The book that started it all--now in paperback!

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

Judy Moody doesn't have high hopes for third grade. But she does have an abundance of individuality and attitude, and when Mr. Todd assigns the class a special Me Project, she really gets a chance to express herself! Megan McDonald's spirited text and Peter Reynolds's wry illustrations will delight any kid who's known a bad mood or a bad day - and managed to laugh anyway.

Judy Moody is starting third grade and she is in a mood—a very bad mood! In fact, she isn’t excited to start school at all until her teacher assigns the class a special “Me Project” where Judy can really express herself. Ages 6-12.

A funny read, excellent for big sisters and reluctant readers. Judy's a bit too sassy for my tastes -- but kids do love her.

My favourite part was that her teacher left.
The best character was her brother.

Yet another kids book series that everyone should read, preferably when they're in elementary school. But if you haven't read it yet, check it out. The firs book you can probably get through pretty quick.

Judy Moody is in a mood. It's the first day of school and she is separated from her best friend Rocky. He gets to sit in the back of the class while forced to sit at the front, next to Frank "Eats Paste" Pearl. To make matters worse, Frank invites Judy to his birthday party, something Judy is not really wanting to do.

And so starts the first instalment of the Judy Moody series, focusing on a tom boy heroine who is not afraid to play jokes on her brother and hang out with boys. Good for the non-princess girls in your life.

Read this book in the third grade. Hated it with a passion. I'm sure I would have appreciated it more had I read it in my Grade 1 Junie B. Jones phase. By grade 3 I had moved on to more "sophisticated literature".
