Judy Moody was in a Mood

Judy Moody was in a Mood

written by Megan McDonald, illustrated by Peter Reynolds

When school starts, Judy Moody is not all that excited. In fact, she's in a bad mood just thinking about it. But when her teacher assigns each of the students to make a collage about themselves, she thinks this could be pretty interesting. She starts gathering pictures and things that she can use to show what she wants to be (a doctor) and her favorite hobby (collecting all kinds of things). The project is going pretty well, until she has to come up with "a favorite pet," and "a club you belong to." Next thing you know, Judy Moody is the proud owner of a Venus Flytrap and a member of the T. P. Club (and you'll never guess what the T.P. stands for!)

Enjoy the antics and adventures of Judy Moody as she finds her collage project, and her life, going from bad to worse. Is she just unlucky, or is it all in the way you look at things?
