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.
Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Format: Hardcover
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!

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!

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Stephanie, mom of 3 on April 4, 2004
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.
