Any kid who's ever been in a bad mood will relate to the feisty, funny, ever-changing Judy Moody. (Ages 6-10)

To start, Judy Moody doesn't have high hopes for third grade. Her new desk won't have an armadillo sticker with her name on it. Her new classroom will not have a porcupine named Roger. And with her luck, she'll get stuck sitting in the first row, where Mr. Todd will notice every time she tries to pass a note to her best friend, Rocky. An aspiring doctor, Judy does have a little brother who comes in handy for practicing medicine, a cool new pet, and a huge Band-Aid collection.
Judy also has an abundance of individuality and attitude, and when Mr. Todd assigns a very special class project, she really gets a chance to express herself! Megan McDonald's spirited text and Peter Reynolds's wry illustrations combine in a feisty, funny first chapter book for every kid who has ever felt a little out of sorts.

Megan McDonald is the creator of the popular and award-winning Judy Moody and Stink series. She is also the author of two Sisters Club stories and many other books for children. She lives in Sebastopol, California.

Peter H. Reynolds is the illustrator of the Judy Moody and Stink books and the author-illustrator of THE DOT, ISH, SO FEW OF ME, THE NORTH STAR, and ROSE'S GARDEN. He lives in Dedham, Massachusetts.

The book itself has a look as fresh as its heroine . . .The book opens . . . with a hilarious spread in pen-and-ink wash . . . the dialogue is spot-on . . . It's hard to imagine a mood Judy couldn't improve.
Publishers Weekly, starred review

...[T]his
beginning chapter book features large type; simple, expressive prose and
dialogue; and plenty of child-appealing humor.
Children will enjoy lively Judy and her
diverse hobbies and adventures with best-friend Rocky.
They'll also like the witty, detailed
drawings (especially the picture of Judy's unique collage, a nice activity
idea) . . . An entertaining story that portrays challenges and pleasures from
a kid's perspective, and shows how making the best of things can have
surprising rewards.
—Booklist

Changeable
skies arch over a third-grader's moodscape in this easy-reading chapter book
. . . Reynolds's black-and-white washes are perfectly placed to track Judy's
ups and downs . . .
Surefire fare for
Cleary, Kline, and Hurwitz fans.
—Kirkus Reviews

McDonald's
offbeat humor coupled with expressive black-and-white cartoonlike
illustrations make Judy, her family, and her friends both appealing and
realistic.
—The Horn Book Guide

Fans of
Beverly Cleary and the Amber Brown books should appreciate this fresh,
energetic series about an irresistibly willful third grader.
—FamilyFun

Judy is
just, well, intense, in that at-odds-with-the-whole-world way typical of
third graders . . . this large-type chapter book is immensely funny . . .
Fuming all the way, Judy Moody rules.
