Stink is the shortest person in his family. He's also the shortest person in Class 2D. And if things keep going the way they have been, he may be the shortest person in the world—the reigning king of Shrimpsville.

Mom and Dad tell him that if he eats his peas and drinks his milk, he'll shoot up. But he doesn't. And when his sister Judy measures him on the Shrimp-O-Meter, it's even worse than he thought. He's actually shrinking!

In the cartoon that plays in his mind, he's able to take down the horrible Shrink Monster that's attacking Moodyville. But reality is a whole different story.

Then things get worse.

When his name is drawn in a raffle, Stink is chosen to take the class's pet newt home for the weekend. And before he knows it, the little amphibian goes down the drain in the kitchen sink.

Now Stink wishes he could disappear completely instead of just shrinking away.

Will he find Newton before Monday morning? Will this nightmare stunt his growth forever? Read about the long and the short of it in this laugh-out-loud book.
