KIRKUS REVIEW

On a class trip to the science museum’s Gross-Me-Out exhibit, Stink Moody’s skill at identifying smells earns him a new nickname, “The Nose,” and a chance to be the judge at a local stinky-sneakers contest. Fans of Judy Moody’s second-grade brother will be delighted by this third edition of his adventures, featuring familiar characters and plenty of new information about toilet water, corpse flowers and other smelly substances, as well as a surprising career opportunity. Who knew that NASA had a master sniffer? The narrative features plenty of banter between siblings and engaging language play. Short chapters, large type and Reynolds’s cheerful cartoon illustrations add to the appeal for the beginning readers but, like its predecessors, this should also be a popular read-aloud. (Fiction. 5-8)
