Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Inspired by environmental studies in school and a humiliating defeat in a Band-Aid design contest, Judy Moody, in her third adventure, revamps her family's recycling efforts and confiscates her classmates' wooden pencils in Judy Moody Saves the World by Megan McDonald, illus. by Peter Reynolds. Ages 6-10.

From Booklist

Gr. 2-5. The third title in the Judy Moody series finds the spunky third-grader in a save-the-world mood. Judy would like to enter an adhesive bandage design contest, but she doesn't have any ideas. Then a class environmental preservation project inspires her creativity, as well as a new mission. But it's not long before Judy discovers that saving the world isn't easy, whether she is trying to convince her father not to drink rainforest bean coffee or her mom to dispose of a rubber toilet plunger. However, Judy persists, and while bandage-art fame eludes her, she does come up with a class recycling project that makes a difference. It also puts her in a very good mood. This charming read features characteristically snappy, humorous prose; expressive, witty, black-and-white illustrations; and some great ideas for classroom or home projects. The book stands alone, but fans will enjoy familiar, distinctive characters and references from previous titles. Shelle Rosenfeld

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.

Judy Moody Saves the World

In all the Judy Moody books Judy has a mood for everything. In this wonderful tale of Judy she is in the mood to create a "Crazy Stripe" (band-aid) so that millions of people over the world could wear her work of art. That dream soon fades when one day at school, Judy's teacher in class T3 starts teaching them about recycling and endangered species. Judy starts to think about recycling and saving the world. Judy gets so involved with saving the world by recycling that she gets her entire class motivated to help. Class T3 starts to collect bottles to recycle. The students in class T3 decided that they will use the money from recycling to help plant new trees in the rain forest. At the end of the book Judy Moody is rewarded for her efforts in helping to save the world in front of her entire school!

This is a wonderfully written book with a great story line. As a teacher this would be a great book to help students understand the importance of recycling and helping save endangered species. Students will not only learn from reading this book, but will also get a laugh out of reading about Judy, her brother Stink, her friends Frank and Rocky, and class T3.

Judy Moody Saves the World, by Megan McDonald, is a great book about a girl who wants to make a difference in the world. Children will love this book because it contains so many feelings and ideas that they can relate to in their everyday lives. Judy Moody is your typical third grade student and sister who takes things to extremes. She is intrigued by science, and she is destined to save the world no matter what she has to do! Judy Moody enters contests, fights for endangered species, and comes up with a great idea to save the rain forest. She does all of these things because she has enough courage to stand up for what she believes in. You will find humor in every chapter. I even laughed out loud as I read the story. I think seven,eight, and nine year olds would enjoy this book very much!

My seven year old daughter loved this book, and I did, too. There was a lot of humor, and my daughter was laughing out loud to parts of it. One thing I appreciated was that the book doesn't talk down to kids, the way I think the "Junie B. Jones" books do (by using improper grammar and words like "bestest" to seem cute). Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback
In this, the third book in the Judy Moody series, the spunky heroine gets inspired to try and single-handedly save the world from environmental damage. The author handles the delicate material with a sense of humor, showing Judy's initial over-enthusiasm that sometimes leaves her digging through garbage for overlooked recycle-goods or confiscating products from her friends and family that aren't environmentally friendly. In the end, with the help of her classmates and a lot of fun (and funny!) adventures along the way, Judy Moody finds a way to make a difference that everyone can agree on. The book is a lengthy, entertaining read for children with lots of great illustrations throughout. A great book--both funny and heart-warming.

Format: Paperback
According to my daughter, this book is about "recycling and saving the world, but she doesn't actually save it." The message spoke to me and the drawings spoke to her. I generally gauge her engagement with a book at this stage by how many chapters she wants to read at one sitting as part of her nightly school-required reading. She was happy to pick up the book, but didn't push to read more than one chapter, as she has done with other series. She has resisted my prompts at purchasing other books in the series, so far. I like the physical dimensions of the book, the layout and the quality of the construction.

These are great books for the 8-10 year old girl. My daughter does not like to read and yet this series has captured her imagination and kept her engrossed for long periods. Well meaning topics and fun reading for kids.
