"Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer" is an adorable book that students would enjoy reading. The main character, Judy, is a young girl with a big personality and a thirst for adventure. In this book, most of her good friends go away for the summer, leaving her upset but determined to still make the summer fun. She goes on several crazy adventures to compete with her friends to have the best summer ever.

This book would be a great read aloud because it would appeal to most students. Judy's quirky
Recently turned into a movie with was pretty much universally panned by critics - Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer is unfortunately a bit of a bummer even in book form. At least it is if you're over 12.

Judy Moody was geared up for a 'rare' (as she puts it) summer. In Judy speak, this means 'not bummer'. Unfortunately, her plans are foiled when her two best friends leave her (one for circus camp, and one for Borneo). Her plan to do dares and earn thrill points (other Judy-isms) seems lost - u

Judy Moody is always in a mood, and it's usually a bad one. This particular story of the series is about Judy and her two brothers who are being looked after by their aunt Opal over the summer whilst their parents are in California and follows Judy's mission to not have a bummer summer. An exciting and easy read, full of fun things and exciting characters.

Judy Moody wants to have a fantastic summer with her friends, but they are all headed elsewhere, while she is stuck at home with her brother Stink, friend Frank, and Aunt Opal. How can she earn thrill points when people keep messing up all of her plans? You’ll discover how much fun her summer turned out to be, even though Judy didn’t realize how m
This is my first Judy Moody Book. I don't always read the same books as my kids nor do I always read the books with my kids. But I did end up reading this one aloud with them over the summer, I am sure you can guess why based on the title.

I must say I much prefer the character of Judy Moody to that nasty little girl, Junie B. Jones. I really can't stand Junie. Any child who acted the way she did would banned from house forever!

In this book, Judy Moody is left with her aunt Opal for the summer.

I read this book like 3 times and I also watched the movie and it was so funny. I love how stink taks. he is such a cute character. Judy's hair is so messy I think she should brush her hair and not be a sleepy girl. I love this book so much.

It's the last day of school, and Judy Moody is sure she's going to have the best summer ever, filled with exciting adventures every day! She's even made a great chart for all of her friends, so each of them can keep track of their thrill-seeking accomplishments. But when two of her three best friends tell her that they're leaving on exciting vacations, Judy's sure that her summer has just become a complete bummer of a summer. Then her parents drop the bomb-shell news that she isn't going to her ...more

Watching Judy Moody made me miss my own summer vacations. Judy is determined to have the best summer ever! She is tired of being bored in the summer, so creates a system of Thrill Points based on outrageous dares in order to spice things up. Her little brother has also decided this is the summer he will catch Sasquatch. With free-spirited Aunt Opal watching them for the summer, Judy and Stinky will have a summer break that they will never forget.

Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer is a cute, humorous book for the young readers! I've read it three time already, and I might see myself reading it again with my little sister. I haven't read all the Judy Moody books yet, but they seem like they would be fun! I chose this book to represent the humor category, although our main character, Judy, seems to play on sarcastic humor the most! It was an enjoyable read that took me right back to my childhood and all the summers that I've spent right ...more
This book is definitely written toward its reading level. Personally, I did not enjoy the story.

I rated it a 3 because it wasn't horrible and I suspect that the story would be a hit with it's target group.

This is the first book I have read about Judy Moody, the slang and the random telling about what her mood ring was saying was distracting for me.

But for someone who is reading these regularly it probably is a fun aspect of her stories.

Judy Moody and her 3 friends are trying to have one of the best summers of their life, but when her 2 friends Rocky and Amy leave for the summer things change. Judy sets up a thrill point race while in different locations. Judy tries her best to get thrill points but her other friend Frank keeps her from that. To make matters worst her parents leave to California and Aunt Opal tries to make it the best summer ever.

This is a review of the movie tie-in edition of this book. It was released with the movie. This spring they will be releasing a standard edition with illustrations by Peter H. Reynolds. I can say having read 4 books so far, in either the Judy Moody or Stink Moody series, I missed the illustrations. The sketches and drawings by Reynolds really add to the story. With this edition, just having still photos from the movie it seemed like something was missing as I read the book. The story by Megan Mc ...more

A good read is a good read irrespective of the genre it is in or the age of the reader..And Judy Moody series by McDonald is just another example to prove this.
The book is relaxed reading filled with childhood escapades which anyone can relate to & this is the USP of the book,no matter what age you are, you enjoy it & feels reliving your many summers of childhood..

What was supposed to be the best summer of Judy Moody's life, might just turn out to be a bummer. Her best friends are leaving, and she is stuck at home with her Aunt Opal and little brother Stink, Luckily, Judy comes up with a plan that might just make this summer great. Judy Moody and the Not So Bummer Summer includes vivid characters whose boldness can only be rivaled by the vibrant colors used throughout this quirky, lovable movie. Smart integration of special effects makes it seem like Judy ...more

I like this book. Judy moody's summer is off to a bad start. Her friends go on vacation, and she can not have the best summer ever with frank-eats-paste-pearl. she gets the idea from her ant opal to race to 100 thrill points.She ends up having a NOT bummer summer.
This book was one of the best book i have ever read. I would love to have a summer like she did. A little bit about the story,
Judy is a young girl and her friends end up going away on fun adventures and camps. Her parents suddenly had to leave and she was left with her aunti.. (Which Judy thought who was boring) She ended actually having the best summer in the world!!!!

I have re read this book and finished on the 27th of September!!

Recommended ages 10 - 13

"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
