Back Cover Summary

In this chapter book with black-and-white illustrations throughout, Fanboy and Chum Chum star in two hilarious adventures based on popular episodes of the hit Nickelodeon TV show!

In “Fanboy Stinks,” Fanboy refuses to bathe in order to set a not-bathing record, but his stinky right hand comes to life and threatens to rob the school’s charity bake sale! And in “Night Morning,” Chum Chum enjoys the hours between night and day. Fanboy invites their classmates to join in celebrating Night Morning, but is surprised when the class isn’t as excited as they are.

Facts in the book

  • "Bacteria love to grow in dark, damp places -- like feet and armpits. P-U!" (page 4)
  • "People can recognize about 10,000 different odors. That is a lot! And the ones they can't recognize, they don't want to know about!" (page 20)
  • "When you don't wash, your sweat stays on your body, mixing with the bacteria on your skin to give it that delicious foul scent. Best thing to do is not wait for your clothes to come to life -- wash up! (page 24)
  • "Some people get paid to smell stuff. Laboratories hire them when they are testing a new product like shampoo or deodorant. Too bad no one gets paid to be smelly!" (page 24)
  • "Your sense of smell is weakest in the morning; your ability to smell gets better as the day goes on. So 'morning breath' would actually smell worse if it happened at night!" (page 24)
  • "Did you know that no one smells the same odor in the same way? So a rose or a piece of blue cheese may smell nicer to some people than to others. Find something that smells really bad, and see if your friends think so too. Go ahead, they'll love this game!" (page 29)
  • "1 in 1,000 people cannot smell butyl mercaptan, the stinky smell of skunks. Good for them. Bad for those of us who are among the 999 who can!" (page 36)
  • "Chum Chum isn't the only one who knows about Night Morning. So do owls, cats, bats, coyotes, opossums, and raccoons. That's because they're nocturnal. That means they are up at night and asleep during the day. Like Man-Arctica. How's that for science?" (page 61)
  • "The moon rises when the sun is still out. Look closley and you can see the sun and the moon at the same time of day. It's kind of like Night Morning. Only without a subzero hero." (page 78)

Jokes in the book

  • "What did one eye say to the other eye?" "Between you and me, something smells." (before page 1)
  • "What did the judge say when the skunk showed up?" "Odor in the court!" (page 6)
  • "What do you call a witch's chant that causes a terrible odor?" "The smell spell." (page 8)
  • "What do you call someone who insists on smelling everything?" "Nosy." (page 36)
  • "What did the veterinarian say when someone brought her a sick skunk?" "Sometimes this job really stinks." (page 42-43)
  • "What time is it when you wake up in the middle of the night?" "Time to go back to sleep." (page 48)
  • "Knock knock." "Who's there?" "Hoo." "Hoo who?" "Hoo hoo. I'm an owl. Want to do Night Morning with me?" (page 62)
  • "When does Man-Arctica get cold feet?" "When he walks around brrrr-footed." (page 67)
  • "Knock knock." "Who's there?" "Night." "Night who?" "Night. Morning will be here soon!" (page 68)
  • "What is the name of Man-Arctica's mother's sister?" "Aunt-Arctica." (page 77)
  • "What do you get when you cross Man-Arctica with a vampire?" "Frostbite." (page 78)


  • Kyle appears for the first time in the illustrations of this book.
  • Some illustrations of Fanboy and Chum Chum in the "Night Morning" chapter have them in their PJ's rather than their normal clothes, and Kyle has on his regular clothes instead of his PJ's and headgear, possibly to make the story in the book more age appropriate.

Differences between the book and the episodes
