We purchased three Judy Moody books for Christmas vacation. They were perfect for my second grade daughter - even more fun because I loaded them on my Kindle and let her borrow it. When she went back to school she had to get permission to AR test on them because they weren't on her reading level. The librarian, teacher, and I discovered that she hadn't been reading at her level because she wasn't entertained. Now she's jumped levels and has found a wealth of entertainment in the books available to her. Thanks, Judy Moody!

I bought this book for my younger cousin for a Christmas gift and she was so excited to read it! I loved hearing her read it to us around the fire at Christmas time with the family. It brought us together in a fun and funny way! The book is a very good chapter book for new/younger reader and I suggest getting it for any of your younger family members or friends as a holiday present!

The flashiness quotient has been upped for the first ever team-up between Judy Moody and her younger brother Stink. How does that flashiness make itself known? Well,

Exhibit A: A holiday theme. This makes it clear that, just like Christmas, this sort of thing doesn't happen all the time.

Exhibit B: Color illustrations. A first for the Moody family. This is especially different for Judy herself, who's simple brown paper bag covers stood out precisely for their lack of a wide color palate.

Exhibit C: Sparkly cover. This would normally not be a good thing for me (just call me Glitter Magnet), but the saving grace is that it's not the rub off on your hands kind of glitter - it's a permanent, part of the paper sparkle. (Note to book cover designers: consider this technique for new glitter-applying standard?).

But enough of that - on to the story. The Holidays are nigh and the Moody children are making their Christmas wish lists. Judy's is a sprawling masterpiece that cannot be contained by standard paper, while Stink (spurred on my an unexpected visitor) has just one gift in mind - snow. Judy takes great big sisterly pleasure in telling Stink that in Virginia, there's no such thing as a white Christmas.

In the meantime, Judy and Stink take part in the annual Holiday program at their school. Judy's class puts a new spin on Christmas with a Hawaiian theme, while stink puts his own unique stamp on the event.

On the Eve of the big day, Judy and her brother place a bet on the likelihood of snow by midnight. All they have to do is stay awake to find out.

While not quite as winning as previous Judy Moody and Stink solo adventures, "The Holly Joliday" will be read eagerly by fans of the series. Some good fun.

There are two cross-over books that are both Stink & Judy Moody books, this one and Judy Moody and Stink: The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Treasure Hunt. Both are great reads as are the 20 odd other books between the two series. But what I like most about the cross-over books and especially this one, is that we see a very different side of Judy. Yes, she is an older sister and likes to antagonize her younger brother, but she is also an older sister who deeply cares for her brother and in the end does not want to see him disappointed.

The Chapters are:
Frosty the Mailman
Making a List, Checking It twice
Mele Kalikimaka
A Parrot in a Palm Tree
Jingle All The Way
Not-So-Silent Night
Let it Snow

All Stink wants for Christmas is SNOW! But in the book it has only snowed in Virginia once in a long time. But the new mailman's name is Jack Frost and he tells Stink that he can smell snow on the air. Will Stink get his Christmas wish, his Christmas miracle? Read and find out. Megan and Peter have become some of my top children's authors of all time. In the last 2 months I have read 10 books in these series and almost 20 books across McDonald and Reynolds. Not one has disappointed - all have been excellent reads! Give their books a try. You will find magic in their writing and illustrations!

Format: Hardcover
Christmas is zooming up on the Moodys' calendar. Stink is glued to the Weather Channel hoping to get good snow news. When he meets the new mailman, Mr. Frost, Stink is told to call him Jack, as in "Jack Frost." Jack Frost has a big white beard and a round tummy. He also has a great sense of humor (he tells Stink that if a dog bites him, he'll get "frost bite"). Stink immediately puts two and two together and pleads for Jack Frost to deliver snow since that is all he cares about this Christmas --- even as Stink's sister Judy informs him that it never rains in Virginia, so he's out of luck.

But Jack Frost claims he might be able to arrange a snowstorm. He seems to know quite a lot about weather and reminisces about a huge snowstorm in 1980. This gives Stink hope, although Judy teases him unmercifully when he tells her that Jack Frost is their new mailman and might help them get snow.

Meanwhile, Judy is busy composing her T.P. (totally presents) list, which she actually writes on toilet paper. Her list is very long, but when she tells Stink to write his, he prints out one word: "SNOW." Later, when Judy informs her mom about her class's Hawaiian Christmas party, Stink tells how his class made a snowflake field guide and learned about the famous snowflake photographer named Snowflake Bentley. At the school play, the parrot in Judy's class makes everyone laugh by belting out "Mary Had a Little Lamb" in Spanish, while Stink stuns the audience (and his teacher) by not appearing as the "Night Before Christmas" mouse, but as a blinding white snowflake.

On Christmas Eve, the Moody house is a scene of wild gift-wrapping and pizza eating. The doorbell rings, and Jack Frost appears with a package. But Stink answers the door, and so he is the only one to see him.
