Judy Moody Saves the World!

written by Megan McDonald, illustrated by Peter Reynolds

Judy Moody's third grade class is studying the environment so she tries to get her family to recycle trash and not use products that are made from the rain forest. But she doesn't have much luck because everyone in the family complains about giving up something they like. Then after learning that living creatures like toads should not be kept for pets, Judy, Frank and her best friend Rocky decide to let their club mascot, Toady, go free, but her little brother Skink is furious. Judy Moody was only trying to save the world --- and now she's in a whole lot of trouble. Grounded, too!

But Judy never gives up when she sets her mind on something. She dreams up a plan to rescue the trees all by herself, and before long she manages to make everyone in her third grade class mad at her, too. Will Judy find a way to help save the rain forest that will be truly helpful and win everyone's approval?
