Grade 3-4–Judy Moody's individuality is threatened when she meets fellow third-grader Amy Namey. Not only do they have first and last names that rhyme, but they also idolize pioneering women and have quirky collections. Just when the two strong personalities seem destined to collide, they hit it off. Much to the chagrin of Amy's best friends, Rocky and Frank, the girls join the My-Name-Is-a-Poem Club and become inseparable. When the entire third grade starts an assignment that will take them Around the World in Eight Days, Judy's fascination with her new friend sparks a project-threatening feud with which many readers will identify. This book gives a humorous and familiar peek at the world through the eyes of a precocious third grader. It is filled with original, yet true-to-life characters who will make readers wish for a friend like Amy. The silly rhymes and wordplay are the perfect humor for young readers. Pen-and-ink cartoons add to the fun. An entertaining journey that will have easy-chapter-book readers lining up for the trip.–Heather Dieffenbach, Lexington Public Library, KY

Gr. 2-4. When Judy Moody meets Amy Namey, she bridles at the girl's similarities to her own proudly unique persona. They soon become great friends, however, but in her enthusiasm for Amy, Judy slights her old pals Rocky and Frank. In one amusing scene, Judy's little brother acts as a conversational go-between, relaying comments between his sister and Rocky, who's not (technically) speaking to Judy. Like others in the series, this book features a reader-friendly format, on-target humor, and convincing depictions of third-graders in action at school and at home. Illustrations not seen.

No-Talky Rocky vs. Judy Snooty
In this adventure, there is a new girl at school, Amy Namey. And she seems to be a lot like Judy Moody. At first Judy is jealous of Frank and Rocky's interactions with Amy, but soon the tables have turned and Judy upsets them by spending so much time with Amy. Judy upsets them so much, they stop talking to her and even refuse to help on a school group project. Judy works hard to make things up to them and help the two classes make it around the world in 8 and 1/2 days.
I really enjoyed what Megan McDonald and Peter H Reynolds did in this book. It was different from the others in the series and as such we saw more development in Judy. It was another great read in an absolutely wonderful series.

“I think this book is really funny because in one part of the story Judy could come up with eight names for brother Stink like ‘Stink Mc Fink, Stink Lewink,Stink the Shrink ,Stink-a-Link,Stinky Dinky,Stinks a Jinks, Stinky Pink,and Stinky Blinky.”
I would recommend this book because it is really funny and it kind of reminds me of my little brother because I always make tricks on him or prank him all the time
