The Wishbone Wish - Megan McDonald and Peter H Reynolds - Judy Moody and Stink Book 4


Judy Moody & Stink: The Wishbone Wish
Judy Moody and Stink Moody Book 4
Megan McDonald (Author)
Peter H Reynolds (Illustrator)
Candlewick
ISBN 9780763672065
AISN B01496K546

I am surprised that after 30 books Stink and Judy Moody still entertain!  I found these books a few years back and now read them with all three of my children. They entertain and surprise. Now there are over 35 books between the different series that include Judy Moody and Stink Moody. Some of the books that focus more on one or the other of them the best books are the four series are when they are featured together. My kids love the full colour illustrations by Peter H Reynolds and in part because Jody and Stink are just seem better when together. The first two cross over book The Holly Joliday focused on the holiday of Christmas, the second cross over book focused on family vacation and The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Mad Treasure Hunt. The third is on the event of The Big Bad Black.  And now this one focuses back on a holiday, the holiday of Thanksgiving! The chapters in this book are:

Wishbone Wishes
Bossy McBossy
Peace Treaty
Flying Turkey Gizzards
Mary Had a Little Piggy
Freaky Frozen Football
The First Thanksgiving

Judy and Stink plan on winning a number of events at the Turkey day challenges. Judy is so confident she will win she tells her Grandmother not to buy a backup turkey. They train, they practice and they compete. 

So come and join the Moody's in a Thanksgiving like you have never experienced before!

The Big Bad Blackout - Megan McDonald and Peter H Reynolds - Judy Moody and Stink Book 3

Judy Moody & Stink: The Big Bad Blackout
Judy Moody and Stink Moody Book 3
Megan McDonald (Author)
Peter H Reynolds (Illustrator)
Candlewick
ISBN 9780763665203 
eISBN 9780763670320

There are now over 35 books between the different series that include Judy Moody and Stink Moody. And while some of the books that focus more on one or the other of them the best books are the four when they are featured together. In part because they come fully illustrated by Peter H Reynolds in full color, and in part because Jody and Stink are always better together. The first two cross over book The Holly Joliday focused on the holiday of Christmas, the second cross over book focused on family vacation and The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Mad Treasure Hunt. This one focuses around an extended blackout during a hurricane. And as usual when they Moody's are working together rather than fighting some great things happen. The chapters in this book are:

Crash Landing
Elmer
Big Bad Blackout
Ghost Toasties
Hurricane Annabelle
Annie Oakley and the Fireman
Mr. Drybones and the Viper
The Ghost of Weejie
Up Periscope!
The Ghost-Toastie Oath

As mentioned a hurricane hits and the Moody's are at home, and it is so bad that Gradma Lou has been evacuated and she comes to wait out the storm with them. But of course being a Moody adventure it is not that simple, Granma Lou had to being the neighbour's pets that they could not take to a shelter. So We now have mom, Dad, Granma, Judy, Stink, a cat named Mouse and a Pug named Pugsy, Milo a ferret and Candy Cane a snake. The Moody household is packed full and then the power goes out. No TV, little radio, but they have a fireplace, games and the family together. A great stay at home adventure takes place.

I really enjoy all the Moody books, but these joint books are always just a little more fun. It is a great book in a fun series that is linked to so many other good reads. So if you have not yet met the Moody's give it a try and if you have I am sure you will love it.

Judy Moody Mood Martian - Megan McDonald and Peter H Reynolds - Judy Moody Book 12

Judy Moody Mood Martian
Judy Moody Book 12
Megan McDonald (Author)
Peter H. Reynolds (Illustrator)
Candlewick
ISBN 9780763666989 
eISBN 9780763675417

I have now read 30 books between Jody Moody, Stink Moody and Judy Moody & Stink books. That says a lot for the ability of Megan McDonald and Peter H. Reynolds to tell a story. And to be honest this is one of my favourites out of all of them. Jody seems to be maturing, even though she is in the same class, with the same friends and the same teacher, in this book there is more to appreciate and respect. 

In all of the books Judy or Stink learn a lesson, they grow of change but in this one Judy work really hard at not being moody. She develops techniques to help herself not have explosions. She is making changes. In fact Judy's changes are so complete that her brother and her closes friends begin to wonder if she has been replaced by a pod person and is not the Judy they know and love. This leads to some interesting encounters. As usual with the Moody's something always goes wrong and something very interesting always happens.

As someone with 3 young children, Judy's example in this book is awesome. It is a great little story and an awesome edition to the Moody canon. And in other exciting news there is a new series out shorter books in the new Judy Moody and Friends series.

Judy Moody and the Bad Luck Charm - Megan McDonald and Peter H Reynolds - Book 11

Judy Moody and the Bad Luck Charm
Judy Moody Book 11
Megan McDonald (Author)
Peter H. Reynolds (Illustrator)
Candlewick
ISBN 9780763634513
eISBN 9780763661984

Just when you think Judy Moody cannot get any better, it does. Including this book, there are 11 Judy Moody story books, 3 Judy Moody Activity books, 2 Judy Moody and Stink cross-over books and 9 Stink Moody books. For a series about one family to have 25 books and the authors to come up with more great ideas is amazing and wonderful all rolled up together. My children are just discovering these books and they love them. They love Judy and Stink, they love the illustrations and they find the stories hilarious. Even though they are nowhere near being able to read these books yet, they love having them read to them. In fact they are the only chapter books we read. And after we read them they love going back through the illustrations and telling the stories to each other.

The chapters in this brilliant story are:
The Luck Penny
Good Luck x3
Planet Lucky
The Bad-Luck Charm
Uck Bluck Charm
The District of Cool
Finch-Face Freakout
Judy Moody, Pig Sitter
Pig in the City
E-M-A-N-C-I-P-A-T-E

Judy gets a lucky penny and it seems to be working. Things just keep going her way. Then when her luck seems to turn she gets rid of the penny. But once Stink has it, he seems to have good luck, so Judy wants it back. In a story with wishing, a possible trip to Washington D.C., spelling bees and pig sitting there, it is bound to be fun for the whole family. Another great story in an amazing series!

So You Want To Catch Bigfoot? - Morgan Jackson, Jamie Michalak and Mark Fearing

So You Want To Catch Bigfoot?
Morgan Jackson, PhD
Jamie Michalak (Author)
Mark Fearing (Illustrator)
Candlewick Press
ISBN 9780763655501

When this book arrived, my son was ecstatic. I literally had to wait until the 3rd day to snag it from his hands once he fell asleep so I could read and review it. He wants to be just like Stink Moody and he really wants to catch Bigfoot. Between him and his older sister it's like living in the movie Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer. But both the 4 and 5 year old went through the whole book looking for the photo of the next that Stink flashed during the movie. That being said, it is a great book. Both kids love it and I am sure my son will be carrying it around for weeks asking for it to be read again and again. The book was enjoyable, as an adult and kids love it. It is an interesting mix of legend, fact and speculation. It also has a resource section at the end that with a list of books and websites for more information. It is a great book and fun for all ages.
