Praise

The book itself has a look as fresh as its heroine . . .The book opens . . . with a hilarious spread in pen-and-ink wash . . . the dialogue is spot-on . . . It’s hard to imagine a mood Judy couldn’t improve.
Publishers Weekly, starred review

…[T]his beginning chapter book features large type; simple, expressive prose and dialogue; and plenty of child-appealing humor. Children will enjoy lively Judy and her diverse hobbies and adventures with best-friend Rocky. They’ll also like the witty, detailed drawings (especially the picture of Judy’s unique collage, a nice activity idea) . . . An entertaining story that portrays challenges and pleasures from a kid’s perspective, and shows how making the best of things can have surprising rewards.
—Booklist

Changeable skies arch over a third-grader’s moodscape in this easy-reading chapter book . . . Reynolds’s black-and-white washes are perfectly placed to track Judy’s ups and downs . . . Surefire fare for Cleary, Kline, and Hurwitz fans.
—Kirkus Reviews

McDonald’s offbeat humor coupled with expressive black-and-white cartoonlike illustrations make Judy, her family, and her friends both appealing and realistic.
—The Horn Book Guide

Fans of Beverly Cleary and the Amber Brown books should appreciate this fresh, energetic series about an irresistibly willful third grader.
—FamilyFun

Judy is just, well, intense, in that at-odds-with-the-whole-world way typical of third graders . . . this large-type chapter book is immensely funny . . . Fuming all the way, Judy Moody rules.
—FamilyFun
