4.5 stars. This was a super fun book in the Judy Moody series. I enjoyed it a lot.

In this book I wish I was in that class as well, the classes sound so much fun. A visit to the hospital? Learning all about the body? Making a big project to show to people? Yes, yes and yes! This is just the way to teach kids about stuff, by making it all fun.
I really liked the projects the kids made, especially Judy's. She is so creative and what she did to that Zucchini? It was great and it made me laugh, though

And he asked "What kind of phone number do you call if you get hurt?" And everybody shouted "911"! "GOOD"! said Mr.nose hair said. Frank took a clone to school.A CAR BORED CLONE. "What is that?" asked Judy. "My clone". Answered Frank.On the first chapter Judy moody looked like humpty dumpty.

This was a fun book to read as a "easy read". This is because I haven't read these books since I was 7-8. Judy Moody uses funny, made-up words, and this was just a really funny, fun book to read.

This is about the tenth book in either Judy Moody or Stink Moody series that I have read. And boy was it fun! I actually read this while home sick myself, and my wife and children were sick also. This book made some of the stuff we were going through easier to take. The book focuses around Judy and her continued desire to be a Doctor when she grows up. Her class has a trip to the Emergency room to visit the Hospital with the other third grade class. But soon after that trip, Stink ends up sick a ...more
Judy Moody is SO my daughter. I get to enjoy her charming self but I also am on the receiving end of a lot of her "ROAR!"s. And so the life of 8 year old Moody Judy continues. This time her friends played a trick on HER!!! I mean, it's ok for Judy to tease her friends but heaven forbid she ever be teased back. THAT is my daughter, as well. I loved the reconciliation at the end . . .

ps the one thing I don't like about these books is how she talks about Jessica Finch. Ok, Judy, I get it. So the g

This book is very hilarious and humorous. It's one of my favorite books of Judy Moody because she wants to be first woman doctor when she grows up and i want to be a doctor too. I just like to lay down and just read a good funny book.

I just bought this on a bootlegged shop for very cheap price. Before that I didn't know about this series. This book turned out to be very funny and very good than I expected it to be. I really loved it : )

Finished it in couple of hours :)

The last book that I have in the Judy Moody series. :( It's sad. Makes me wish I collected all of them when I was younger. I wouldn't even DARE buying them now. Priced at P500? Dear Lord. Everything was better when I didn't know the price of money. Makes me feel grateful that I had parents who were well-off enough to provide me with things like these. Thanks, dad. Thanks, mom.

I think this was my least favorite book from the three books that I own. It didn't really capture me. I couldn't even rem

This is the fifth book in the Judy Moody series by Megan McDonald. We've read several of the books in this series and have really enjoyed them. Judy is very spontaneous, creative and expressive and our girls love how funny she can be. I love that she's a strong, independent and spunky female character.

This story focuses on Judy's fixation on becoming a doctor and illnesses within the family. Judy and her classmates have interesting ways to present their science projects and the narrative helped

I read the whole book and this is my review
The main character in this story is Judy she is important becuase it talks about how she is having these feelings. My favorite part of the book is when GT 3 class goes on a feild trip to the emengany room. The main problem is when judy moody is so into being a doctor that when she figures out that she can be a vetanarian she is happy. I would reccomend this book to a friend. It does not care what mood you are in i

My kids LOVE Judy Moody & her younger brother Stink! These are great books to read out loud to your early elementary (4K-2nd grade) kids -- and the older elementary kids will love to read these to themselves. A friend who teaches 5th grade recommended these books for my kids, and she was right-on in her recommendation. Even last year at age 3, Hayden couldn't wait until after bath time to read another chapter -- and she could always answer questions from the previous night's chapter, so I kn ...more

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 Moody is a fun girl with all different kinds of moods. Grouchy moods, getting famous moods, saving the world moods, predicting the future moods, independent moods, around the world moods, college moods, detective moods, summer moods, lucky charm moods, and in this book, a doctor mood.

Judy wants to be just like her idol, Elizabeth Blackwell, First Woman Doctor, while she's a kid and when she's an adult. But how can she do that if she can't practice? Read about her funny adventures as she, Ju

I liked this book but it wasn't as funny as the first one. Judy pretends to be Doctor Elizabeth Blackwell for Doctor Day at school. She wants to operate on her brother's pet toad, but then ends up operating on a zucchini. She uses ketchup for the blood and it gets really slippery and slips out of her hands, and breaks in two. She uses a needle and three bandages to "stitch it up". That part was funny, but otherwise it wasn't as funny.

i gave it 5 stares because it was funny and good to read. i read this book because it looked good and because it had a cat on it. once i started to read it, it got better and better. the book it a book that you can read when you have no books with you or if you need a laugh. i read in the book that she dose not really like her life but she wants to live it so i read it to find out what happend and i did but i cant rememmber i can a little it is like i am happy so dont spoile it for me.

Lol, this just happened to be sitting there. It's actually my little sister's from school, and I felt in the mood to sit in the armchair and enjoy myself to some Judy Moody like back in elementary. I enjoyed it since I was rather feeling like I might be coming down with something. Hopefully not something too serious, hahaha. Cute and clever with a lot of knowlegeable stuff weaved into it, kids can learn quite a bit:)

I am all beaming with smiles now that I have just finished with this cute little book. Judy Moody never fails me. It gives me all that i want just when i need a good laugh. Very entertaining yet highly educational at the same time. A very quick and fun read to me! Been grinning silly over the course of the book.

This book is simply great. Judy Moody is a 3rd grade girl who has science project on bones and dresses up like the first girl doctor and does surgery on a zucchini. In the end she gets sick and her friends come and help her feel better.

Judy Moody is now a doctor! Join Judy on her wonderful adventure.. as a doctor. If your confused so far, you'll just have to read it won't you? This book has easy words but just as much fun as eating cheeseburgers!

#5 in the Judy Moody series.

Judy Moody wants to be just like Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman doctor. Judy has the best-ever idea for show-and-tell while her class is studying the human body, but when she gets sick, she proves that doctors are not always the best patients!
