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

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,

This book is really funny.
I really like it.
Judy wants to get famous, but how can a girl get famous?

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
Grades: 2 to 4 Genre: Realistic Fiction
Everyone in Judy Moody’s life seems to have been famous at one point. Not only did Jessica win a local spelling bee, her brother and her parents all seem to have claims to fame. Not wanting to be outdone, Judy starts a campaign to become famous herself. But it is only when she does something in secret that she finally becomes famous. Children will relate to Judy’s quickly changing moods and the simple black and white illustrations add to this novel. Part of
Judy is stung with jealousy when her classmate wins a spelling bee. 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
*Spoilers ahead*

“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

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
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

Reading level: 3rd-4th

Reynolds uses black and white pictures throughout the story. The illustrations are used to just further enhance the story or scene that's being described. I enjoyed how many of the pictures are mixed in with the text, and sometimes are just neat little sketches that have to do with the story line. My favorite illustration is actually before the story even starts. There is a Hollywood star in the sidewalk with Judy Moody's name on it and the cat is looking at the reader, al

I thought this book was very entertaining. It would a great book for 3rd graders that are just beginning to read chapter books. The concepts and words are very easy to read. I especially love the pictures. I think students at this age are tired of the funny story books with pictures on every page. They are now a little more advanced and reading more text than pictures. These pictures are placed just at the right spots to assist the reader in understanding the story line and characters. Judy Mood ...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

“A-A-R-D-W-O-L-F, aardwolf. . . . You’re W-E-I-R-D.” this is what Judy’s brother says after she tries to make herself famous by winning a spelling bee. But Judy doesn’t always get her way. She also doesn’t have the support or experience she needs. But determined, Judy will go for the next best thing if she doesn’t achieve the other. Judy is the most hyper and vigilant person I know.

Ein supersüßes Kinderbuch

Judy Moody ist eifersüchtig auf ihre Klassenkameradin Jessica, denn die trägt plötzlich in der Schule eine goldene Krone (aus echtem Modeschmuckgold) . Nur zu gern erzählt Jessica, dass sie die Krone bei einem Buchstabierwettbewerb gewonnen hat und sogar in der Zeitung stand. Für Judy steht sofort eins fest, sie will jetzt auch so berühmt werden, dass sie mit einem Foto in der Zeitung steht und dazu ist ihr fast jedes Mittel Recht.

Dieses Kinderbuch ist sehr niedlich, or

I loved this second book in the series and hope the read the others as well. What a gem to find at my local library. I had seen these before in the stores and never bothered to give them another look until the name kept popping up everywhere, so I decided to look up these book again and have read two today. Anyway, this series has been great so far. I have had more laughs from it today than I have in a while. Give these a read, won't you?

Judy Moody is a young girl that easily gets in a mood. When she is in a mood it is not unusual for her to ROAR at people or just out loud. She is a wonderful character to read and her books are great fun for the young and young at heart. And with over 20 books in the Stink and Judy Moody series she is a very popular young girl. Her books have been translated and are enjoyed around the world. With every book I read, I enjoy the writing by Megan McDonald and the Artwork by Peter H. Reynolds even m ...more

My third-grade readers love these books, but I find them boring, especially in comparison to the Clementine books. In this book, Judy wants to be famous. she first "gets famous" by having her elbow only taken for a picture in the paper with a picture of her prize-winning cat. At the end, she gets famous by repairing dolls for Children's Hospital anonymously, and the newspaper writes about it.

"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
