Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Megan McDonald's can-do, groovy heroine returns in this mesmerizingly marvelous read about a new mood ring and some telling predictions. With her cereal box prize, the ring, Judy becomes "Madame M" and begins telling the future to folks who think her powers might be legit. Things don't always go as predicted, though: The Toad Pee Club's mascot does come home as Judy forecasts, but when she envisions a 110% score on her spelling test, she winds up with a less-than-perfect grade. Fortunately, Judy keeps an optimistic attitude, and after she correctly guesses about Mr. Todd's romantic life, she begins wondering what her own future holds. Another divine Judy Moody installment that includes more of Peter Reynolds's peppy art, this quick read is destined to keep fans howling with laughter.
Publishers Weekly
Judy Moody Predicts the Future in the famously temperamental third-grader's fourth adventure by Megan McDonald, illus. by Peter H. Reynolds. Here Judy, equipped with a mood ring, convinces herself and her classmates of her clairvoyant capabilities. Fans can track their own mood swings with The Judy Moody Mood Journal; the paper-over-board volume, with lined pages and Reynolds's occasional spot art, sports a spinner set into the cover, whose arrow (when spun) lands on one of 10 possible Judy moods. Sections such as "Favorite Pets" suggest prompts and provide quotes from the books to spark budding writers' entries. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
What I like most of all about Judy Moody is how typical a child she is. While I find Junie B. Jones completely annoying, Judy Moody is an average kid with average problems. She is also enormously popular with the transitional novel reader. Okay, enough about that—Judy Moody finds a mood ring in a box of cereal and is desperate for it to say she is "on top of the world." Unfortunately, the mood ring keeps turning black, which is not good at all. Judy becomes convinced that she can predict the future and sets about trying to use that skill in every way imaginable. The character of Judy is well drawn and the humor in the story is delightful. This is a wonderful read for the transitional novel set. 2003, Candlewick Press, Ages 7 to 10.

Children's Literature - Susan Stephenson
It is difficult to write books for younger readers. Restricted vocabulary and simple sentence structure can lead to monotonous writing. However, judging by the popularity of the Judy Moody books, author Megan McDonald excels at writing junior novels that keep kids coming back for more. These chapter books have several features that make them perfect for younger readers. Large font and lots of white space stop the books from appearing intimidating. Each chapter is short, with most having very little narrative but plenty of dialogue and action. Peter Reynolds's black and white, cartoonish illustrations really enhance the story, and add humor to all the situations Judy finds herself in. Judy is a young lady with attitude who somehow manages to get herself into, and out of, lots of scrapes, leading to a whole series of books about her. In Judy Moody Predicts the Future, her adventures revolve around a mood ring she discovers in her seventh bowl of cereal. Judy's interactions with other characters at home, school or in the neighborhood are all authentic - McDonald has a great ear and eye for children's interests and dialogue. I think Walker Books added a nice touch to the front cover—a sparkle-arkly crystal ball that Madame M (for Moody) is peering into! Although the strong girl hero (Judy) makes this a wonderful book for girls, I believe boys and girls aged from 6 to 10 will enjoy this book, and go on to read more in the series. Reviewer: Susan Stephenson
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-After eating seven bowls of cereal, third-grader Judy finally uncovers her mystery prize- a mood ring. It stubbornly stays black ("Grouchy, Impossible") after she slips it on, but over time the ring warms up to her. She thinks it has ESP, which allows her to make some outlandish predictions. Judy (as Madame M) forecasts she will ace her spelling test without studying. Naturally she doesn't, nor does she foresee getting in trouble with Mr. Todd, her teacher, after distracting the class with her prized possession. Judy's brother and friends are skeptical about the girl's newfound ability but with a few lucky guesses and a lot of confidence, Madame M marvels them with the biggest prophesy of all: Mr. Todd is in love. Established fans and new readers of the series will enjoy this adventure. Amusing black-and-white watercolors capture the humor and the girl's inimitable spirit. Prediction: another winner starring Judy Moody.-Alison Grant, West Bloomfield Township Public Library, MI Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Judy Moody Predicts the Future

Judy went to find the librarian.

"What did you get?" Frank asked when she came back.

"Predict Your Head Off!" said Judy. "It's all about people who predicted stuff about the future. Lynn helped me find it. She's the cool librarian with the fork-and-pie earrings. Not the mad-face librarian."

"Hey! It's a Big Head book. I love those. How come they draw the people with such big heads, anyway?" Frank asked.

"Maybe it's to hold all those big ideas about the future. Look, see?" said Judy, pointing to her book. "These people predicted earthquakes and fires and babies being born."

"Nobody can predict the future," said Frank. "Can they?"

"Ya-huh!" said Judy. "It says right here. Books don't lie."

"Let me see," said Frank.

"See? Jeane Dixon, Famous American Fortuneteller. She was some lady in Washington, D.C., who stared into her eggs one morning and predicted that President Kennedy would be shot. And she predicted an earthquake in Alaska."

"It also says she predicted that Martians would come to Earth and take away teenagers. I wish that would happen to my big sister."

"If only Stink were a teenager," said Judy.

"Look! It says here that that Jeane Dixon lady saw stuff in whipped cream!" said Frank.

"I've seen stuff in whipped cream, too," said Judy. "Lots of times."

"Like what?"

"Like chocolate sprinkles," Judy said, and they both cracked up.

"Hey,look at this," said Judy. "This book can help us with our spelling test. For real."

"No way."

"Way! See this guy?"

"The bald guy with the bow tie?"

"Yep. It says that he lived right here in Virginia. They called him the Sleeping Prophet. When he was our age, like a hundred years ago, he got into trouble in school for being a bad speller. One night he fell asleep with his spelling book under his head. When he woke up, he knew every word in the book. RARE!"

"I'm still going to study," said Frank.

"Not me!" said Judy, wiggling into her coat.

"What are you going to do?" asked Frank.

"I'm going to go home and sleep," said Judy.

When Judy got home, Stink was at the door.

"I don't have to study for my spelling test," she said, and gave him a big fat hug.

"What's that for?" asked Stink.

"That's for just because."

"Just because why?"

"Just because tomorrow I am going to know tons and tons of words, like woodbine."

"Wood what?"

"It's a creepy vine. It wraps around trees."

"So go find a tree to hug," said Stink.

Instead, Judy went to find the dictionary. The fattest dictionary in the Moody house. She took it from her mom's office and lugged it up to her room. She did not open it up. She did not look inside. She put the big red dictionary under her pillow. Then she got into her cozy bowling-ball pajamas. She pretended the bowling balls were crystal balls. When she brushed her teeth, she thought she saw a letter in her toothpaste spit. D for Dictionary.

Judy climbed under the covers and leaned back on her pillow. Youch! Too hard. She got two more pillows. At last, she was ready to dream.

Even before she fell asleep, she dreamed of being Queen of the Spelling Bee, just like Jessica Finch was one time for the whole state of Virginia. She dreamed of Mr. Todd's smiling face when he passed back the tests. Most of all, she dreamed of getting 110% -- zero-wrong-plus-extra-credit -- on her spelling test.

She could hardly wait for school tomorrow. For once, she, Judy Moody, not Jessica (Flunk) Finch, would get a Thomas Jefferson tricorn-hat sticker for Great Job, Good Thinking.

    Very good!

    I bought this for my daughter, since it was her birthday, and before I wrapped it, I read it. It's probably the best of all the Judy Moody series, since I have read all of them. I hope my daughter likes it!

    Great series for the young reader.

    Purchased this for my grandchild, she loved it and she was able to get her younger brother to start reading the Stink books.

    As usual this Judy Moody book falls into the category of a must read and I think you will find that after a child reads one book they will want to read them all.
    Great book to put in their Easter basket - the Bunny likes good reads!!

    Judy Moody is the best!! I think everyone in the whole entire universe should read all of the Judy Moody books!! I am in third grade just like Judy. I've read all the books and I've seen Judy Moody and a not bummer summer. There all awsome!!! When I read my first Judy Moody book I knew I wanted to read more. I want Kristen Coghlan to be proud of herself because she got me into these books! Just so you know I'm saying this about all the Judy Moody books. They are also super funny! Anyone can read it. My goal is to follow Judy Moody's footsteps and it should be your goal too! P.S. buy the whole series and don't forget about the Stink books! Chow! 1,000,000 %
