She took her own temperature. With the fancy thermometer that beeped. It was not normal. It was not 98.6. Judy's temperature was 188.8! Judy's temperature was 00.0! Judy's temperature was beep-beep-beep-beep-beep. She, Judy Moody, had the temperature of an outer-space alien!

Judy Moody has a mood for every occasion, and now, she, Judy Moody, is in a medical mood! It's no secret that Judy wants to be like Elizabeth Blackwell, first woman doctor, when she grows up. So when Class 3T starts to study the Amazing Human Body, Judy can hardly wait to begin her better-than-best-ever third-grade projects: show-and-tell with something way rarer than a scab, a real-live ooey-gooey operation, and a cloning experiment that may create double trouble for Judy and her friends. RARE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Judy always delivers! This is about the tenth book in either Judy Moody or Stink Moody series that I have read. And boy was it fun! I actually read this while home sick myself, and my wife and children were sick also. This book made some of the stuff we were going through easier to take. The book focuses around Judy and her continued desire to be a Doctor when she grows up. Her class has a trip to the Emergency room to visit the Hospital with the other third grade class. But soon after that trip, Stink ends up sick and gets to stay home from school. Judy wants to help doctor him back to health but ends up catching the mumps herself. The chapters are: M.D. = A Moody Day M.D. = MeDullas and ManDibles M.D. = Mystery Dectective M.D. = A Million Dollars M.D. = Mucus Dermis M.D. = Mr. DryBones M.D. = Majorly Delicious! M.D. = Medical Doctor M.D. = Medical Disaster M.D. = Mumpty Dumpty M.D. = Most Definitely As we all know Judy can be moody at the best of times. Once she is sick, her mood becomes something even more, which for Judy is saying a lot. But through the help and support of her brother Stink, and her friends, things begin to turn around. This was another great book. The collaboration between McDonald and Reynolds is amazing, as is the way the story is complimented by the drawings and illustrations. The flow of the story and the way you can pick up any of these books and read it either in order, or out of order, is great. These truly are amazing books that children of all ages will enjoy reading together and that is my M.D. My Determination!

Read from the Book

PLIP! Judy Moody woke up. Drip, drip, drip went rain on the roof. Blip, blip, blip went drops on the window. Not again! It had been raining for seven days straight. Bor-ing!She, Judy Moody, was sick and tired of rain. Judy put her head under the pillow. If only she was sick. Being sick was the greatest. You got to stay home and drink pop for breakfast and eat toast cut in special strips and watch TV in your room. You got to read Cherry Ames, Student Nurse, mysteries all day. And you got to eat yummy cherry cough drops. Hey! Maybe Cherry Ames was named after a cough drop!Judy took out her mom’s old Cherry Ames book and popped a cough drop in her mouth anyway."Get up, Lazybones!" said Stink, knocking on her door. "Can’t," said Judy. "Too much rain.""What?""Never mind. Just go to school without me.""Mom, Judy’s skipping school!" Stink yelled.Mom came into Judy’s room. "Judy, honey. What’s wrong?""I’m sick. Of rain," she whispered to Mouse."Sick? What’s wrong? What hurts?" asked Mom."My head, for one thing. From all that noisy rain.""You have a headache?""Yes. And a sore throat. And a fever. And a stiff neck.""That’s from sleeping with the dictionary under your pillow," said Stink. "To ace your spelling test.""Is not.""Is too!""See, look. My tongue’s all red." Judy stuck out her Cherry-Ames-cough-drop tongue at Stink.Mom felt Judy’s head. "You don’t seem to have a fever.""Faker," said Stink. "Come back in five minutes," said Judy. "I’ll have a fever by then.""Faker, faker, faker," said Stink.If only she had measles. Or chicken pox. Or . . . MUMPS! Mumps gave you a headache. Mumps gave you a stiff neck and a sore throat. Mumps made your cheeks stick out like Humpty Dumpty. Judy pushed the cough drop into her cheek and made it stick out, Humpty-Dumpty style."Mumps!" said Dr. Judy. "I think I have the mumps! For real!""Mumps!" said Stink. "No way. You got a shot for that. A no-mumps shot. We both did. Didn’t we, Mom?""Yes," said Mom. "Stink’s right.""Maybe one mump got through.""Sounds like somebody doesn’t want to go to school today," said Mom."Can I? Can I stay home, Mom? I promise I’ll be sick. All day.""Let’s take your temperature," said Mom. She took the thermometer out of the case. "Cat hair?" said Mom. "Is this cat hair on the thermometer?""She’s always making Mouse stick out her tongue and taking the cat’s temperature," said Stink.Mom shook her head and went to wash off the thermometer. When she came back, she took Judy’s temperature. "It’s 98.6," said Mom. "Normal!""Faker, fakey, not-sick, big fat faker," said Stink."At least my temperature’s normal," said Judy. "Even if my brother isn’t.""Better get dressed," said Mom. "Don’t want to be late.""Stink? You’re a rat fink. Stink Rat-Fink Moody. That’s what I’ll call you from now on.""Well, you’ll have to call me it at school ’cause you don’t get to stay home." Judy stuck out her cherry-red, no-mumps tongue at Stink.She was down in the dumps. She had a bad case of the grumps. The no-mumps Moody Monday blues. She, Judy Moody, felt like Mumpty Dumpty! Mumpty Dumpty without a temperature, that is.
