Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Judy dreads the idea of getting outside help with math, but she quickly changes her mind when she visits a local college to meet Chloe, her new tutor. Besides adopting a more positive attitude toward math, Judy quickly takes Chloe as her role model in fashion, decorating, and slang. Although McDonald occasionally pokes gentle fun at Judy’s imitation (and occasional misunderstanding) of college ways, there’s no doubt where her sympathies lie. An appended glossary defines terms such as geck, roomie, ’rents, and sick-awesome. Penned with expression and verve, Reynolds’ ink drawings illustrate this amusing addition to the Judy Moody series. Grades 2-4. --Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

Format: Hardcover
Judy Moody is shocked to discover a new teacher in her classroom, a substitute named Mrs. Grossman. It seems that the class's beloved teacher, Mr. Todd, is in Italy at a teaching conference. Mrs. Grossman's method of teaching is quite different from Mr. Todd's, and Judy doesn't care for it. She has quite the attitude toward Mrs. Grossman's "Attitude Tent" set up in the back of the room and about the fact that Mrs. Grossman rewards correct math answers with candy (Judy's major complaint is that she never gets any sweet treats).

Judy must take home a note to her parents in which Mrs. Grossman explains that Judy needs extra help with math. After much discussion, Mom and Dad decide to hire a math tutor for her. Judy is horrified, in spite of their assurance that being tutored will be an enjoyable experience. She believes her brother Stink, who tells her she'll be subjected to flash cards, bead counting and macaroni gluing. However, things look up when she discovers she will be tutored by a student, Chloe, at her college!

It doesn't take long for Judy to realize that Chloe is extremely cool. Soon, they are playing the Game of Life in the college coffee shop, where Judy is enchanted by Chloe's coffee order ("tall, skinny, nonfat, wet, extra-foam, no-whip latte with a double shot of vanilla") and with her own hot chocolate. Judy enjoys being the banker --- a subtle math lesson. She also learns some college vocabulary words from her new "peep" (friend) and gleans a few hip wardrobe tips.

Chloe, it turns out, is an unending source of purely pleasurable math-related games and projects. Judy is enthusiastic about counting the different colors of VW Beetles in the college parking lot and then graphing them in the appropriate hues.
