Judy Moody’s brother, Stink, gets his chance to star in this book by Megan McDonald and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds.

Then, one day, the ruler reads — can it be? — three feet, seven and three quarters inches! Is Stink shrinking? In Stink's first solo adventure, his special style comes through loud and strong — enhanced by a series of comic strips, drawn by Stink himself, which are sprinkled throughout the book. “Stink” was first published in Spring 2005.

Third in the successful “Ologies” books (“Dragonology” and “Egyptology”), this is more of an “open doors and pull tabs to reveal things” than a pop-up. Supposedly “discovered” in 1588, this remarkable text by history's most famous wizard, Merlin, is lavishly illustrated by four artists. "Wizardology"’s intricate design even conceals a series of hidden symbols that spell out a secret message when their code is deciphered. There are pull tabs with "magical" effects, attached booklets, a phoenix's feather, a scrap of Fairy Flag and more — all sandwiched between "crystal" gems embedded in the front and rear covers.
— “It’s funny and secret,” said Bob Belkins, owner of Belkins’ Books in Nashville. “Sells very well, and leads kids to the other ‘ologies’ — they want more.”
— “Wondrous book,” espoused Anita Faber, manager of Books, Books, Books in Memphis, Tenn. “The tweens really like it; it seems to speak right to them. Adults get into it, too.“
— “This is flying off the shelf,” reported Danny Sanchez, assistant manager of Seattle’s Barnes & Noble. “I see it staying strong all through 2006.”

— “This is the king of all pop-up books,” stated Marc Rasmusen, manager of Books A Million in Panama City, Fla. “No one can say ‘no’ to it. It’s simply amazing.”
— “This sells like mad,” Becky Aldridge, owner of The Book Kind in Minneapolis. “I’ve sold out twice already. This is a big hit.”
— “Robert Sabuda is a master of the pop-up book,” said Tom Minkowsky, co-owner of The Book Place in New York City. “His work is stunning.”
