To start, Judy Moody doesn't have high hopes for third grade. Her new desk won't have an armadillo sticker with her name on it. Her new classroom will not have a porcupine named Roger. And with her luck, she'll get stuck sitting in the first row, where Mr. Todd will notice every time she tries to pass a note to her best friend, Rocky. An aspiring doctor, Judy does have a little brother who comes in handy for practicing medicine, a cool new pet, and a huge Band-Aid collection.
Judy also has an abundance of individuality and attitude, and when Mr. Todd assigns a very special class project, she really gets a chance to express herself! Megan McDonald's spirited text and Peter Reynolds's wry illustrations combine in a feisty, funny first chapter book for every kid who has ever felt a little out of sorts.
The mercurial Judy Moody will delight any kid who's known a bad mood or a bad day--and managed to laugh anyway.

Growing up, I loved reading Judy Moody books. And rereading them as an adult makes me more aware of why I love them so much. Simple, yet humorous, this book is filled with silly stories about new pets, obnoxious brothers, and friendship. What I really like about Judy's character is how strong-willed...
4.5 stars. I saw these pop up and I was just curious. Who is Judy Moody? Is she always Moody? After reading this I can honestly say that Judy is a great girl, and I laughed aloud during many of the parts in this book. Say hello to Judy Moody, say hello to her little brother (Stink) and her parents...
Oh, Judy Moody. I need to go back and reread this series.
The Possum has shared her books with me, and I like them more than I anticipated. Plus, illustrations by Peter Reynolds.
Great chapter book for the early reader
