JUDY MOODY AND THE RIGHT ROYAL TEA PARTY, by Megan McDonald and Peter H. Reynolds, Candlewick, Sept.11, 2018, Hardcover, $15.99 (ages 6-9)

Judy’s third-grade class is working on family trees, and with the help of Grandma Lou, Judy’s getting right to work. The two dig up proof that the Moodys (aka the brave Mudeyes) used to live in England. And not only did they live in England, they might have actually been related to Queen Elizabeth I. Judy’s all ready to put on her purple robe, when Jessica “Fink” Finch reveals some information that might bring Judy’s crown crashing down.

Judy Moody wasn’t around when I was young, but boy I wish she had been. She’s a spunky girl with varying tastes that really appeal to everyone. I love her honesty and her willingness to — eventually — admit defeat.

Judy Moody and the Right Royal Tea Party is in perfect keeping with its predecessors. Author Megan McDonald has Judy’s voice down, allowing readers to easily slip right back into the world they love. Peter H. Reynolds illustrations are a great addition to all of the books in the series, and look to be on-point for this one as well.

I’m so glad there are more and more early chapter options available for young readers, and this is a fine addition to the collection.

JUDY MOODY, by Megan McDonald and Peter H. Reynolds, Candlewick; Reprint edition, April 10, 2018, Softcover, $5.99 (ages 6-9)

To start, Judy Moody doesn’t have high hopes for third grade. Her new desk won’t have an armadillo sticker with her name on it. Her new classroom will not have a porcupine named Roger. And with her luck, she’ll get stuck sitting in the first row, where Mr. Todd will notice every time she tries to pass a note to her best friend, Rocky. But Judy has an abundance of individuality and attitude — and when Mr. Todd assigns a very special class project, she gets a real chance to express herself.


JUDY MOODY GETS FAMOUS! by Megan McDonald and Peter H. Reynolds, Candlewick; Reprint edition, April 10, 2018, Softcover, $5.99 (ages 6-9)

Judy Moody is in a jealous mood. Jealous of classmate Jessica Finch, that is, who gets her picture on the front page of the newspaper. When Judy sets off in pursuit of her own fame and happiness, watch out! She’s so determined, she just might find it — or she might merely become more INFAMOUS than ever.

Now she’s in a mood to whip the planet into shape!


JUDY MOODY PREDICTS THE FUTURE, by Megan McDonald and Peter H. Reynolds, Candlewick; Reprint edition, April 10, 2018, Softcover, $5.99 (ages 6-9)

So when Class 3T starts to study the Amazing Human Body, Judy can hardly wait to begin her better-than-best-ever third-grade projects: show-and-tell with something way rarer than a scab, an ooey-gooey operation, and a cloning experiment that may create double trouble for Judy and her friends. RARE!

The substitute teacher in Class 3T thinks Judy’s math skills need improving. So Judy has to start meeting with a math tutor. Does this mean flash cards? Does this mean school on weekends? But when Judy meets her tutor — a college student with an uber-funky sense of style — and gets a glimpse of college life, Judy’s bad math-i-tude turns into a radical glad-i-tude. Pretty soon, Judy’s not only acing her math class; she’s owning it.

When Mr. Chips, a beloved crime-dog-in-training, goes missing, Judy and her chums find themselves smack-dab in the middle of a real-life, scare-your-pants-off whodunit. Was Mr. Chips stolen by dirty dognappers? And why are chocolate-chip cookies disappearing all over town?

Pretty soon Judy is off and running trying to cross off all her items: learn to do a cartwheel, invent something rad, go to Antarctica. But what happens if Grandma Lou achieves everything on her list? Does that mean she’ll be ready to . . . kick the bucket?
