    When I picked up this book, I didn't realize that this Stink person is a character from the Judy Moody books. That doesn't really matter for most of the book, which is mainly non-fiction (aside from a seemingly pointless quiz about the fictional series of books). As non-fiction, though, it kind of fails. I came across numerous errors or exaggerations, and I can't get behind a children's book that doesn't do its research. It wasn't even difficult research to do.

I came across numerous errors or exaggerations, and I can't get behind a children's book that doesn't do its research. It wasn't even difficult research to do. On more than one occasion, I was so skeptical of the book's claims that I Googled them. And, what do you know? The book was wrong. A vomitorium was not a place where Romans used to vomit. Thomas Crapper did not invent the flush toilet. How many other mistakes are in this book? It obviously wasn't fact-checked. I'm also not a fan of the way the book encourages kids to pull pranks. In one, they have you emptying out half a tube of toothpaste (which is terribly wasteful) and replacing it with chocolate pudding. Have you ever heard the expression about putting toothpaste back into a tube? It's a saying for a reason! (Basically, good luck trying to get chocolate pudding into that tube.) Other pranks have kids putting whipped cream on other people's property (potentially damaging it) or painting their siblings' faces while they sleep. I just don't think these things are appropriate, and I certainly wouldn't want to encourage this type of behaviour. The book is full of all sorts of gross facts. They're even grosser if you're a vegan. It's absolutely amazing how many ways humans have come up with to exploit, abuse, and murder animals. The more disgusting the better! The explanation of jellied moose nose has a drawing of a moose with a bandage where its nose used to be; that's neither funny nor respectful. I wasn't impressed with this. I know there are lots of books out there for kids about disgusting stuff. I'll have to give one of them a try... because this one was a bust.

    Wow! I first picked this book up because of the funny title 'Stink it up! A guide to the gross, the bad and the smelly.' I thought it would be something funny to read to pass the time. And I was right and so much more! This book has some really gross and funny facts about almost anything and everything you can think of.The main aspect of writing craft Mcdonald used was writing with short, choppy sentences and a lot of exclamation marks.

She did a really good job at using this craft by capturing the readers attention. Although this book isn't your typical chapter book, it's great for students. They would be reading something extremely fun and entertaining to them, but also educational! By showing this book to kids you can show them that non-fictional books and writings can be fun to create and read too. If you write about what you want to and add your own style in the writing, it will be great! This could and will be a mentor text in my classroom for students. I think it would be a great starter for punctuation and to show the students how vital and necessary it is.

    OMG...this is such a boy book. Any boy into this type of stinky, gross stuff will eat this book up. I loved the recipes and the illustrations put the cherry on top of the creativity behind this book. Full of tidbits of gross information this book was hilarious. Then, to top it off, there is a game for the kids to play of something like "truth or dare". Absolutely priceless!!

    Students will love reading the gross facts in Stink it Up! The facts are short and written in easy to understand language. The illustrations by Peter Reynolds make the gross facts even more entertaining.

    Awesome This is funny and kind of stinky. I would not want to eat any of the edible insects in the world. Dung beetles are weird.
