their parents FIRST is a good one to set.

This book is about a boy name stink, who founds a lot of guinea pigs and his friends and him they don't know what to do, but the best solution they just start a little zoo were people can adopt guinea pig. All this was a perfect solution until people were starting to get problem with the guinea pig.... What do u think its going to happen with all this animals and all this problem?? Hmm

This book was great!

The characters and their innocence is precious, not to mention funny! I loved their dedication and the fact that the author introduced the horrid problem of animals being used for testing cosmetics in a gentle way. The kids demonstrate commitment and the book promotes adoption instead of buying.

A MUST-READ..................

This was just as fun as all of McDonald's other books, this one starring Stink, instead of Judy. Join him and his friends as they find, capture and help find good homes for 101 guinea pigs. They help Mrs. Birdwhistle of Fur & Fangs save these creatures and create a travelling guinea pig home to help get them adopted.

I never raised these critters as a kid, but I remembered how much I wanted a pet growing up as well. This one brought those memories right back. I read this book as an adult reader and enjoyed every moment of it. I cannot wait to read the other books in this series. The book had me laughing from beginning to end. It was such a cute story. Won't you give these a read?

I lovd this book! It was a cute book that teaches teamwork and finding homes for animals! It was a greta transitional book that would be easy for children to get through. I believe it will have a place in my classroom one day! Great for grades 2 and 3.

In the book Stink and the Great Guinea Pig Express, Stink, Webster, and Sophie try to give away guinea pigs. The story starts when a boy named Stink and his friends make a Wall of Cereal Boxes instead of the Great Wall of China. This book was great because of the cute, cuddly, furry guinea pigs.
