* *   Reviewed by Hilary Williamson

The Big Stink is the fourth (following My Rotten Life, Dead Guy Spy and Goop Soup) in David Lubar's hilariously horrible Nathan Abercrombie, Accidental Zombie series.

Nathan became a zombie after his genius friend Abigail offered her neurobiologist Uncle Zardo's emotion killer to help Nathan deal with rejection. Later, Nathan was recruited by a man from BUM (Bureau of Useful Misadventures) as a zombie spy and went on a mission against RABID (Raise Anarchy by Inciting Disorder).

Now, as The Big Stink opens, school stinks - literally! The building has developed a 'dangerous mold spore problem' and fifth grade is crammed into a lower Elementary school first-grade classroom along with a bunch of eighth-graders, including the school bully's even meaner big brother Ridley.

But that's not the only bad smell around Nathan. His extremities are starting to rot, his odor is 'a dead giveaway', and when he gets emotional, he's a real stink bomb. Of course his friends have his back and, together, they work something out. Looks like they'll be working together in the next episode too, going undercover at RABID. Should be a real yuckfest!
