Judy Moody cannot believe her ears. There at the lunch table, a girl called Amy Namey is interviewing Judy's best friends, Rocky and Frank. Even worse, Amy is dressed like Nellie Bly, daredevil woman reporter, much like Judy's emulation of a certain woman doctor. Is this clipboard-carrying girl destined to be Judy's new best enemy? O

So, Judy Moody is in the classroom and this girl appeared when she was sitting next to her best friends and she was a reporter and she said, "What would you like for lunch?" And two of Judy Moody's best friends chose pizza, but SHE chose French Toast. And so, she said, "Check!" And Judy Moody said to her friends, "You can't have pizza every day of the week," because they said they wanted pizza every day of the week! And the reporter said, "Why not? My mom knows the lunch ladies!" And so she said ...more

I liked this book.I think that Megan McDonald is a really good author.She knows how to talk in "Kid Language".In the book the main character named Judy Moody meets a girl named Amy Namey,and they become friends.At first Judy's friends like her but then they feel that she stole her.I recommend this book to people who like childish or and playful books.This book also has a series.

Judy Moody is not happy when a girl called Amy Namey is interviewing Rocky and Frank at lunch time. Rocky and Franky are Judy’s best friends and they are happy to oblige with Amy’s interview on school improvements. At first Judy does not like Amy Namey. However it turns out that they have a few things in common. Rocky and Frank point out to Judy that Amy is just like Judy. For instance both Judy and Amy have names that rhyme.

Amy invites Judy to join the My-name-Is-A-Poem club. This is a club in

Jody Moody is awesome! I love her character, and her interactions with her friends and her family. The books in this series will make you laugh and look at the world a little differently. This book is a little different from most in the series, as it really focuses more closely on just Judy. There is a little less interaction with her family and her friends than in the other 6 books I have read in this series.

I thought that this book was funny because when Judy was doing the tarantella dance Judy was making funny faces, she made funny faces because she was dizzy from doing the tarantella dance. The dance is a spider dance Judy had to do 8 movements at the same time. Why did Stink, Rocky, Frank, and Jessica play the tarantella music fast? How did Judy make the worlds biggest pizza? Who put put JM made of gum on the alley wall? Why does Amy say wierd stuff like "check!" all the time?

Who made Amy's club
4.5 stars. All aboard for the trip around the world in 8 1/2 days!

Really, I am so jealous of these kids and their school projects. I wish I could participate in them. The teachers at Judy's school really make sure kids are having fun with their school things.

This time the school project is about a certain lady who went around the world in 72 (I believe) days. They are going past all the countries she went by, eating, learning, doing all kinds of things. Even having group projects and showing wh

When Nellie Bly traveled around the world in 72 days, both of the third grade class (Class 3T and 3v) tried to go around in the world in eight days. But, when Judy meets a new friend name Amy Namey and invites her to join the My-Name-is-a-Poem Club. Her old friends, Rocky and Frank stop talking to her, and how can they work on their project if they don't talk to each other. And this book is a good lesson on make new friends but keep the old ones.

I chose to read this book because although I have read Judy Moody books in the past, I have never read this one before. The story takes the reader through trials Judy faces being a third grade student. The book is great for early readers, containing small words, rhyming words, context clues, and more.
Judy and her classmates are giving projects to the class about different countries around the world. The project must be complete within eight days, but something happens to push the plan back to e

This story was quick and simple. I found it rather dull myself, but could appreciate it for what it was. My son really enjoyed it, though we hadn't done any other judy moody books before. Captivating for children, fun and simple.

These book is more easy for kids, that don;t read to much. In these book Judy Moody is trying to go around the world in 8 1/2 days. These could be a good book for kids that want to discover new things.

This book is about a girl name Judy moody she is a third grader and her name rhymes everything about her is that everything rhymes when she met the new girl she couldn't stand her because she does the same thing that Judy moody does.

I loved the all Judy Moody books when I was kid! They were always so adventurous and interesting. Megan really knows hot to write books for kids withour making them too complicated or too easy. The illustrations are really good to. When I was a kid, I would always try to draw and recreate the pictures. I really love Judy's cat, Mouse?,. It's just that he's? always there randomly.Stink was amazing character too. Smart and funny. I find it hilarious that a parent would name there kid Stink. I love ...more

Judy meets someone new at lunch named Amy Namey. Judy and friends are going to dance for their class. But on the day they practice Judy goes to amy's house and forgets about practice.
The spunky title character faces friendship problems when buddies Rocky & Frank become frustrated with Judy’s over-the-top admiration for new girl Amy Namey. Tension builds when Judy neglects her duties in a classroom project on nations of the world in order to spend more time with Amy. With humor and energy, McDonald has once again zeroed in on typical third-grade emotions and reasoning, ensuring the popularity of this entertaining 7th book in the series. Characters’ involvement with the “M ...more

Judy Moody meets her match in Amy Namey, a new girl who not only has a rhyming name like she does but also many other things like her. Is she just copying her? Does Judy have a new enemy or the chance to find a wonderful new friend with whom to share all of her passions? Things get even more complicated when Judy's "old" friends suddenly feel neglected. Will this affect their class work for the Around-the-World project? Life is never boring when you are around Judy Moody (and her brother Stink) ...more

Recommends it for: 8-11 year olds
The Judy Moody books were always a breeze to read and an enjoyable series for kids!
Plot: Judy makes a new friend has a brief falling out with her old friend, and then has to work with them on a school project. Will they finish their project on time, or will they disappoint their classmates who are counting on them.

Why I picked it up: I needed a short book to reach my goal of 50 books in a year. Plus, I've been wanting to try them for awhile.

Why I kept reading: It boosted me on my way to 50 books.

In the end: As with the previous Judy Moody book I reviewed, I'm glad I decided to

Judy Moody around the crazy lol. She always adds a spin to anything that's meant to be serious or important lol. I enjoyed reading this book. It was very funny, and different. I hate it's one more book in te series. But I wanted to read Judy Moody brother series. And I pray it's as interesting as this book was.

Judy Moody is a very funny, entertaing and exciting. But I would compare her book to the Lemony Snicket series. So if you enjoy Lemony Snickett your defintaly enjoy Judy Moody a

"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
