Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer by Megan McDonald
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is my first Judy Moody Book. I don’t always read the same books as my kids nor do I always read the books with my kids. But I did end up reading this one aloud with them over the summer, I am sure you can guess why based on the title.
I must say I much prefer the character of Judy Moody to that nasty little girl, Junie B. Jones. I really can’t stand Junie. Any child who acted the way she did would banned from house forever!
In this book, Judy Moody is left with her aunt Opal for the summer. She plans a summer of adventures that all seem to go sideways. At the sametime, Stink (Judy’s younger brother) is hunting for Bigfoot.
The Bigfoot subplot as well as the crazy aunt add a lot to book and certainly make it entertaining for kids.
As something for kids to read over the summer, this book hits the mark.
