The third book in Megan McDonald's wonderfully goofy Judy Moody series will leave fans wondering whether the most irrepressible third-grader in Class 3T just might have ESP. (That's either Extra Special Powers, or Extra-Special Skink Powers--in the case of skink-hunting with Judy's brother Stink.) Our soon-to-be-psychic heroine slurps down seven bowls of cereal one morning before finding what she seeks: "A ring! A silver ring with an oogley centre. A mood ring!" Testing out her possibly prescient ring-powers, though, requires all sorts of experimentation--and working through some "burnt-toast" black moods before transforming completely into "Madame M for Moody."Judy remains her ebullient self throughout this third instalment, despite "a blucky old math-test," a run-in with her self-assured rival from the last book ("Jessica Finch probably ate fractions for breakfast: 1/4 glass of orange juice, 1/2 piece of toast, 3/4 jar of strawberry jelly!") and a spelling test that doesn't quite produce the grade she predicts. ("Judy didn't see why tor-tee-yah had any l's at all. And zig and zag seemed like two words to her. Who wrote this dictionary anyway? Mrs Merriam and Mr Webster were going to hear from her.") But by far the biggest surprise that Judy Moody struggles to predict is what a visit from the mysterious crayon lady Ms Tater might really mean. And why is Mr Todd acting so weird? Could her predictions prove prophetic once again? Might there really be little Tater-Todds in her teacher's future? (Ages 6 to 10) --Paul Hughes, Amazon.com

Loved it! I am a huge fan of the Judy Moody books. They are easy to read, simple yet fun. Each one is filled with hilarious adventures. I love Judy's character and that she is not afraid to be herself. The series shows young girls that it is okay to have other moods besides happy. A great continuati...
Yay, Judy Moody was fun again! After a very disappointing last book, I am delighted to say that I really liked this one again. Sure, Judy wasn't always fun or nice at times, at times she was downright annoying and bratty, but in overall it was a big improvement from the impressionable girl from th...
This book was well written, the story flowed nicely but what is it with children's literature and annoying, know-it-all little girls?At least this author gave the adults enough control to ensure that Judy Moody wasn't out of control but why can't authors create pleasant little girls who have adventu...
