Description-

  • It's Backwards Day, so Judy Moody double-dares herself to become Queen of the Good Mood for one whole week. Can she do it?

    Will the real Judy Moody please stand up? In honor of Backwards Day, Judy Moody decides to turn that frown upside down, make lemonade out of lemons, and be nice to stinky little brothers. In fact, Judy becomes a NOT moody, cool-as-a-cucumber neat freak for one whole entire day. But when her combed hair, matching outfits, and good moods hang around for days after, her friends begin to worry. Could this smiley Judy be an imposter?

About the Author-

  • "Sometimes I think I am Judy Moody," says Megan McDonald, author of the wildly popular Judy Moody series, the Stink books, and the Sisters Club trilogy. "I'm certainly moody, like she is. Judy has a strong voice and always speaks up for herself. I like that."

    For Megan McDonald, being able to speak up for herself wasn't always easy. She grew up in a house full of books, as the youngest of five sisters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her father, an ironworker, was known to his coworkers as "Little Johnny the Storyteller." Every evening, the McDonalds gathered around the large, round dinner table to talk and tell stories, but Megan McDonald was barely able to get a word in edgewise. "I'm told I began to stutter," she says, leading her mother to give her a copy of Harriet the Spy and a small spiral notebook, so she could begin writing things down á la the young reporter Harriet.

    To date, Megan McDonald has penned more than sixty books for children and young readers, including the critically acclaimed Judy Moody series. These hilarious books have won numerous awards, ranging from a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year and an International Reading Association Children's Choice to the first-ever Beverly Cleary Children's Choice Award. "Judy has taken on a life of her own," the author notes, with millions of Judy Moody books in print worldwide. The feisty third-grader is highly popular with boys and girls, making for an enthusiastic base of fans who are among Megan McDonald's strongest incentives to keep writing the adventures of Judy Moody and her little brother, Stink, along with a bottomless well of ideas inspired by growing up with four older sisters.

    And—by popular demand—Judy Moody's little brother, Stink, gets his chance to shine in his own adventures! Megan McDonald says, "Once, while I was visiting a class full of Judy Moody readers, the kids, many with spiked hair à la Judy's little brother, chanted, 'Stink! Stink! Stink! Stink! Stink!' as I entered the room. In that moment, I knew that Stink had to have a book all his own." Now, giant jawbreakers, smelly sneakers, stinky corpse flowers, and 101 runaway guinea pigs join Mouse, Jaws, Toady, mood rings, an ABC gum collection, and operating on a zucchini in the everyday antics of Judy Moody's world.
    Megan McDonald has recalled some of her own childhood by writing about the warmth, humor—and squabbles—of three spunky sisters in the Sisters Club trilogy, wrapping up with Cloudy With a Chance of Boys. Megan McDonald lives and writes in northern California with her husband, a frequent collaborator.

  • DOGO Books mckenna123 - This is about Judy trying to be in a good mood for a whole week.her friends and her little brother Stink thinks she is a alien. I really like this book because it has a lot of humor. I also like it because Judy is a little more girly.I really like Judy Moody's books. But it was a little easy. Over all it was great!

    Back again for her 12th outing, Judy tries to take the "moody" out of her name, with mixed results.Everyone knows that Judy has a tendency to sink into bad moods at the slightest provocation. Yet after she celebrates Backwards Day at school by cleaning up her act and becoming a calm, serene soul, the experience goes so well that she privately vows to keep it up for an entire week. To combat her mood swings, Judy throws herself into finger knitting, a craft that can effectively distract her from her anger. Unfortunately, this brand-new Judy is so strange and different that her friends are convinced she must be an alien from another planet. Worse, her finger-knitting project grows so extensive that it threatens to take over the house. Happily, Judy hits on the perfect solution to all her problems, successfully fulfilling her vow and ending up with the craziest math project of all time. The delightfully flawed Judy's trials with being "good" will resonate with any child forced to summon a little self-control. Utterly appealing pen-and-ink art and situations readers can't help but enjoy are evidence for why Judy's adventures continue to be popular.Even new Moody fans will find diving into the series this late in the game a pleasure. (Fiction. 6-9)

    Grades 2-4 Inspired by the success of her school's Backwards Day, Judy dares herself to stay in a good mood for an entire week. That's seven days of a tidy room, neatly done hair, homework done early, and absolutely no roaring or stomping. Only her new obsession for finger knitting is keeping her from breaking her good mood challenge. Still, she manages to stay cheerful when her parents refuse to buy her more yarn. But this new Judy is so different and normalboring eventhat brother Stink and her friends are convinced she has been replaced by an alien. When Judy's knitting threatens to take over her house, she uses a giant ball of yarn to surprise the class in a stunt that reassures her friends that she is the same old Judy. McDonald's peppy writing, with an undercurrent of understanding and sympathy for irrepressible Judy's struggles, and Reynolds' energetic line drawings make for another winning entry in this popular series.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2014, American Library Association.)
