This middle school age book was fun. I received it for free and voluntarily chose to review it. While it was fun with a lot of action, the characters lacked any real depth. I would have liked to see a little more. While it was centered on recycling and saving the world, I would have liked to have answers as to why. I would hope that this would make some of our teenagers think about it more. Because it was a little fun and a good subject matter, I've given this a 4* rating and I'll be sharing this with my grandchildren.
Why yes, I am an adult who reads children books.
I will be 80 and still reading picture books. It doesn't matter that books like this are targeted toward preteens or teenagers. I think it is sad if we get to a point in our life where we say "Well I'm XX now, can no longer enjoy that thing I used to enjoy..." It's fine if we naturally outgrow things of course, but don't force yourself to do so if you don't want to.
Judy Moody is a series I could have read when I was around the "right" age, not a preteen, but a teenager. I never read it because of pressure of trying to read things for my age or things that were above my reading level.
I was Judy's age once. It is fun to read about her silly adventures and put myself in her shoes. I never want to get to the point where I can't relate to younger (or older) characters.
Judy and her family are great. Kids of all ages, and kids at heart should get to know them.
*I read this twice. Once from the library and once provided by Netgally*
A cute, quick read.
Just like the first book in this series, it was a good read, but I didn't like it as much as the Judy Moody books. The events in the Stink books feel more superficial than those in the Judy Moody series. I did like that Judy appeared a little nicer in this book in comparison to the first one (and less animal cruelty).
This was a nice read.
