Gr 2-4-Stink is in the Pollywog swim class. Naturally, Judy is a shark. Stink just can't put his head under water. He doesn't trust the stuff. However, his obsession with frogs may change all that. Stink is soon involved in learning frog songs, doing a frog count, and finding frogs pretty much everywhere he turns. There are even frogs with deformities-mutant frogs due to environmental issues. When a strange blue frog licks him, his froggy senses begin tingling. Is he turning into a frog himself? This is another light-hearted Stink adventure, stuffed full of information about east coast frogs, and filled with Stink's imaginary adventures as well as his real ones. Barbara Rosenblat reads the latest title (Candlewick, 2013) in McDonald's series with great enthusiasm, creating voices for each character. This is a fun presentation that will please fans of the series.-Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary, Federal Way, WA (c) Copyright 2013.
