Giggling Gumbles are cheerful little creatures who can be squashed into all sorts of shapes. They can't pop back into their proper shape unless helped. This makes the friendly Gumbles useful to the lazy Bottersnikes, who have some very nasty tricks planned.

No, it's... slime mold! Stink may be a super science geek, but even Dr. Stinkelstein is feeling freaked out about having a slime mold living and growing in his very own room. At Saturday Science Club, Stink learns that these one-celled organisms are smart enough to find their way out of mazes and gang up on food sources -- so who says they aren't smart enough to take over Stink's pets, Stink's room, Stink himself, and... the world? Vintage horror flicks meet classic Star Trek episodes as a wary Stink (with some help from Dr. Judy Moody) comes to know and love an unusual new pet in a hilarious adventure that sneaks in factoids and comics at each chapter's end.

Stink and the freaky frog freakout
Stink may be super smart, and Stink may be uber clever, but he s been in the Polliwog swim class frog-ever and he still can t bear to put his face in the water. Why would he want a geyser up his nose, on purpose? But then something weird happens: Stink starts to see frogs everywhere - in the changing room, in his boot, in the bathtub. And when a freaky blue frog licks his arm, his froggy senses start tingling! He has an urge to slurp up raisins (that look like flies). He can t wait to play in the rain and mud. He s a whiz at identifying frog calls. And he has become very interested in the local frog population. Could it be that Stink is turning into ... the amazing Stink-Frog, fighter of slime? Pree-eep! Craw-awk!

When Stink's parents win tickets for the whole family to sleep over at the aquarium (along with Stink's two best friends), it sounds like a science freak's dream come true. Stink loves the sea-creature scavenger hunt (Bat ray! Brain coral!), the jellyfish light show and the shiver of sand tiger sharks with razor-sharp teeth. And of course Stink is nuts about gross stuff - but after some spooky stories around the virtual campfire, can he fall asleep while thinking about the eating habits of the vampire squid? Especially Bloody Mary, the mutant, glowing Frankensquid that's supposed to be on the prowl?
