Book Description

The fifth installment in the popular and best-selling series starring independent-minded third-grader, Judy Moody. Judy emulates her heroine, Elizabeth Blackwell, first woman doctor.


Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-4–Judy Moody returns, and here her medical aspirations go undeterred as she runs the gamut of roles from third-grade med student to nurse, doctor, and patient. She is learning about the human body in Mr. Todd's class, is excited about her project to dress as Elizabeth Blackwell, and will even perform surgery on a live object in front of the class. McDonald once again creates a feisty, individualistic, "RARE!" third grader with a very active imagination, keen wit, and a strong desire to explore the world around her. The author's humor and language are right on target, from describing the ups and downs in Judy's world, sibling rivalry, and conflicts with friends to a hilarious cloning episode. As always, there are facts to be learned and loads of puns and playful language to entertain readers. This is another winner, "for real and absolute positive."–Tracy Karbel, Glenside Public Library District, Glendale Heights, IL

From Booklist

Gr. 2-4. When her third-grade class studies the human body, Judy Moody dives into the topic with characteristic zeal and imagination. For a class project, she dresses as Elizabeth Blackwell, even attaching fake leeches to her head, reads her poem about the first woman doctor, and performs surgery on a zucchini. Dr. Judy prescribes Popsicles and prunes for her brother's tonsillitis but soon finds herself in bed with the same illness. Worse, she becomes the butt of a cleverly orchestrated practical joke. The class field trip and anatomy lessons are liberally laced with jokes and "humerus" word play, but McDonald never resorts to coarse humor. She finds ample comedy in the way children mishear words and mangle information. Reynolds' buoyant sketches depict Judy's ups and downs in this fifth book of a series that proves laughter can be contagious. Linda Perkins

Judy Moody, M.D

The Doctor Is In!

By Megan McDonald

Judy Moody is back!!! This time Judy has a challenge to become just like her idol, Elizabeth Blackwell, the first women doctor. Judy has a school assignment and it's about the human body. Judy dresses up like Elizabeth Blackwell for her project and operates on her patient, a zucchini. Meanwhile her brother, Stink gets sick, and her friend Frank tries to clone a guinea pig that is Jessica Finch's, Judy's enemy. This book is for kids of all ages. The illustrator did an awesome job on all the pictures and the author describes the situations beautifully and you can get a picture in your mind about what she is talking about. This book is really laugh out loud funny. I think that Judy is hilarious because she tries all these crazy things and she thinks that she can become the first girl doctor. Are Judy's friends there to help her or betray her? Hope you enjoy this book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Judy Moody is the best series I have ever read. January 29, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:Hardcover
Judy Moody is a spunky third grader who wants to become a doctor. When Judy finds out she has to do a project for school she is really happy and wants to do it on Elizabeth Blackwell, first female doctor. While working on the report her brother gets sick and now Judy Moody has her first patient. Judy tries all kinds of ways to make her brother, Stink, feel much better.

The class really liked Judy's report. Next, her friends played a trick on her. When she found out, she was really mad and did not want to talk to them anymore. Now, poor Judy gets sick and has to stay home for twelve days. Luckily, she has good friends who come to her house and help make her feel better.

5.0 out of 5 stars A set of zany adventures November 7, 2004
Format:Hardcover
Peter Reynolds' engaging cartoon drawings once again embellish the return of Megan McDonald's `Judy Moody' protagonist for grades 4-5: this time Judy is in a `medical mood' and, inspired by a class in anatomy, Judy learns about a woman doctor and decides to embark on medical world adventures involving a gooey operation and a cloning experiment. As usual, hilarious comedy invites even the most reluctant reader with a set of zany adventures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Judy always delivers. April 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is about the tenth book in either Judy Moody or Stink Moody series that I have read. And boy was it fun! I actually read this while home sick myself, and my wife and children were sick also. This book made some of the stuff we were going through easier to take. The book focuses around Judy and her continued desire to be a Doctor when she grows up. Her class has a trip to the Emergency room to visit the Hospital with the other third grade class. But soon after that trip, Stink ends up sick and gets to stay home from school. Judy wants to help doctor him back to health but ends up catching the mumps herself.

The chapters are:
M.D. = A Moody Day
M.D. = MeDullas and ManDibles
M.D. = Mystery Dectective
M.D. = A Million Dollars
M.D. = Mucus Dermis
M.D. = Mr. DryBones
M.D. = Majorly Delicious!
M.D. = Medical Doctor
M.D. = Medical Disaster
M.D. = Mumpty Dumpty
M.D. = Most Definitely

As we all know Judy can be moody at the best of times. Once she is sick, her mood becomes something even more, which for Judy is saying a lot. But through the help and support of her brother Stink, and her friends, things begin to turn around.

This was another great book. The collaboration between McDonald and Reynolds is amazing, as is the way the story is complimented by the drawings and illustrations. The flow of the story and the way you can pick up any of these books and read it either in order, or out of order, is great. These truly are amazing books that children of all ages will enjoy reading together and that is my M.D. My Determination!

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.
