Stink and the Freaky Frog Freakout

By Megan McDonald
Illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds

Croak! Squeenk! Ribbet! After a close encounter with a mutant amphibian makes him freaky for frogs, water-shy Stink becomes a swimming success.

Stink may be super smart, and Stink may be uber clever, but he s been in the Polliwog swim class frog-ever and he still can t bear to put his face in the water. Why would he want a geyser up his nose, on purpose? But then something weird happens: Stink starts to see frogs everywhere - in the locker room, in his boot, in the bathtub. And when a freaky blue frog licks his arm, his froggy senses start tingling! He has an urge to slurp up raisins (that look like flies). He can t wait to play in the rain and mud. He s a wiz at identifying frog calls. And he has become very interested in the local frog population. Could it be that Stink is turning into . . . the amazing Stink-Frog, fighter of slime? Pree-eep! Craw-awk!

  • Fans of Stink, rejoice! He's back in his eighth adventure!
  • 2013 is the year of the Stink relaunch - a new cover/jacket look is being introduced with this new novel and will encompass the entire backlist, paperback and hardback editions.
  • As with so many of the Judy Moody and Stink books, there are strong educational elements to be plumbed. This time, the lessons are about habitat and what the changing landscape means for the creatures we generally take for granted. A frog count (a la the annual Audubon bird count that takes place every New Years Day) and learning the calls of various frogs are included.
