Stink and the Great Guinea Pig Express by Megan McDonald

Published: 2008

Genre: children’s chapter fiction

Length: 118 pages

Setting: present time, East Coast

Interest: It’s the fourth book that features Stink. The book has lots of pictures within the story and large type, so it doesn’t take long to read. There are also a series of Stink’s Furry Facts within the story.

Summary: Webster, Sophie, and Stink (the main characters) find 101 guinea pigs in the Great Wall of Cereal Boxes they are building. They go to Fur and Fangs, the local pet shop, to see what to do with the guinea pigs. Fur and Fangs suggest selling the guinea pigs to people on the East Coast, so the friends end up converting a van into Squeal on Wheels in order to do that. Their first stop was Bull Run Castle, where they sell their first six guinea pigs. Webster, Sophie, and Stink continue to sell guinea pigs down the coast until they end up at Mt. Trashmore in Virginia Beach where they sell the rest of the guinea pigs. Stink keeps one for himself.

Final thoughts: A very exciting book because of the travel and adventure. The pictures explained a lot of what was happening in the story. I will read more in this series.
