The book Judy Moody is about a girl who doesn't want to go to school.
She had a 'bummer summer' because she stayed home all summer. She
doesn't want to go to her first day of school because she's worried
that everybody will be wearing new T-shirts except her. She felt like
she didn't do anything interesting during the Summer. But then her Dad
said "You went fishing and ate a shark". Judy got so excited that she
ran upstairs and grabbed a plain white T-shirt and wrote "I ATE A
SHARK". After this she ran out feeling joyful.
I liked this book because I can relate to Judy. Sometimes I don't like
going to school because some of the subjects are boring. I also liked
this book because it's a long chapter book and I like reading long
chapter books. The illustrations are really creative.
I would recommend this book to my friends because I think they would
enjoy it like I do. This book is similar to Junie B. Jones. Judy and
Junie are both lazy and funny. Their names kind of sound the same. I
think that some people will like this book like I do.
