Overview

Will Judy’s lucky penny lead her to the nation’s capital — or to third-grade C-A-L-A-M-I-T-Y? And what do her spelling-bee nemesis and a potbellied pig have to do with it?

The lucky penny in Judy Moody’s pocket sure does seem to be working. She can’t stop winning — at bowling, spelling, the unbeatable Prize Claw, everything! For sure and absolute positive, she’ll ride that wave of good fortune all the way to Washington, D.C. Watch out, District of Cool, here comes Judy Moody, the luckiest kid ever, until . . . oh, no! Her lucky penny just did a belly flop into a porcelain bowl of yucky, blucky UNluck. Has the coin’s magic gone kerflooey? Are some people, like Jessica Finch or Stink, destined to have all the luck, while she, Judy Moody, gets stuck with a yard full of three-not-four leaf clovers, a squealing potbellied pig in an elevator, and a squashed penny with cooties? ROAR!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Alicia Jensen
Judy Moody cannot believe her amazing luck lately, and it is all thanks to her lucky Penny! She has found money, won a bowling tournament, and now she has the chance to go to the third grade spelling competition in Washington D.C. (the District of Cool). Things are going great for Judy, that is until her lucky penny falls into the toilet (double yuck), and suddenly things go from awesome to awful! Judy lost the spelling bee to her friend Jessica. Judy is super bummed until Jessica calls to ask Judy to "pigsit" for her in D.C. while she is at the spelling bee! Judy, with a pig, in Washington D.C.—you can almost guarantee trouble is about to follow. McDonald once again does a fabulous job of creating a fun and entertaining Judy story, and the illustrations will leave children giggling at seeing the predicaments Judy has gotten into. This is a great story for school aged children, and with the plot focusing around a spelling bee, it is great at helping kids learn difficult words. They will be engulfed in this delightful story which is a wonderful addition to the "Judy Moody" collection. Reviewer: Alicia Jensen
