Children's Literature - Leona Illig
Judy, her brother Stink, and her Mom and Dad know that there is a big storm outside. But what they do not know is that the storm is about to turn into Hurricane Elmer, and their home is about to turn into a zoo. Judy, who is in the third grade, and Stink, who is a second-grader, are delighted when their elementary school in Virginia is closed because of the hurricane. And when Grandma Lou and some unusual, temporary pets (including a dog, a ferret, and a corn snake) come to stay with them to ride out the storm, the fun begins. Grandma teaches the kids how to have a good time with games as well as stories about farm life, ghosts, and hurricanes past—no electricity required. What makes this edition of the “Judy Moody & Stink” series stand out is the realism and originality of the characters and plot. There is plenty of humor, and it grows out of the natural interactions among the characters. Both children and adults are likely to find themselves laughing at the antics of Judy and her family. Engaging, colorful illustrations are sprinkled throughout, and readers will not want to miss the special effects on the book jacket. A thoroughly entertaining and amusing story of a modern day family—with some old-time values—this book will be enjoyed by Judy Mood and Stink fans everywhere. A list of activities that kids can play during a hurricane blackout is included. Reviewer: Leona Illig; Ages 7 to 10.

Gr 1–3—In this third, full-color installment in the series featuring the Moody siblings, a blackout encourages the whole familyto discover activities that don't require electricity.
Kirkus Reviews
2014-02-19
It's hurricane season in Virginia, and Stink and Judy Moody are in for some dark nights. The Moodys are stuck in their house with no electricity when Hurricane Elmer strikes. What could be challenging turns into an enjoyable few days, especially when Grandma Lou joins the family with Gert, her kayak, and an assortment of animals she has taken in for friends who could not take them to the shelter. Losing power is nothing new to these hearty residents of the Virginia Beach area. Grandma is soon cooking food over a fire in the fireplace, and Stink is imagining himself a pioneer like his hero (and latest obsession), Abraham Lincoln. The nights are filled with board games played like musical chairs, switching games when the music from the old-time (presumably battery-operated) CD player changes, and listening to stories. Sometimes they read aloud, but the best part is telling stories. Whether it's a story about a special chicken, a disastrous hurricane wedding or Judy's Mr. Drybones story, everyone enjoys the time together. Readers of this fine series will enjoy the full-color illustrations and the little rain clouds above the page numbers. New fans can join in the fun—no need to have read the earlier books to enjoy this newest one. A cozy, comfortable book for a rainy night. (Fiction. 5-9)
