Banyak cara yang bisa dilakukan sebagai usaha untuk terkenal. Kalau Anda merasa punya bakat di bidang tarik suara atau tari-tarian, segeralah ikut ajang pencarian bakat. Merasa tidak punya bakat di kedua bidang itu? Berjoget-jogetlah sambil komat-kamit mengikuti lirik sebuah lagu - jangan lupa untuk menyalakan alat perekam - dan segeralah unggah ke youtube. Siapa tahu nasib Anda akan sama dengan duet keong racun. Atau, suara Anda sangat bagus tapi tidak ingin ikut ajang idol-idolan? Rekam saja d ...more

I really like the Judy Moody character. She might get into trouble, but it's often times just by accident. Judy is a creative outgoing young girl who has many more positive attributes than Junie B. Jones. As a mother, I would prefer my daughter reading about a young girl who acts altruistically like Judy instead of reading about a bratty girl like Junie B. Jones. I thought the ending was touching. The story is about how Judy want to be famous like her classmate who won a spelling bee. She tries ...more

It's been a while since I've read a Judy Moody book. My last experience wasn't so great but this one? It left me teary-eyed at the end. What a great lesson that Judy learned her self about the right kind of famous. Being kind to others.
Enrique Suarez-Ojedis
The book was about Judy wanting to be famous. They were trying to form a human scorpion by tying their shoes together and walking around like a human scorpion. That was my favorite part.

In this book by Megan McDonald, Judy Moody tries everything that she can to become famous. Her classmate, Jessica Finch, won a spelling bee and Judy saw that this got her fame so she wanted the same. She tried to make up a lie about an ancient cherry, she tried to have a famous pet that did tricks and she tried to break a world record but these all ended wrong and Judy was still not famous. One day she accidentally stepped on her friends finger and broke it. They took him to the hospital and whi ...more

Wah g suka banget ma yang edisi ini.

Sejak berkenalan dengan Judy Moody, g tau kalau anak ini spesial justru karena kelakuan khas anak-anaknya. G berkata begini karena akhir-akhir ini g liat anak-anak cenderung bertingkah tidak selayaknya seumuran mereka. Kasian banget, keknya bertingkah normal itu jadi sesuatu yang mahal banget *curcooool* hahah!

Back to Judy Moody...selain lucu, buku ini juga banyak menyampaikan pesan moral positif. Misalnya seperti : tidak semua yang u harapkan bisa terwujud,

Judy has more depth and dimension in this second installment. She still harbors some of the same feelings about her brother Stink, but their relationship is more amicable. And although envy and jealousy motivate much of Judy's quest for fame, readers can't help but feel for her when she can't find a single event in her life to earn a place in the Moody Hall of Fame. Throughout the text she learns the difference between becoming famous, infamous and just plain criminal. Judy might be known for be ...more

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
Rare! We really like the Judy Moody series and although we've skipped around a bit, we are now working our way through the rest of the books in order. We like Judy's spunk, and I think our girls can empathize with her feelings. She is a very creative and spontaneous character and we love her interaction with her family, teachers and friends. We loved the ending - perhaps it will inspire children to do the same.

The book is about a girl named Judy Moody and she is the tallest in her family. She is trying to get famous by many ways. For example she got her cat to make toast for her face can be in the news paper. I think this book would be for a person that has fun at lot of ways. I like this book because it has all my favorite thing like being childish.

Such a fun, transitional book for young readers. Judy Moody not only teaches readers how to help others, but to do it in a fun secretive way. Every child wants to have a famous moment, and no one can teach them better than Judy Moody herself. The illustrations in the book give the readers a fun, creative outlook to Judy Moody's life. Every young reader will want to read this book to find their famous moment.
Mckenzie Richardson
This is a great continuation of the Judy Moody series.
A quick, but entertaining read, filled with humorous stories of how Judy tried to get famous.
I love Judy's character and how McDonald allows her to feel all sorts of emotions (not just happy), teaching kids that it is okay to be in a bad mood sometimes.
Very simple, but extremely funny.

Judy is just dying to be famous for something - ever since Jessica won the regional spelling contest and got her picture in the newspaper. But what can she do? Even when Stink creates a Hall of Fame display on the refrigerator, she can't think of anything to put in it for herself. Desperate situations call for desperate measures and soon Judy has her friends, Rocky and Frank, involved in a scheme to become famous - with disastrous results. Does losing a finger make you famous?
Marika Gillis
Judy Moody Gets Famous is an adorable story of a precocious little girl who is desperate for a little fame. Judy notices that all of her friends have had their moment in the spotlight- a name in the paper, an award of some sort, etc.- except her. So, she tries to get a little of her own fame through various amusing antics. In the end, Judy instinctively does an amazing act of kindness and realizes that its not attention that's important, but what one little girl can do to help others in need. Th ...more

****spoiler alert****

why does Judy want to be famous and why is she jealous of Jessica? Judy wants to be famous because Jessica won the spelling bee contest and shes jealous because she wants to also be famous and wants to be as good as her. The genre is realistic fiction because people do go through things like being someone different then who you are.My opinion of this story is it doesn't matter who's famous or better because you are unique in your own way but we have to admit people do go thr

4.5 stars. After the first book turned out to be such a success, I knew I just had to get the rest of the books. I was at first looking to buy 1 and 2 together, but then I found an amazing deal, 10 books for ~20 euro. So now I have a whole stack of these books and I just can't wait to read them all!

And now for the book. Judy Moody is at it again. She is quite moody again, but with right reasons. I can just imagine it mustn't be much fun to see everyone having their minutes of fame while you have

"Sometimes I think I am Judy Moody," says Megan McDonald, author of the Judy Moody series, the Stink series, and THE SISTERS CLUB. "I'm certainly moody, like she is. Judy has a strong voice and always speaks up for herself. I like that."

For Megan McDonald, being able to speak up for herself wasn't always easy. She grew up as the youngest of five sisters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her father, an
