When Stink buys a huge jawbreaker that doesn't break his jaw, he writes to the manufacturer – and receives 21,280 jawbreakers for his trouble! Soon he's so obsessed with getting free stuff that he misses an envelope in the mail pile, until his best friend starts looking as mad as a hornet.

As a delightful bonus for both teachers and kids, thirty-six common idioms – from "two heads are better than one" to "a leopard can t change its spots" – are sprinkled throughout the story; seven of the idioms are humorously illustrated by Stink, and all are listed at the end to inspire a search for idioms that's more fun than a barrel of monkeys!
