Hello! Thanks for clicking. I'm Jude Watson, and I write for kids. It's the best job in the world.As a writer, I wear two hats. As Judy Blundell I write for Young Adults, and I won the National Book Award for my novel, WHAT I SAW AND HOW I LIED.I write for middle-graders while wearing my Jude Watson hat, which is a bit more colorful. Maybe it even has a spinning propeller on top. I love to write mystery-adventures with thrilling twists and oddball characters and kids who find themselves in impossible situations doing incredible things.I do all this from a chair, in a little room, in a not-big house, in a small town on Long Island. I like to read and I like to draw (badly) and my idea of excitement is to lace up my sneakers and walk to the harbor and back. I'm a nervous flyer and though I am respectful of the physics of modern aviation I also secretly suspect that it is only the unified belief of passengers that tons of metal can hurtle through the air that keeps a plane in flight. I am also not terribly comfortable on suspension bridges. And don't even ask me to go on a ferris wheel.I am listing these fears just to clue you in: I'm a physical coward. I'm also a creature of habit. Once in awhile I go a little crazy and take a different route to the grocery store.Still, I'll throw incredible amounts of danger at my characters. And I'll cackle maniacally while I do it.Other random facts: During deadline periods I am deeply committed to popcorn and apples.Every summer I go to Cape Cod, and every summer I wish I had a whole month there. I never do.I am waiting for the day I'll see someone reading a book of mine in an airport or a train or a diner. I will most likely embarrass myself by cavorting and singing "That's ME!"If you want to learn more about me or take a look at my books, visit my website, judewatsonbooks.com. Until then, happy reading!

Welcome to the wonderful world of books, where kids can steal jewelry, be good at it, get away with it, avoid any consequences for breaking the law, and still be considered the good guys. That's what happens in Loot--and I loved it! There's much fun to be had in this one, and the action and plot s...

Kind of an odd ending to the series, though I suppose it's mostly meant to tie into the following one with Anakin. Anyway, not much going on here save some effective creepy bits, no one noticing that Anakin is slowly drifting to the Dark Side, not even Qui-Gon who seems to be haunting Obi-Wan. If yo...

Nice end to the regular series, with a return to the tropes and angst from the early series, and a focus on the changing relationship between Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan. They connected via the Force and had a lightsaber duel that was actually about feelings. This what I'm here for, and I appreciated a last...

Still way too much angsty Qui-Gon, but at least the plot was interesting, and they seem to have wrapped up the manpain arc. Hopefully. It was about four books too long anyway. I liked the main character a lot, but they killed off too many secondary female characters. All in all, this series is loosi...
