Judy Moody, Book Quiz Whiz

By Megan McDonald
Illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds

Books, books, books! Judy’s got books on the brain as she prepares for a totally RARE trivia competition. Has reading always been this exciting?

Judy Moody is in it to win it. Win the Book Quiz Blowout, that is. Judy and her brother, Stink, are two-fifths of the Virginia Dare Bookworms, and they’ve been reading up a storm to prepare for Saturday’s face-off against second- and third-grade readers from the next town. Judy’s trying out all kinds of tactics, from hanging upside down like Pippi Longstocking to teaching herself to speed read The Princess in Black, and Stink has fashioned a cape of book trivia sticky notes to help him remember all the penguins in Mr. Popper’s Penguins. But when Judy, Stink, and their fellow teammates discover the other group has a fourth-grader (no lie!), they get a bit nervous. Are the Bookworms up to the challenge?

  • Judy Moody and Stink are equal participants in this fast-paced race for the win
  • An engaging romp through children's literature, classic and modern, that will have readers shouting out the answers to the trivia questions, rereading old favorites, or diving into books they've never read
  • Sure to be embraced and promoted by the biggest book pushers and dealers -- teachers, librarians, booksellers, reading and language arts specialists
