The shortest kid in the second grade, James Moody, also known as Stink, learns all about the shortest president of the United States, James Madison, when they celebrate Presidents’ Day at school.


Fans of the Judy Moody series will be delighted to find that her little brother has his own book!  Stink is concerned about being the smallest boy in his class. Nothing to note, a nice story.

The class newt is accidentally lost down the drain, and the garbage disposal got turned on.


Stink is very worried about being short.  Mostly a positive relationship portrayed between Sink and his big sister.  Supportive family through Stink’s feelings about being short.
