Stink and the Attack of the Slime Mould

By Megan McDonald
Illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds

The tenth book in the internationally popular series about Judy Moody's little brother has a scientific focus, as Stink grows his own icky, sticky slime mould.

From international bestselling author Megan McDonald comes the tenth book in the series about Judy Moody's little "bother", Stink. Perfect for fans of Captain Underpants and Kes Gray, this blobby, globby tale is sure to have readers squirming and giggling all at once. 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 mould! Stink may be a super science geek, but even Dr Stinkelstein is feeling freaked out about having a slime mould living and growing in his very own room. 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 tenth instalment in the series coincides with Stink's 10th anniversary and the relaunch of www.stinkmoody.com
  • The story has strong educational links, with topics such as classification and micro-organisms covered in a fun and accessible way.
  • Short chapters, black and white illustrations and comic strips make this ideal for reluctant readers.
