Read from the Book
Judy Moody marched into third grade on a plain old Thursday, in a plain old ordinary mood. That was before Judy got stung by the Queen Bee.Judy sat down at her desk, in the front row next to Frank Pearl."Hey, did you see Jessica Finch?" asked Frank in a low voice."Yeah, so? I see her every day. She sits catty-cornered behind me.""She's wearing a crown."Judy turned to look at Jessica, then whispered to Frank, "Where'd she get that? Burger Barn?""I don't know," said Frank. "Ask her. She says it's bejeweled.""Well, it looks be-dumb, if you ask me," said Judy, though secretly she admired the sparkling ruby-like gems."Hey, are those real rubies?" Judy asked Jessica."They're costume jewelry," Jessica said."Who are you dressing up as? The Queen of England?""No, I'm the Queen Bee," said Jessica. "I won the N. V. Spelling Bee on Saturday.""The envy spelling bee?" Judy asked. Judy didn't envy anybody who had to spell long words into a microphone with a million and one people staring bug-eyed at her. She knew those people were silently yelling FLUB IT UP because they wanted their own kid to win."Not envy. N. V. As in Northern Virginia.""Oh," said Judy. "Is that where you got the crown?""It's a tiara," said Jessica. "T-I-A-R-A. A tiara is a fancy crown like the Queen of England wears. Queen of the Bee has to know tons of definitions.""What word did you win for?" Judy asked. "Frank wants to know," she added, in case Jessica thought she was interested."Artichoke. It's a fourth-grade word."
