Stink and the Incredible
Stink Moody discovers that writing a letter can be a powerful thing. After all, he wrote a letter to a candy company complaining that their candy jawbreaker did not, in fact, break his jaw . . . so they sent him ten pounds of free jawbreakers.
Fans of Judy Moody and the American Girl (Julie) series will already be well-aware of this author. Judy (Stink's sister) appears in the book, but Stink is the focus. The cartoon elements that close each chapter and the humor throughout the book make it appealing to readers. Each chapter is titled with an idiom, and a list of idioms is included at the end of the book. It's less offensive than Captain Underpants and includes more redeeming messages, but retains a kid-friendly sense of fun.
This is the second book in a series about Stink (I preferred this one to the third about the World's Worst Super- Stinky Sneakers, but I have not yet read the fourth one about The Great Guinea Pig Express).
This book is generally targeted to readers in 3rd or 4th grade, or ages 8 - 10, but advanced 7 year old readers would understand and appreciate the friendship-based story.
