Stink: Hamlet and Cheese

By Megan McDonald
Illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds

Hie thee to Shakespeare camp with Stink to learn fake sword-fighting, spout silly curses, and prithee try to escape a kiss . . . BLUCK!

It’s spring break, and Stink is faced with a difficult choice: hang out at home with his sister, Judy, or become a Shakespeare Sprite with his friend Sophie of the Elves. Hanged be! When Sophie tells Stink that there will be swordplay and cursing at Shakespeare camp, his choice is made. But wait! How now? The eager young thespian hadn’t counted on Riley Rottenberger being a Sprite, too. And he positively had not counted on being the only boy! Fie upon’t!

  • Shakespeare seems a perfect fit for a Moody book: fertile fodder for jokes, puns, mishaps and mix-ups both on-stage and off!
  • Being the only boy amidst a room full of girls is likely an experience many young boys share or will share at some point in their primary school careers. Stink's bravery in the face of such odds, and his ability to embrace the benefits of the imbalance are superb models for any kid who's felt like an anomaly.
  • A reflection of the enormous variety of themed summer camps families now have available to them.
