Judy Moody19 books in series
Get ready to be in a good mood when you follow third-grader Judy Moody, her little brother Stink, and their hilarious hijinks in this best-selling series sure to delight fans of Judy Blume and Beverly Cleary.
Judy Moody has a lot of moods, and she's going to use them all this year in third grade. She's worried it won't be as fun as second grade was, and that her new teacher, Mr. Todd, won't be nice. But Judy and her moods are about to have good times galore as she shines in her class project, seeks fame, helps protect the environment, predicts the future, and more!
Judy's adventures just wouldn’t be the same without her family and friends. There's Stink, her little “bother,” who is mostly a nuisance, as well as her parents, her Grandma Lou, and her fun Aunt Opal. There’s her best friend, Rocky, and her “pest” friend, Frank. And, last but not least, there’s her talented, toast-making cat, Mouse.
Wondering about moods and writing inspired children's author Megan McDonald to create the spirited Judy Moody. Several of Judy's stories and adventures are based on real-life occurrences from McDonald's own life. She grew up in Pennsylvania, fighting for attention as the youngest of five sisters.
Among its distinctions, the New York Times best-selling Judy Moody Series won the first-ever Beverly Cleary Award; was an answer on Jeopardy! in 2019; and Sebastopol, California, where McDonald now lives, declared May 14 "Judy Moody Day." The delightful audiobooks are narrated by Barbara Rosenblat, who has won eight Audie Awards, and Amy Rubinate, who has won multiple AudioFile Earphones Awards. There’s also a spinoff series, focusing on Judy Moody’s bothersome little brother. The Stink audiobooks are narrated by Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson!
