My first introduction to either Megan McDonald or Peter H Reynolds were the Judy Moody and Stink books. I have since read all the books in both of those series and most of the other books by both Megan the Author and Peter the illustrator.  After more than 30 books in this series it is still highly entertaining. I gave up on Xanth long before that and there are few series that keep me that long especially if written by one author. That is a testament to the craft of both McDonald and Reynolds. I still get excited when I find out there is another books in one of the Moody series. And this one the ninth Stink Moody book did not disappoint. 

This story begins with Stink trying to stay up because his parents were out at a charity auction and he cannot wait to find out what they won. And they have bid on and won a sleepover for them and a friend at the local aquarium. But from the get go Judy is bugging Stink that he does not like sleepovers, even at their grandma's.  When the big day comes The Moody's, Mom, Dad, Judy  and stink along with Webster head to the sleepover. When they get there the meet up with Sophie of the Elves. There is an amazing scavenger hunt, a replica megalodon fin, shark feeding and so much more. A virtual campfire and of course ghost stories or in this case creepy Frankensquid story about Bloody Mary! Thor in a few pranks and we have a recipe for a great adventure.

This is yet another great read from McDonald and Reynolds. And now my kids are old enough that we have started reading these books together so it is fun for the whole family. In the Moody's universe we now have Judy Moody, Stink Moody Judy Moody and Stink, and a new series called Judy moody and Friends. And I can say they are all great books in amazing series, check them out for you and the young readers in your life.
