Description


"A humorous peek at the world through the eyes of a precocious third grader. . . . This entertaining journey will have easy-chapter-book readers lining up for the trip." — SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

Judy Moody cannot believe her ears. There at the lunch table, a girl called Amy Namey is interviewing Judy’s best friends. Even worse, Amy is dressed like Nellie Bly, daredevil woman reporter. Is this girl with the rhyming name destined to be Judy Moody’s new best enemy —- or new best friend? Judy finds some unexpected potholes on the path to friendship as Class 3T takes a tour of the globe, exploring everything from tooth-brushing sticks in Yemen to an Italian "spider dance" along the way. Fans will cheer as Judy masters the challenge of making new friends and keeping the old, for sure and absolute POSITIVO!
