The mercurial Judy Moody will delight any kid who's known a bad mood or a bad day—and managed to laugh anyway.

"Judy Moody was in a mood. Not a good mood. A bad mood. A mad-faced mood."

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.

About the Author

Megan McDonald grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with four older sisters, and she says that most of the stories in Judy Moody "grew out of anecdotes about growing up with them." In fact, she made Judy the oldest sister because she "wanted to see what it's like to be in charge!" Megan McDonald is the author of numerous children's books and lives with her husband in Sebastopol, California.

Peter Reynolds is an award-winning animator, artist, author, Web site creator, and educator. Peter says he felt an immediate connection to Judy Moody because, "having an 11-year-old daughter, I have witnessed firsthand the adventures of a very independent-minded girl." Peter Reynolds lives in Dedham, Massachusetts.

i am 10 and i found this an easy read. depending on your reading level this may become boring. i read this on a bet. i had to read all the judy moody books in a week. since my teacher thinks i should be reading more mature books, i also think this is somewhat boring. if you like goofy and silly stories i recomend you read this. if you are more of the serious type, this book may become annoying.

I read this because my kids read it and I like to know what they are reading and to be able to discuss it with them. It was enjoyable with plenty of smiles and chuckles. A good read for both parents and children.

Best Book Ever! Dont listen to those stinkin' bad rewiews please. ROAR! I HATE THOSE BAD REWIEWS FOR JUDY MOODY BOOKS!!!!! Anyway, this book has a great sence of humor! And it teaches you how to solve problems that happen every once in a while; life problems. And Magan McDondand spent MONTHS on writing this book! And maybe even more on the other ones!!! So, if you have a rewiew with bad words, keep it to yourself. nobidy wants to hear curses in a rewiew. there are children like me on this nook. - an unknown ALMOST third grader

Judy was in a bad mood and taking it out on everyone. Sometimes someone did something she liked and it put her in a good mood until something happened she didn't like then she was back in a bad mood. I enjoyed this book. It was funny and the illustrations were great. I like the world building here. As an adult I would enjoy revisiting Judy's world. I liked Stink (what a name) and Rocky. I also thought it was good that Judy had to revise her opinion about Frank Pearl! As I buy this series for a great niece I know I'll be reading them first!
