Judy Moody is in a mood. Not a good mood. And definitely NOT a math mood. The substitute teacher in Class 3T thinks Judy's math skills need improving. So Judy has to start meeting with a math tutor. Does this mean flash cards? Does this mean baby games? Does this mean school on weekends? But when Judy meets her tutor — a sick-awesome college student with an uber-funky sense of style — and gets a glimpse of college life, Judy's bad math-i-tude turns into a radical glad-i-tude. Pretty soon, Judy's not only acing her math class; she's owning it. Time to say good-bye to Judy Moody, old skool third-grader, and say hello to Miss College! Small-tall upside-down backward non-fat capp with extra whip, anyone?

Customer Reviews of Judy Moody Goes To College


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book amazing series. This was the third book in the Judy Moody series and the eighth book with Stink and Judy Moody in it that I have read. I love the characters. The writing is wonderful. The illustrations are amazing. Together Megan and Peter have created some wonderful books to be shared by the whole family. One of the greatest strengths of these books is that even though there are now 23 books between the Judy Moody books, the Stink Moody books and the two cross-over books, they can be read in almost any order. Some of the books make reference to events in earlier books but never to the extent that they need to be read in order. You can pick up any of the books and will have a great read in your hands. In this book Mr. Todd has gone away to Italy for a teachers' convention. Judy does not get along with the new teacher and soon she is in need of tutoring in Math. So her parents make arrangements for her to get some help at the local college. So Judy Moody goes to College, specifically Cononial College, where she meets her tutor Chloe Canfield or c Squared! The chapters in this volume are: Who's Who Math-i-tude Mom-and Dad-i-tude A New Attitude Brat-i-tude Not-So-Bad-i-tude Art-i-tude Cat-i-tude Flunk-i-tude Grat-i-tude Glad-i-tude Judy Moody's Not-Webster's New World College Dictionary, First Edition While hanging out at College, Judy develops some new lingo, a new fashion sense and soon she is starting to annoy most of the people in her life with her 'at college' statements. But things might turn around. You will need to read to find out what type of mood Judy Moody ends the story with. This was one of my favorite books so far in these series. It was a great read and I highly recommend it.

Read from the Book

Math-i-tudeWhen Judy Moody got to school on Monday, she had a new teacher. Her new teacher was called a sub (not the sandwich). Her new teacher was called Mrs. Grossman. Exactly three things were wrong with that. (1) Mrs. Grossman was NOT gross. (2) Mrs. Grossman was NOT a man. (3) Mrs. Grossman was NOT Mr. Todd.Judy was the first to raise her hand. "Where’s Mr. Todd?""I'm sure Mr. Todd told everyone on Friday that he was going to a special teacher conference.""I wasn't here Friday," said Judy."He's going to learn to be a better teacher," said Jessica Finch."But Mr. Todd's already a great teacher," said Judy."Maybe he's getting a special teacher award," said Rocky."Where did he go?" Judy asked. "And when will he be back?"The others joined in. "Are you going to read us Catwings? Mr. Todd always reads us Catwings. And Catwings Return.""Are you going to take us on field trips? Mr. Todd always takes us on field trips.""Are we still Class 3T? Or are we Class 3G now?""Mr. Todd is in Bologna, Italy," said Mrs. Grossman.SHEESH. Life was no fair. Judy liked baloney (the sandwich). Judy liked Italy. She even knew a special dance from Italy—the tarantella. Mr. Todd was probably in the Land of Baloney right now, dancing like a tarantula, while they were stuck in the Land of Multiplication, learning boring old times tables.She, Judy Moody, did not like third grade, Class 3T-that-was-now-3G, without Mr. Todd.Judy Moody's new teacher came from New England. She did not talk like Mr. Todd. She talked funny, with a lot of extra r's. Judy Moody's new teacher did not wear cool glasses like Mr. Todd. She wore glasseshanging from a chain around her neck. She did not even smell like Mr. Todd. She smelled like she took a bath in P.U. perfume.Judy Moody's new teacher put up a tent in the back of the room with a sign that said ATTITUDE TENT. Judy wondered what attitude they had to be in to get to go camping.And . . . Judy Moody's new teacher was cuckoo for candy. She gave out candy for good behavior to everybody (minus Judy, because she was in a mood). She even gave out candy for the right answers in math. Pretty soon, the whole class was going to have math cavities. Except for Judy.Today, Mrs. Grossman was talking about measure. Quarts and gallons and barrels and hogsheads. She tried to make it sound like math was a barrel of fun. But Judy, for one, did not give a pig's ear abouthogsheads.Mrs. Grossman wore ten gallons of perfume. Mrs. Grossman gave out twenty hogsheads of candy.Instead of listening, Judy played with her watch. Her brand-new, fancy-dancy, robin's-egg-blue, glow-in-the-dark Ask-a-Question Watch 5000, complete with predict-the-future answers and screen saver.Blah, blah, blah, said Mrs. Grossman. Rounding numbers up, rounding numbers down. Judy estimated that rounding did not make math one bit easier.Judy pressed some buttons. A nightlight blinked. A dual-time button gave the time in TWO countries so a person did not have to wear two different watches.Scribble, scribble. Mrs. Grossman scratched on the board for a math-ternity.Judy pressed the big green questionmark button.Rare! It was just like the Magic 8 Ball. Ask the watch a question, press the glow-in-the-dark green button, and it gave you mystery answers.Is Mrs. Grossman cuckoo for math?YOU BET.Is Mrs. Grossman ever going to give me candy?CAN'T TELL.Am I going to college someday?LOOKS GOOD.Is Mr. Todd ever coming back?HAZY."Judy? Did you hear the question?"Judy did not hear the question. So Judy did not know the answer.Was it 77? 88? 99? Gallons? Bathtubs? Barrels? Pigs' heads?Judy blurted the only answer that sprang to mind."Hazy!" she called out._______JUDY MOODY GOES TO COLLEGE by Megan McDonald. Copyright © 2008 by Megan McDonald.
