Will Judy’s lucky penny lead her to the nation’s capital — or to third-grade C-A-L-A-M-I-T-Y? And what do her spelling-bee nemesis and a potbellied pig have to do with it?

The lucky penny in Judy Moody’s pocket sure does seem to be working. She can’t stop winning — at bowling, spelling, the unbeatable Prize Claw, everything! For sure and absolute positive, she’ll ride that wave of good fortune all the way to Washington, D.C. Watch out, District of Cool, here comes Judy Moody, the luckiest kid ever, until . . . oh, no! Her lucky penny just did a belly flop into a porcelain bowl of yucky, blucky UNluck. Has the coin’s magic gone kerflooey?Are some people, like Jessica Finch or Stink, destined to have all the luck, while she, Judy Moody, gets stuck with a yard full of three-not-four leaf clovers, a squealing potbellied pig in an elevator, and a squashed penny with cooties? ROAR!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book and series. Just when you think Judy Moody cannot get any better, it does. Including this book, there are 11 Judy Moody story books, 3 Judy Moody Activity books, 2 Judy Moody and Stink cross-over books and 9 Stink Moody books. For a series about one family to have 25 books and the authors to come up with more great ideas is amazing and wonderful all rolled up together. My children are just discovering these books and they love them. They love Judy and Stink, they love the illustrations and they find the stories hilarious. Even though they are nowhere near being able to read these books yet, they love having them read to them. In fact they are the only chapter books we read. And after we read them they love going back through the illustrations and telling the stories to each other. The chapters in this brilliant story are: The Luck Penny Good Luck x3 Planet Lucky The Bad-Luck Charm Uck Bluck Charm The District of Cool Finch-Face Freakout Judy Moody, Pig Sitter Pig in the City E-M-A-N-C-I-P-A-T-E Judy gets a lucky penny and it seems to be working. Things just keep going her way. Then when her luck seems to turn she gets rid of the penny. But once Stink has it, he seems to have good luck, so Judy wants it back. In a story with wishing, a possible trip to Washington D.C., spelling bees and pig sitting there, it is bound to be fun for the whole family. Another great story in an amazing series!
