"Judy Moody was in a mood. Not a good mood. A bad mood. A mad-faced mood."

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.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Book Great Series! For a few years now, probably close to ten, I have been meaning to read a Judy Moody book. The covers and titles have always caught my attention, but whenever I was in the book store I was always after something else specific. It is my loss. Recently I received a review copy of Stink and the Midnight Zombie Walk one of the Stink Moody books and loved it. I have since tracked down all the Judy and Stink books and will be reading them soon. They have jumped to the top of my to-be-read pile of books. This first Judy Moody book was just as good as the Stink book and I am glad there are so many books to read about these two siblings. If the two I have read are samples of how good the rest will be, I have 21 more great books to read. The sections in the book are: Who's Who A Bad Mood Roar! Two Heads Are Better Than one My Favorite pet My Smelly Pet Doctor Judy Moody The T.P. Club The Worst Thing Ever Definitely the Worst Thing Ever The Funniest Thing Ever The Me Collage Band-Aids and ice Cream 10 Things You May Not Know About Megan McDonald 10 Things You May Not Know About Peter H. Reynolds This book was a wonderful, fun read. I made me laugh. It is a book I cannot wait to share with my children as they grow older. In this book Judy Moody wakes up in a bad mood and for the first day of Grade 3 the bad mood continues. Her first school project is to make a "Me Collage". The teacher provides some ideas but the project is up to the children. As the story progresses, Judy learns about herself, and about preconceived ideas she has about others. She makes a new friend and learns how to turn a bad thing into a new opportunity. It was a great read and I look forward to many more adventures with Judy, her friends and her family.

Read from the Book

When Judy Moody arrived in third grade, her teacher, Mr. Todd, stood by the door, welcoming everyone. "Hello there, Judy." "Hello, Mr. Toad," said Judy. She cracked herself up. "Class, please hang your backpacks on the hooks and put your lunches in the cubbies," said Mr. Todd. Judy Moody looked around the classroom. "Do you have a porcupine named Roger?" Judy asked Mr. Todd. "No, but we have a turtle named Tucson. Do you like turtles?" She liked turtles! But she caught herself just in time. "No. I like toads." Judy cracked up again. "Rocky, your seat is over by the window, and Judy, yours is right up front," said Mr. Todd. "I knew it," said Judy. She surveyed her new front-row desk. It didn''t have an armadillo sticker with her name on it. Guess Who sat across the aisle from her. Frank Eats-Paste Pearl. He glanced at Judy sideways, then bent his thumb all the way back, touching his wrist. Judy rolled her tongue like a hot dog back at him. "You like sharks too?" he asked, passing her a small white envelope with her name on it. Ever since they had danced the Maypole together in kindergarten, this boy would not leave her alone. In first grade, Frank Pearl sent her five valentines. In second grade, he gave her a cupcake on Halloween, on Thanksgiving, and on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Now, on the first day of third grade, he gave her a birthday party invitation. Judy checked the date inside
