Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lisette Baez
"Summer" is the greatest word any child can hear. It means school's over and the fun can begin. That is exactly what Judy Moody is counting on, until she experiences one disappointment after another. Her parents have decided to take a vacation without Judy or her brother Stink, and their Aunt Opal is coming to babysit. Judy doesn't remember her dad's sister, Aunt Opal, but is sure it is going to be the worst summer ever. As if that isn't enough, two of Judy's closest friends will be away for the summer too. Judy quickly learns Aunt Opal is not how she imagined. Aunt Opal arrives with bright blue boots, an armful of bangle bracelets and long, bright red hair. Judy Moody, Frank Pearl, Aunt Opal and Stink dive headfirst into an action-packed summer filled with adventure, mystery and excitement. From Bigfoot to dares to Scream Monster and a nighttime stakeout, Judy's story compels the reader completely from page to page. Young readers can continue their reading adventures with Judy and Stink in the many other books by Megan McDonald. Reviewer: Lisette Baez

Gr 3–5—Summer is finally here and Judy Moody is bummed. Not only are her parents headed to California without her and her little brother Stink, they are leaving them in the care of her awful Aunt Opal. On top of that, two of her best friends are off for daring adventures, while Judy is sure she's going to have the "boringest" summer ever. Judy comes up with a daring, THRILL-a-delic plan to save her summer including tightrope walking, a midnight stakeout, and chasing after Bigfoot in a runaway ice-cream truck. But after all that, and a surprise poop picnic, will she still be able to earn enough "thrill points" to beat her friends? Based on the screenplay by Megan McDonald and Kathy Waugh (Candlewick, 2011), both fans of the series and those new to it will enjoy this fast-paced listen. Barbara Rosenblat's narration adds to the fun.—Amy Joslyn, Fairport Public Library, NY
