The eighth installment in the popular and best-selling series starring Judy Moody. Judy Moody is in a mood. Not a good mood. And definitely NOT a math mood. The substitute teacher in Class 3T thinks Judy's math skills need improving. So Judy has to start meeting with a math tutor. Does this mean flash cards? Does this mean baby games? Does this mean school on weekends? But ...more

Scope
Older kids are always cool. They’ve got the freedom to do and say what they want. Youngsters envy that. To elementary school kids, college students are tops. J. Moody, in her latest adventure, experiences college firsthand. With an entertaining storyline, “Judy Moody Goes to College” will please fans of the series, but may not be a good starting point for the uninitiated.

When Judy’s substitute teacher says she need some help in math, her parents set up a tutor. Judy is not pleased, until she fin

''Judy Moody Goes To College'' by Megan McDonald is a good book you may think this book is for 3rd graders but this book is for grades 3-5. the book is really easy to read so I read this book as a holiday book. I recommend this book to you if you like Humor and Comedy books

I just finished this book with my daughter and it was just "okay". This, of course, came out way after I was a young child (I enjoyed the likes of Ramona Forever), but it had little nuances that were annoying to wade through (such as every chapter and reference being directed to the word 'attitude'). It didn't consistently hold my daughter's attention, however, I will take some blame for that as she may still be too young to really understand and enjoy a book such as this. All-in-all, two stars.

I really like this book because Judy finds a tutor and her tutor has a really funny sense of style and Judy thinks that how collage people dress and she goes to school dressing like a weirdo and her friends ask her why she is dressing like that and she says that that's what collage people wear.

Judy Moody takes a turn in this book, she is going to college!

Yes, now I hear you all say, College???? But that girl is only a child? Well, thanks to a new teacher at school Judy now has to take a tutor, and that tutor is at college! It was a nice change of scenery, though I was a bit annoyed with Judy throughout the book.

Why? Well, like with some of the other books, she is so easily impressionable, and will drop anything and everything if she finds a new victim to play the role model. Throughou

I will admit to indulging in some selections from the children's section. I like the Stink series by Megan McDonald. Judy Moody is his younger sister. I haven't read many of these, but this one caught my eye. It is very well written, and made me wish that I had a math tutor like Chloe! I might have learned more math if someone had made it fun for me like she did for Judy!

Now in third grade, Judy is disappointed that her favorite teacher, Mr. Todd, is still in Italy at a teacher's conference. She

This book is another great part of the Judy Moody girl detective series. This book begins by focusing on the fact that Judy is very moody. Today, she is not in a good mood at all. She is actually in a very bad mood today. Her bad mood all comes from that fact that she is doing not so hot with her math class and homework. Judy doesn't want to get help from anyone for her math, but she ends up having to have help. Her teachers tells her that she has to get some help, so off they go to find moody J ...more

Judy Moody Goes to College by Megan McDonald is about a young girl named Judy who's substitute teacher decides she needs help in math. At first Judy is very upset that she has to get a tutor. She feels like a baby, and is scared her tutor is going to make her use flash cards. However, when Judy's parents inform her that her tutor is actually a college student, Judy becomes excited that she gets to hang out with an older, college girl and gets to be on the college campus. Soon after she begings t ...more

I absolutely loved this book. Just like every other Judy Moody book, its very entertaining and something that I think all kids (especially girls) would love. This story is about Judy who ends up needing a tutor for math. Judy is not very happy about this situation because she does not want people to think that she is a baby. Her feelings change when she realizes that her tutor is actually a college student. Judy gets to go to the college campus and hang out with her tutor. Judy ends up letting t ...more

Judy Moody has always been one of my favorite series book. I decided on Judy Moody Goes to College because I am currently a college student. (I found it appropriate) Judy Moody was clearly in a bad mood, but she was also upset that she was going to have to get a tutor in math. She was so upset and thought of the worst possible for her new tutor. Well by surprise her tutor ended up being a college student. Judy Moody was then extremely excited because she was going to get to hang out with an “old ...more

1) I like this book because it shows you how college really feels and how difficult it is to be in college and because you get to read about a youngh girl who feels the expirence of going to college.For example on page 26 it shows how Judy Moody's math tutor is a college student so she(Judy) gets to do college stuff.Another example is when Judy has to go to different classes and has to take class on Saturday.This shows that college is not like regular school.

2) You would like this book if you li

This was the third book in the Judy Moody series and the eighth book with Stink and Judy Moody in it that I have read. I love the characters. The writing is wonderful. The illustrations are amazing. Together Megan and Peter have created some wonderful books to be shared by the whole family. One of the greatest strengths of these books is that even though there are now 23 books between the Judy Moody books, the Stink Moody books and the two cross-over books, they can be read in almost any order. ...more

Judy Moody does not do well in math, so she gets a tutor, and makes a friendship with her. Eventually, she goes to her tutor's college and surprisingly, loves it! A short, easy book to read. I would recommend this book for middle schoolers.

This story is about a girl named Judy Moody which goes to college and lives with her mom, dad, brother and cat. The setting is at school in college and at home. The plot is that she goes to college and has a uber-rare tutor. The problem she is facing is that she is having another teacher and it’s not Mr. Todd it’s a teacher named Mrs.Grossman. My opinion is why would they make a lady ( which is Judy Moody’s teacher ) be named Mrs.Grossman. My evidence is on page 1 which says she had a new teache ...more

Judy Moody always gets on my nerves but I love her anyway. I am 44 and never had kids but I bet more are like her than I realize. It is refreshing to see a girl "know-it-all" who doesn't put forth much effort. I love that "Stink" James Moody is the sweet, sensitive, considerate, thoughtful, and studious one of the two. I love this series.

Excellent book for independent reading or to be read with an adult. Adults can read this in one sitting to spark discussion about books with their children. Judy is real. Turn off the t.v. and get a cold glass of lemonade. I'm going to be volunteering at a summer camp and this is going to be my first read aloud.

I loved this book. It was about when Judy’s teacher isn’t happy with her grades she assigns Judy to a tutor. The way Judy thought her tutor was going to treat her was something that she would see in her nightmares. Judy thought that tutoring was baby games, flash cards, and unhelpful skills that somebody would be teaching her. Instead Judy gets a surprise of her real tutor which is a college girl names Cloe and takes Judy to cafes and science labs with a bunch of other college people and gives h ...more

I give this book 3 stars because Judy is very moody and it reminds me of my brother. They are similar in many ways like they think they are to smart to have a tutor.Also they both have mood swings like you would not believe. If you put them in one room I will go CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Salsabrarian
Light and humorous reading. Judy becomes enamored of college life and its freedoms (compared to 3rd grade) when she is tutored in math by Chloe, an uber-cool college student. Judy makes the most of her "college experience," even becoming part of college's art show.

Cute, girly book...very appropriate for young girls, especially if younwant to interest in college..on a level they can understand and appreciate. I love the fact the include diverse characters, and the story itself will remain relevant no matter how much time passes.

I am not a fan of books that use a lot of cute-speak (e.g. Junie B). I know the kids enjoy them. I have listened in while a large group of 2nd graders listened avidly to another teacher reading Junie B. But this is my review, so I get to say what I like. I found this book annoying. It stretches credulity to think that even third graders would be excited about "going to college" - excited enough for all of them to fail a math test. I can't actually believe that a whole class full of 3rd graders w ...more

I think this book is impling on kids that they should study more. It is a good story and all and very detailed. How Judy becomes more smarter then the other kids in the class is a little bit interesting. I think this book deserves a rating, not all the way.

So this may have been my favorite Judy Moody book so far! (Although I would like to take a break from them....) I enjoyed seeing Judy experience that learning can be fun. I had some good laughs at her view of college as well.

"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
