Stink and the Attack of the Slime Mold

By Megan McDonald
Illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds

Aaagh! Crawl slowly for your lives! Stink kicks off his second decade with a super-funny homage to an oozy-goozy organism.

Glip! Glop! Gloop! What looks like dog vomit, smells like a corpse flower, and stars in one of the scariest movies Stink Moody has ever seen? Is it the Blob? The Glob? Son of Glob? No, it’s . . . slime mold! Stink may be a super science geek, but even Dr. Stinkelstein is feeling freaked out about having a slime mold living and growing in his very own room. At Saturday Science Club, Stink learns that these one-celled organisms are smart enough to find their way out of mazes and gang up on food sources — so who says they aren’t smart enough to take over Stink’s pets, Stink’s room, Stink himself, and . . . the world? Vintage horror flicks meet classic Star Trek episodes as a wary Stink (with some help from Dr. Judy Moody) comes to know and love an unusual new pet in a hilarious adventure that sneaks in factoids and comics at each chapter’s end.

  • The dedicated website relaunch to celebrate Stink's 10th anniversary in 2015 will culminate in a series of teasers in late fall 2015, leading up to the February 2016 publication date of this, book #10.
  • Contains a bonanza of classroom connections: Stink grows his own slime mold at home!
  • One of the more eye-catching installments to date, given the variety of settings and the homages to B horror movies, including fake movie posters and storyboards.
