Third grader Judy Moody is in a first day of school bad mood until she gets an assignment to create a collage all about herself and begins creating her masterpiece, the Me collage.
When Judy Moody arrived in third grade, her teacher, Mr. Todd, stood by the door, welcoming everyone. "Hello there, Judy."
"Hello, Mr. Toad," said Judy. She cracked herself up.
"Class, please hang your backpacks on the hooks and put your lunches in the cubbies," said Mr. Todd.
Judy Moody looked around the classroom. "Do you have a porcupine named Roger?" Judy asked Mr. Todd.
"No, but we have a turtle named Tucson. Do you like turtles?"
She liked turtles! But she caught herself just in time. "No. I like toads." Judy cracked up again.
"Judy Moody was in a mood. Not a good mood. A bad mood. A mad-faced mood."
To start, Judy Moody doesn't have high hopes for third grade. Her new desk won't have an armadillo sticker with her name on it. Her new classroom will not have a porcupine named Roger. And with her luck, she'll get stuck sitting in the first row, where Mr. Todd will notice every time she tries to pass a note to her best friend, Rocky. An aspiring doctor, Judy does have a little brother who comes in handy for practicing medicine, a cool new pet, and a huge Band-Aid collection.
Judy also has an abundance of individuality and attitude, and when Mr. Todd assigns a very special class project, she really gets a chance to express herself! Megan McDonald's spirited text and Peter Reynolds's wry illustrations combine in a feisty, funny first chapter book for every kid who has ever felt a little out of sorts.
