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

I really liked this book because it was funny to read about a little girl who wanted to get famous really and ended up doing a good thing for a hospital.

So she tries doing multiple stuff but never got famous until she goes to best pet in the city and she won and got to get her picture in the newspaper but the only thing in the newspaper was her elbow so sh ...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

Narrated by Barbara Rosenblatt.Jessica Finch gets her picture in the paper after winning a spelling bee and Judy Moody is envious of her fame. Judy wants her moment in the spotlight, too, and she comes up with different ideas to achieve it, from claiming to have a cherry pit once owned by George Washington, to setting a world record as a human centipede (and breaking Frankâs finger in the process). While at the hospital with Frank, Judy discovers a collection of battered dolls in the childrenâs ...more

In an effort to gain recognition, Judy ends up coming in second place in a pet-trick contest, trying to create a Guinness Book record and breaking Frank’s finger. While in the hospital, Judy decides to put her medical expertise to good use by stealing all the children’s wing playroom dolls, fixing them up, and mailing them back to the hospital. And, with that, Judy makes it into the newspaper (albeit anonymously). Using modern l ...more

“Judy Moody Gets famous” was a book that I personally fully enjoyed. The book it is perfect for kids, since it is full of adjectives. The book leaves us with Judy’s teachings and great humor. The book takes us through the journey of Judy. Who after getting jealous of her classmate Jessica,she made multiple attempts in order to complete her mission of getting famous. Her first attempt was a fake Washington DC cherry bone, but a kid eats it. Her second attempt was to make a centip

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.

Judy Moody Gets Famous is part two of a series of Judy Moody Books. Growing up I literally adored Judy Moody and everything the books had to offer. I was obsessed with the book and the plot because the writing style and language are so appropriate for the intended audience. Being a college student and re-reading this book I was however amazed that I still enjoyed the book and all that it had to offer. Judy Moody is like an older more mature version of Junie B Jones. This transition of books is g

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.

Judy has a strong spirit with a good heart. I enjoyed reading about her and could relate to her competitive spirit. She gets jealous of her classmate Jessica, who won a tiara and gets her picture in the local new paper for winning the spelling contest. Judy wants to be famous as well. I think most girls could relate to Judy’s quick wit and emotional moments throughout the story. I enjoyed how Judy started out wanting to be famous in order to compete with her classmate, but ended up doing somethi ...more

All Judy wants in life is to become famous for something. Everyone around her seems to have made it into the local paper, and this makes Judy jealous. Thinking inside the box, she tries everything she can think of. It isn’t until one day Judy does a good deed, and without thinking about it she gets her fame. The novel takes on a child’s dream of being famous, and does a very good job; the plot, at first doesn’t seem original, but as the story continues it’s very original, it’s written well, and ...more

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

Another funny entry in the series detailing Judy’s endless quest to be at the center of things. Judy’s brother Stink goes to the White House while her classroom rival wins a spelling bee, giving Judy a new desire for fame and recognition. In typical Judy Bloom fashion, she tries to convince everyone that she has a cherry pit spit out by George Washington, which backfires predictably and hilariously. She also enters a contest at a local pet store, but this ploy suffers from a last-minute snag. Al ...more

I like this book because the main character Judy has a big imagination, and she does whatever she can to accomplish her dreams. She is a strong person that doesn't let anyone get in her way. Sometimes Judy can get annoying. She always wants to prove everyone wrong and always has to be right. Other than that she is a fun loving person. Her friends help her accomplish all of her goals no matter what, and they always have her back. I recommend this book to people who like books about people with st ...more
