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.

Publisher's Weekly Review
The younger brother of Judy Moody first made a splash with his own book in Stink: The Incredible Shrinking Boy (PW said of his debut, "McDonald's breezy narrative and likable characters will keep Judy's followers amply amused and recruit new fans"). Now in his third solo adventure, Stink and the World's Worst Super-Stinky Sneakers by Megan McDonald, illus. by Peter H. Reynolds, the hero finds that he has a nose that lives up to his name: Stink has a talent for sniffing out pungent odors. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
