Judy Moody cannot believe her ears. There at the lunch table, a girl called Amy Namey is interviewing Judy's best friends, Rocky and Frank. Even worse, Amy is dressed like Nellie Bly, daredevil woman reporter, much like Judy's emulation of a certain woman doctor. Is this clipboard-carrying girl destined to be Judy's new best enemy? Or new best friend? Judy Moody finds some unexpected potholes on the path to friendship as Class 3T takes a whirlwind tour of the globe, investigating everything from tooth-brushing sticks in Yemen to an Italian "spider dance" along the way. Fans will cheer as Judy finally masters the challenge of making new friends and keeping the old — for sure and absolute positivo!

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh what a journey Jody Moody is awesome! I love her character, and her interactions with her friends and her family. The books in this series will make you laugh and look at the world a little differently. This book is a little different from most in the series, as it really focuses more closely on just Judy. There is a little less interaction with her family and her friends than in the other 6 books I have read in this series. The chapters are as follows: Rhyme Time Heebie-Jeebies Club Snub Nellie Bly Says Goodbye Bella Tarantella Fratellino Bratellino Addresses and Messes Pickle Chicle No-Talky Rocky vs. Judy Snooty Elf Schmelf Red-White-and-Green Machine Eatsa Pizza In this adventure, there is a new girl at school, Amy Namey. And she seems to be a lot like Judy Moody. At first Judy is jealous of Frank and Rocky's interactions with Amy, but soon the tables have turned and Judy upsets them by spending so much time with Amy. Judy upsets them so much, they stop talking to her and even refuse to help on a school group project. Judy works hard to make things up to them and help the two classes make it around the world in 8 and 1/2 days. I really enjoyed what Megan McDonald and Peter H Reynolds did in this book. It was different from the others in the series and as such we saw more development in Judy. It was another great read in an absolutely wonderful series.

Read from the Book

CHAPTER ONEThe girl had a notebook and a clipboard. The girl wore a blue plaid skirt like a school uniform, and not one but TWO watches. The girl had a pencil behind her ear. The girl looked very noticeable in her blue-green glasses.The girl came over to Judy Moody's lunch table and plopped herself down right beside Judy's friends Rocky and Frank.She, NOT Judy Moody, looked like she was in a reporter mood.Who was this important-looking, glasses-wearing girl, anyway? Judy wondered."Amy Namey, Girl Reporter," said the girl. "What's the scoop?""Um . . . Screamin' Mimi's chocolate mud?" asked Judy. "Not the ice-cream kind of scoop," said the girl. "The story kind of scoop. I'm a reporter," she said. "Like Nellie Bly, Daredevil Reporter."She, Judy Moody, could not believe her ears.Frank asked, "Is that like Elizabeth Blackwell, First Woman Doctor?" Judy leaned in closer."Check!" said the girl. She wrote something on her clipboard. "I'm from Ms. Valentine's class, 3V. Can I ask you a few questions? For my newspaper?""You have your own paper?" asked Frank Pearl."Sure!" said the girl. Just then, Super-Important Girl Reporter held out a ketchup-bottle microphone."What's your favorite school lunch?" she asked. "Quesadilla pizza, popcorn chicken, or French toast sticks?""French toast is breakfast," said Judy."Pizza!" screamed Rocky and Frank at the same time."Check!" said the girl. She checked the paper on her clipboard."I pack my lunch," said Judy."How many times a week should the cafe
