Stink and the Ultimate Thumb-Wrestling Smackdown

Series: Stink
by Megan McDonald Illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds

Stink Needs a Sport That Will Lead Him to Victory!

Full of funny wordplay and comics, this book has Stink showing off some crazy karate kicks, tricky thumb-wrestling moves, and serious mind control to pass PE!

Stink is a genius, but when it comes to PE, brains don't matter. That's how Stink ended up with his first-ever unsatisfactory on a report card. Now the PE coach wants Stink to prove he can get physical, or he'll fail! Stink's parents think playing a sport will help him improve his grade, but what kind of sport can a self-proclaimed couch potato play?
