Another day. Another mood. Meet Judy Moody at her moodiest best, in this laugh-a-minute third adventure in the international bestselling series.

Judy’s learning about the environment at school. When she hears about the threats to the rainforest and endangered species – not to mention her own family’s poor recycling habits – Judy’s determined to whip the planet into shape!

Review 2017

Judy Moody is a series of book about a young girl of around 8/9 years old. She lives with her parents and her brother Stink (he has his own series of books). I reviewed the first book is the series title ‘Judy Moody‘ a couple of weeks ago. Today I am reviewing another book from the series ‘Judy Moody Saves the World’.

At school, Judy’s class are doing a project on the environment and how we are destroying it and how it can be saved. The pupils are to come up with some ways to help save the Earth. They are also learning about endangered animals and are each given an animal to find out about. Judy’s was the ‘North-east Tiger Beetle’, which she found there was very little information about.

As well as trying to save the Earth, both Judy and Stink have entered a competition to have their drawings on band-aids (plasters).

The Judy Moody books are great fun. Judy has a big personality for such a little girl. She also has great friends, classmates, teachers, and family that all play a part in the stories.

This book covers a wonderful and important subject, The Planet and how to help save it from destruction. It will teach young children about recycling, light pollution, noise pollution and about some endangered animals too. There is also a section about an activist called Julia Butterfly Hill who lived in a 1500-year-old California redwood tree for 738 days to prevent loggers working for a big company cutting it down. I’d never heard of Julia before.

The books are filled with lots of humour and provide children with a brilliant light-hearted story that they can get engrossed in. The series is also pretty big with at least thirteen books and that’s not including the spin-offs and the movie too.

I believe that children will adore these books. They are a great read and include some wonderful black and white illustrations too which add to the overall enjoyment.

About the Author

Megan McDonald

“Sometimes I think I am Judy Moody,” says Megan McDonald, author of the Judy Moody series, the Stink series, and THE SISTERS CLUB. “I’m certainly moody, like she is. Judy has a strong voice and always speaks up for herself. I like that.”

For Megan McDonald, being able to speak up for herself wasn’t always easy. She grew up as the youngest of five sisters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her father, an ironworker, was known to his coworkers as “Little Johnny the Storyteller.” Every evening at dinner the McDonalds would gather to talk and tell stories, but Megan McDonald was barely able to get a word in edgewise. “I’m told I began to stutter,” she says, leading her mother to give her a notebook so she could start “writing things down.”
