Megan McDonald is the creator of the Stink Moody series. Stink has two passions in life. The second grader loves to read volumes of the encyclopedia and his pets His older sister, Judy Moody, thinks he is weird. His Mom and Dad are patient with their offspring.
Stink Moody began as a character in the Judy Moody series. Little Moody stood in her shadow until Megan McDonald decides the young man merits a series of his own. Stink Moody fans are happy. It seems Stink is not the only fan of stink. Maybe it is the age group. The target readers are children between the age five and eight-years-old. They like Stink think stinky cheese, sneakers, animals and flowers are cool.
Our hero is not only about stinky items. The Stink Moody series shows younger siblings can survive bossy older ones. Also, children learn people with unique qualities have something to contribute to the world. Not many people sit and read volumes of the encyclopedia or have a nose that sniffs out the most peculiar odors. Nevertheless, one-of-a-kind Stink can use his knowledge and talent to help others, and Stink has a very good time while he does it.
One word of caution to parents, Stink and the World’s Worst Super-Stinky Sneakers has the words: poo and fart. Otherwise, the Stink Moody series do not require adult censorship. The children in the series speak proper grammar. Minor adversity happens, however that is part of the learning process. Early chapter book readers learn social skills so they can become better friends, family and community members.
