** spoiler alert ** Judy Moody's younger brother Stink gets his own series of books. This is a great series for transitional readers with illustrations, shorter chapters, largish type and plenty of white space. The one-page cartoon strips that seperate each chapter are an appealing addition as well. Stink's life is not easy in this outing as Judy gives him a pretty hard time - she turns his hair orange among other things. The really casual treatment of the death of the class pet (accidentally by Judy's hands) might upset some animal lovers. This would work well as enrichment for a unit on President's Day.
