Spurred by a newfound awareness of false advertising, Stink Moody becomes the proverbial kid in a candy store as his letter-writing campaign yields him heaps of free rewards.

When Stink buys a mammoth jawbreaker that doesn't break his jaw, he writes a letter of complaint to the manufacturer - and receives a ten-pound box of 21,280 jawbreakers for his trouble! This unexpected benefit of acing the art of letter-writing in school sure gets Stink thinking. Soon Stink is so preoccupied with getting free stuff sent to him that he overlooks a scribbly envelope in the mail pile - until his best friend, Webster, starts acting standoffish and looks as mad as a hornet.

In this hilarious new episode from Megan McDonald and Peter H. Reynolds, Judy Moody's shorter sibling truly comes into his own. As a delightful bonus for both teachers and kids, thirty-six common idioms - from "two heads are better than one" to "a leopard can't change its spots" - are sprinkled throughout the story; seven of the idioms are humorously illustrated by Stink, and all are listed at the end to inspire a search for idioms that's more fun than a barrel of monkeys.

Stink is back. Unhappy with the lack of jawbreaking done by his giant jawbreaker, he writes a letter to the candy company. They send him a box of Jawbreakers as a consolation prize. This sparks him to begin writing letters to many different companies to complain about their products. This leads to a flood of consolation prizes. But Stink is so wrapped up in this endeavour that he misses something very important. Can Stink make up for his shortfall and rise to the top?

Cute story for the beginning reader. Nothing that will change your life, but a fun read for boys and girls.
