Synopsis

Stink-O-Pedia 2: More Stink-y Stuff from A to Z by Megan McDonald

Thought Stink might run out of fun, cool, weird and wacky facts? Hardee-har-har! Make way for a second toe-jam-packed, can't-put-down Stink-O-Pedia!What mammal could fit fifty people on its tongue? Did you know it's impossible to snore in outer space? Or that the first lip balm was made of earwax? From B-for-brainy (take a quiz to prove your cat's a genius) to T-for-treasure hunts (learn the secrets of geocaching) to Z-for-zombie jokes (bad puns to wake the dead), this super-funny compendium is bursting with things to do, things to try and things that are just plain awesome to know. With a guide at the end cross-referencing Stink books with relevant entries, this is a must-have for Moody fans, reluctant readers and kids who are crazy for trivia, superlatives and other ephemera.

About the Author

Megan McDonald

As a child: “Sometimes I think I am Judy Moody,” says Megan McDonald, author of the award-winning Judy Moody books. “I’m certainly moody, like she is. Judy has a strong voice and always speaks up for herself. I like that.” Being able to speak up for herself wasn’t always easy. Megan grew up as the youngest of five sisters, in a house full of books in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her father, an ironworker, built bridges across the city and was known to his co-workers as ‘Little Johnny the Storyteller.’ Every evening at dinnertime, the McDonald family would gather around the kitchen table, talking and telling stories. But with four older sisters, Megan remembers barely being able to get a word in edgeways. “I’m told I began to stutter with the effort of trying to keep up,” she says. “That’s when my mother gave me a notebook, so that I could write down everything I wanted to say instead!”

Things you didn't know about Megan McDonald
1. She begins writing each book on a napkin.
2. Her favourite book as a child was Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh.
3. She is a lifetime member of the real Toad Pee Club!
4. When she was born the fifth girl in her family, the doctor yelled, “It’s a boy!” for a joke.
5. She loves ice cream so much (especially Screamin’ Mimi’s) that she once fell over chasing the ice cream van and had to have stitches!
6. She has two dogs, two horses, and fifteen wild turkeys that land on her roof to wake her up every morning.
7. The Rubber Hand Trick is the best joke she ever played on her sisters. Read the first book, Judy Moody, to find out just what it involves!
8. Her middle name is Jo… She once wanted to change her name to Megan Jo Amy-Beth McDonald so it would contain the names of all four Little Women in the book by Louisa May Alcott.
9. As a girl, she collected bugs, fancy toothpicks, scabs and Barbie doll heads!
10. When she worked at a bookstore, she once chased (and caught!) a burglar who stole two bags full of books and tried to get away on his bicycle!
