Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 01/01/2010 Astrophysics facts combine with everyday second-grade school experiences in this lively chapter book in the Stink series. Shocked to hear the scientific fact that Pluto has been declared too small to be a planet, Stink stands up to both grown-up scientists and other kids when he starts a campaign to let Pluto back into the solar system. He even makes bumper stickers that read “Honk if you love Pluto.” The funny words (“double freaky-deaky”) and silly scenarios, illustrated in Reynolds’ wry, informative black-and-white drawings, make for a fast read about the triumph of the little guy and the wonders of the universe. - Copyright 2010 Booklist.

School Library Journal - 02/01/2010 PreS-Gr 3— In this installment, Judy Moody's brother sticks up for Pluto, as it has unfairly (in his estimation) been demoted to dwarf planet status. Stink, defender of all things small, accepts the challenge of trying to convince his classmates that Pluto should still be considered a real planet while his nemesis, Riley Rottenberger, argues the opposite. The story is predictable but sweet as the smaller things in life are championed. Stink is an entertaining character and his audience will appreciate his jokes. The series of solar-system comics are likely to pull reluctant readers into the story while offering fun trivia about the solar system—including Pluto. A fun addition to a popular series.—Elizabeth Swistock, Jefferson Madison Regional Library, Charlottesville, VA - Copyright 2010 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
