Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This sequel to Judy Moody handily matches the original in zip and wit, portraying the spunky Judy in her quest for recognition. Famous for her changeable moods, the third-grader wants to become just plain famous after her arch rival, Jessica, wins a spelling contest to earn the title of Queen Bee, an honor accompanied by a bejeweled tiara and a front-page headline in the local newspaper. In contrast, green-eyed Judy "felt about as famous as a pencil." When it becomes clear that her spelling prowess will not pave Judy's way to fame, the resourceful child tries to pass off a hammered cherry pit as one from George Washington's ill-fated tree a ruse that bombs when a boy mistakes it for an M&M and swallows it. Judy's cat, Mouse, makes another appearance, helping the heroine attract the spotlight when it wins second place in a pet contest; but the newspaper photo shows only her elbow, and her name appears as "Judy Muddy." McDonald provides an inventive conclusion to her tangy tale, as an altruistic undertaking on Judy's part garners her fame (hint: her medical school aspirations once again come into play) but anonymously. Even Judy could spell two words that describe both the plot and its heroine: f-r-e-s-h and f-u-n-n-y. Here's to her quick return. Ages 6-10.

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-4-Third-grader Judy Moody is back in her second adventure for the young chapter-book crowd. She has a mood for all seasons, and this time it is jealousy. She thinks everyone else is famous except for her-even her parents and brother all have claims to fame. Sure that she'll be a winner when her cat makes toast for the "Famous Pet Contest," she loses to a boy whose chicken plays "Three Blind Mice" on a toy piano. In the end, Judy becomes famous anonymously after she steals some broken dolls from the hospital, fixes and cleans them, and mails them back, and the local newspaper picks up the story. To her surprise, she finds her secret even more satisfying than having everyone know who did the good deed. Funny black-and-white cartoons appear throughout. Dialogue is right on target for the character's age and feelings. The child's self-centered attitude may be tiresome to some adult readers, but kids will relate to her every concern. Look for future adventures of this feisty heroine, and don't miss her time in the spotlight.

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.

The sequel to Judy Moody can get no other word than being funny! After she fails to win the spelling bee contest and sees her arch rival Jessica win and get that beautiful tiara Judy Moody made it her job to become famous!! However like all other Judy Moody books things get out of hand and the book turns outragously funny. Judy's cat named "Mouse" helps achieve some fame but that isn't lasting. A hilirious book for all ages to enjoy and laugh about!!

I recently bought the Judy Moody books for my 8 year old son. I read them too and found them to be enjoyable.
In this one Judy just wants to be famous SO bad especially after her younger brother Stink, gets to go to the White House and one of her classroom rivals wins a spelling bee. She, along with her closest friends, try hard to become "famous". Her first attempt of trying to make people believe that she actually has a cherry pit that belonged to George Washington end hilariously. Later she sees a chance to win a contest at the local pet store but at the last minute that one goes awry.
Judy does finally achieve "stardom" and it is very heartwarming.
You will enjoy these books as well as your children. My 8 year old son just loves them and can't wait for the next one. If your child enjoys the Junie B books, they will probably like these as well.

This book will make you laugh. The illustrations in this book are very cute. I liked the part of the book where Judy and Rocky start a club called "The Toad Pee Club" because a toad peed on them. Kids who read the "Junie B. Jones" series will probably like the Judy Moody books, but the Judy Moody books are a little longer...

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
This series of Judy Moody books have been great for my 1st grader. She has been dying to have "books of her own" and not her sister's hand me downs. I was amazed how absorbed she became with the book and actually finished the first one in two days. Everywhere we went she took her book to read, even at the restuarant while we waited for our dinner to come to the table.
Some of the things she loves in the book is that she calls her brother "stink", her cat is named "mouse" and the frog mascot pees on them. Plus one of Judy's friends eats paste ... Just an all around fun book but parts have teaching value as well.
In this book Judy wanted to be famous and tried several things, like entering a pet trick contest where her cat can make toast! She one second place but when the picture appeared in the paper - only her elbow showed and the back end of her cat. But in the end of the story Judy winds up at a hospital waiting room for kids where the dolls are all broken. She takes them home without telling anyone and fixes them all up, hair, heads, clothes, casts etc. One doll she drew a broken heart on the chest and a line down the middle of the doll from the neck to the belly button. This was representative of a girl she met there who I just had a heart transplant. She packaged all the dolls up and mailed them back to the hospital. Later, in the newspaper "The Phantom Doll Doctor" appears an article - no one knows who repairs the dolls or returned them. Judy's parents know but doesn't let on to her and they put the article up on the refrigerator. Judy never reveals that she was the Phantom doctor but she got great satisfaction out of knowing that she did something good and she was famous - even if she only knew.

My eight-year-old daughter loved this book. There were a few challenging words for her, but she was excited to read a "chapter book." I caught her laughing out loud.
