The Incredible Shrinking Kid
author: Megan McDonald
illustrator: Peter H. Reynolds
Every morning, Judy Moody measures Stink and it's always the same: three feet, eight inches tall. Stink feels like even the class newt is growing faster than he is. Then, one day, the ruler reads—can it be?—three feet, seven and three quarter inches! Is Stink shrinking? He tries everything to look like he’s growing, but wearing up-and-down stripes and spiking his hair aren't fooling anyone. But while he can’t ask James Madison—the shortest person to ever serve as President of the United States—for advice, Stink can still picture himself with superpowers to overcome his height—and the teasing of a bossy big sister!
Judy Moody’s brother, Stink, gets to stand tall and shine in the first of his own series. Ta-da!
