Stink and Webster are about as excited as a couple of zombies having scrambled brains for breakfast. Only one week to go till the latest Nightmare on Zombie Street book comes out! They plan to be the first ones in line to buy it—and to join the town's Midnight Zombie Walk!


That's not all. Reading the book will count towards their school's One Million Minutes of Reading goal. If they reach it, the principal will reveal what's in the Mystery Box outside the front office!

So the boys have to get that book. But each one costs $12.99, and they don't have the money.

Stink has a plan—a garage sale. But nobody buys anything. On to Plan B—and it's really putrid. A smellatorium! Step right up and sniff some zombie farts and B.O. and zits—only 50 cents a whiff!

Will they raise the money? What's inside the Mystery Box? What will the Zombie Walk be like? The answers to all of these questions are ridiculous. Laugh out loud and wake the undead with this funny—and stinky—read.

About this Series

Creative, curious second grader Stink Moody spends his time scheming, drawing comics, and exploring the grosser side of life. Like his older and much bossier sister, Judy, Stink puts his own personal stamp on whatever he does, from finding ways to look taller to becoming a professional smell-tester. A great pick for early chapter-book readers.

Editorial Reviews

"Gross, creepy, and hilarious."—Booklist

"McDonald's feel-good tone is deeply encouraging for readers to get up and do [a zombie walk] for themselves because it looks like so much darned fun, while the sub-message—that reading grows 'strong hearts and minds,' as well as teeth and bones—is enough of a vital interest to the story line to be taken at face value."—Kirkus Reviews
