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

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.

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

It's been a while since I've read a Judy Moody book. My last experience wasn't so great but this one? It left me teary-eyed at the end. What a great lesson that Judy learned her self about the right kind of famous. Being kind to others.

Judy Moody has always been moody. Especially moody, in my opinion. However, this time, she is in a jealous mood. Judy is jealous of her classmate, Jessica Finch. As if this weren't bad enough, Jessica always brags about how great she is, and how she has things that most people cannot afford. If I were to describe Jessica in one word, it would be snobbish. Judy is jealous of Jessicas possessions. I would rather live in the Moody's house than the Finch's house though. This is because yes, Judy can ...more

The book was about Judy wanting to be famous. They were trying to form a human scorpion by tying their shoes together and walking around like a human scorpion. That was my favorite part.

Just Moody is a great series for inside the classroom and perfect for grades 1st-3rd. A series that I believe has a big lesson to it is Judy Moody Gets Famous! The story is about how Judy wants to be famous like her classmate who won a spelling bee and got to be on the cover of the newspaper. She tries very hard to participate in events that she thinks will get her in the newspaper as well. Judy then does a very kind thing by taking all of the dolls in the hospital and fixing them up for the kid ...more

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

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.

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.

I totally forgot about this series. One of my ultimate favorites as a child. A classic, easy to read for older children, I can't imagine anyone not loving it. In this book, Judy is in the jealous mood. She is jealous of her classmate, Jessica Finch, who made it on the front page of the local newspaper for winning the spelling bee. Judy went to great lengths to make herself famous, such as trying to teach her pet how to do tricks. Shockingly, none of her plans work. One day, she steps on her frie ...more

I have always like the Judy Moody series as a little girl growing up and I went back to reread Judy Moody Gets Famous and really enjoyed this adventurous chapter-book for transitional readers. This is the second story in the series where Judy is in a jealous/ selfish mood. She is jealous of her friend/ classmate, Jessica, for becoming "famous" when in reality her picture was just in the newspaper for winning the spelling bee. However, Judy wanted to become "famous" as well. So she tries everythi ...more

I read this book as a request and I am glad I did. It was my first encounter with Judy Moody and now I know how she got her name. The book is charming- it lets the reader feel the emotions of a young girl that has some trouble behaving. She seems to always be in trouble in some way. She shares her feelings of jealousy and wanting to be famous too as she asks several classmates and family, "Have you been famous?" She attempts to be famous and ends up being famous for something nice she does even ...more

Judy Moody Gets Famous! by Megan McDonald is just one of many Judy Moody books. I loved reading Judy Moody when I was younger and I think it is a great transitional book. Her books are great for grades 3-5. The font is on the larger size and there are still illustrations scattered throughout the pages to give the reader a break from reading page after page. I think these are also great because there are more than one so if the student liked the first one, then they can move on to the second one ...more

this was quite an interesting sequel though i didn t like it as much as the first book. this is because I found it quite repetitive in the way Judy was trying to become famous. i felt kind of bad for her when she came in 2 nd place in an animal contest but only her elbow and her cat s tail were shown in the newspaper. i really enjoyed the funny way in which judy made friends with Jessica. she was plastering her hand and then ran home when she saw the dolls she had taken from the hospital in a st ...more

Judy moody book 2 is very humorous. Judy is funny because she says “ROAR” when she is in a bad mood.
