No-Talky Rocky vs. Judy Snooty
In this adventure, there is a new girl at school, Amy Namey. And she seems to be a lot like Judy Moody. At first Judy is jealous of Frank and Rocky's interactions with Amy, but soon the tables have turned and Judy upsets them by spending so much time with Amy. Judy upsets them so much, they stop talking to her and even refuse to help on a school group project. Judy works hard to make things up to them and help the two classes make it around the world in 8 and 1/2 days.
I really enjoyed what Megan McDonald and Peter H Reynolds did in this book. It was different from the others in the series and as such we saw more development in Judy. It was another great read in an absolutely wonderful series.
From an adult perspective it might not have a perfect flow, as another review pointed out, but it is still a fun story and enjoyable to read to your little ones. I'd recommend this book to other parents.
The person who did the illustration, Peter Reynolds, drew very funny pictures. The one on page 148-149 shows Judy Moody's Spider Dance is the funniest! The author was lucky to find such a good illustrator.
I plan to read more Judy Moody books. I wish Megan McDonald, the author, would write more Judy Moody books. I'll give the book five stars.
