by Megan McDonald, illustrated by Peter Reynolds
Meet Judy Moody, a third grader with plenty of attitude. She has moods to fit every occasion and special faces she makes to go with them. Of course, her mom and dad and little brother Skink are used to it. Even her best friend Rocky knows when she's having one of her moody days. But Judy is also very creative, too, and when something catches her interest she gives it her all.
This delightful series by Megan McDonald is loaded with laughs and moments of wisdom as readers follow Judy through her oddball adventures. The stories deal with family life, feelings, and friendship. From collecting bandaids, to entering contests, to living in a tree to make her point about the environment, life with Judy Moody is never dull.
