Judy Moody and the Bucket List

By Megan McDonald (Penguin)

Guest reviewed by Lily Todes (Age 9)
Judy Moody and the Bucket List was about a girl called Judy Moody. She had a grandmother who had a bucket list and Judy wants to create a bucket list of her own. A bucket list is a list of all the things people desire to do in their lives – things that they want to experience. Her bucket list has things like ‘learning to do a cartwheel, riding a horse and inventing something rad.’ To be honest, unfortunately, this book wasn’t my kind of book. I enjoy books that have more action and more mystery in them. Although her lists were quite amusing and interesting, so I am glad I read it.
Parents Note:
“Another day. Another mood. Meet Judy Moody at her moodiest-best, in this laugh-a-minute thirteenth adventure in the international bestselling series.”

Judy Moody is a bestselling series about a funny and feisty young girl and all the escapades she gets up to.  Judy is precocious, moody and full of individuality and attitude. Peter Reynold’s illustrations and the easy writing style make this the perfect first chapter book series for 6-9 year olds.  The Judy Moody books are similar to the Junie B Jones, Ramona Quimby and Clementine series of books.  Independent, single minded, highly spirited main characters who have a curiosity and zest for life.  There are 13 books in the series – the most well known is Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer which was made into a feature film.

There is a companion series of books about Judy’s young brother, Stink which fans may love too.
