Judy Moody
Reissued in a way-cool paperback design "Judy Moody was in a mood. Not a good mood. A bad mood. A mad-faced mood." To start, Judy Moody doesn't have high hopes for third grade. Her new desk won't have an armadillo sticker with her name on it. Her new classroom will not have a porcupine named Roger. And with her luck, she'll get stuck sitting in the first row, where Mr. Todd will notice every time she tries to pass a note to her best friend, Rocky. An aspiring doctor, Judy does have a little brother who comes in handy for practicing medicine, a cool new pet, and a huge Band-Aid collection. Judy also has an abundance of individuality and attitude, and when Mr. Todd assigns a very special class project, she really gets a chance to express herself! Megan McDonald's spirited text and Peter Reynolds's wry illustrations combine in a feisty, funny first chapter book for every kid who has ever felt a little out of sorts.

My favourite part was that her teacher left.
The best character was her brother.

Judy Moody is in a mood. It's the first day of school and she is separated from her best friend Rocky. He gets to sit in the back of the class while forced to sit at the front, next to Frank "Eats Paste" Pearl. To make matters worse, Frank invites Judy to his birthday party, something Judy is not really wanting to do.

And so starts the first instalment of the Judy Moody series, focusing on a tom boy heroine who is not afraid to play jokes on her brother and hang out with boys. Good for the non-princess girls in your life.

Read this book in the third grade. Hated it with a passion. I'm sure I would have appreciated it more had I read it in my Grade 1 Junie B. Jones phase. By grade 3 I had moved on to more "sophisticated literature".
