Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-4–Judy Moody's individuality is threatened when she meets fellow third-grader Amy Namey. Not only do they have first and last names that rhyme, but they also idolize pioneering women and have quirky collections. Just when the two strong personalities seem destined to collide, they hit it off. Much to the chagrin of Amy's best friends, Rocky and Frank, the girls join the My-Name-Is-a-Poem Club and become inseparable. When the entire third grade starts an assignment that will take them Around the World in Eight Days, Judy's fascination with her new friend sparks a project-threatening feud with which many readers will identify. This book gives a humorous and familiar peek at the world through the eyes of a precocious third grader. It is filled with original, yet true-to-life characters who will make readers wish for a friend like Amy. The silly rhymes and wordplay are the perfect humor for young readers. Pen-and-ink cartoons add to the fun. An entertaining journey that will have easy-chapter-book readers lining up for the trip.–Heather Dieffenbach, Lexington Public Library, KY

From Booklist

Gr. 2-4. When Judy Moody meets Amy Namey, she bridles at the girl's similarities to her own proudly unique persona. They soon become great friends, however, but in her enthusiasm for Amy, Judy slights her old pals Rocky and Frank. In one amusing scene, Judy's little brother acts as a conversational go-between, relaying comments between his sister and Rocky, who's not (technically) speaking to Judy. Like others in the series, this book features a reader-friendly format, on-target humor, and convincing depictions of third-graders in action at school and at home. Illustrations not seen.

More About the Author

10 THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT ME

10. The first book I ever wrote was about a hermit crab, inspired by a pet I once owned.

9. My favorite color is purple.

8. I love to read mysteries. When I was Judy's age, I read all 56 classic Nancy Drew books . . . in order! Jeepers!

7. I used to collect scabs so I could examine them under the microscope that I got for my 8th birthday.

6. My four sisters and I often made up our own language, which included the words "Hoidi Boidi", "oogey", "retzel crummypuss" and "poony-poony".

5. My favorite TV show is JEOPARDY!

4. To research my Sisters Club book, THE RULE OF THREE, I toured San Francisco in search of the ultimate cupcake. The winner: Sleepless in San Francisco. Think chocolate + coffee.

3. When I was a kid, I fell down a hill from chasing the ice-cream truck and had to get stitches.

2. When I was a librarian, I used to tell stories in sign language. That's how I got the expression "same-same" for Judy.

1. I share a birthday (February 28) with a famous princess, race car driver and gangster, a Rolling Stone, a French tightrope walker, and a winning racehorse named Smarty Jones.

Megan McDonald's JUDY MOODY: AROUND THE WORLD IN 8 1/2 DAYS tells of Judy, proud of her rhyming name's uniqueness - until Amy Namey enters the scene with not only a rhyming name, but an attitude much like Judy's. Will Amy prove a best friend or an enemy? Add in jealousies over a team project and numerous social interactions which bring new challenges to Judy's circle and you have another Judy Moody book packed with adventure and Peter H. Reynolds' simple, fun drawings.

My kids have all Judy Moody and Stink books. They love them, and I know for the fact that they help kids who struggle with reading in 3rd grade. They are easy to read and have a good story, are funny and appealing to that age group. A must have!

Format: Paperback
In the book there is a girl named Amy Namey. Judy doesn't like her but as the book goes on they become friends. If you like Judy Moody books, you will like this one. I think it would take weeks to go around the world. Will she do it in 8 1/2 days? Read to find out!

Format: Paperback
I read Judy Moody Around the World In 8 ½ Days. It was great for the following reasons. I think whoever reads this book will understand it very well because it had very clear writing. Second of all, Judy is very creative because she could make pickle flavored gum. Third of all, this book is funny and you see that in the chapter headings. Some of these are "Eatsa Pizza," "Club Snub," "Heebie Jeebie" and "Bratellino Frattellino." Last of all I think one of the illustrations is fuuny. It is a striped furry spider with 8 legs.

I think Judy Moody Around the World In 8 ½ Days was bad because there was some name-calling in the book. Also because there is a fight between Judy Moody and a guy named Frank who was playing her dance music too fast.

In summary, these are all the reasons that I felt this book was bad and good.

Format: Paperback
“Judy Moody: Around the World in 8 ½ Days” is the story of a girl named Judy Moody that needs to do a project for her class and they have to go around the world in 8 days. Judy Moody has no one to make their project of Italy because she got in a fight with her friends Rocky, Frank and Jessica because Judy didn’t do a dance with them for their project.

“I think this book is really funny because in one part of the story Judy could come up with eight names for brother Stink like ‘Stink Mc Fink, Stink Lewink,Stink the Shrink ,Stink-a-Link,Stinky Dinky,Stinks a Jinks, Stinky Pink,and Stinky Blinky.”

I would recommend this book because it is really funny and it kind of reminds me of my little brother because I always make tricks on him or prank him all the time

Format: Hardcover
Beautifully done pen and ink drawings set the mood for this light read with a serious story.

Judy Moody meets a girl whose name also rhymes, and also shares her dedication to offbeat interests. With Judy suddenly feeling that she's lost her identity -- she's no longer one-of-a-kind -- we all wonder if Judy will make this girl her nemisis, or become her pal!

Young readers will read Judy Moody: Around the World in 8 1/2 Days over and over again. Kudos once again to Megan McDonald for a great read!
