Judy Moody and Stink: The Big Bad Blackout

By Megan McDonald
Illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds

Hold on to your umbrella and stock up on marshmallows – Judy Moody and Stink face wicked weather in their third full-colour adventure.

In their third full-colour adventure, Judy Moody and Stink face some wicked weather – and a night without any electricity! Hold on to your umbrella and stock up on marshmallows – Hurricane Elmer is coming to town! The Moody family hunker down with baked beans and batteries to wait out the storm. But along with massive rain and strong winds, Hurricane Elmer throws down ghosts, bionic squirrels and aliens. Spooky! Just when things couldn’t possibly get any freakier – flicker, flicker, gulp! – the lights go O-U-T out. The Moodys are smack-dab in the middle of a big bad blackout! Grandma Lou proposes musical board games and some good old-fashioned storytelling. Will Hurricane Elmer go down in Moody family history as bad news, a happy memory or simply an LBS (Long Boring Story)?

  • The third full-colour adventure starring the Moody siblings, Judy and Stink.
  • Parents, teachers, librarians and booksellers will love this chapter book about unplugged time spent telling stories, playing games and gathering together as a family.
  • In this era of superstorms and extreme weather, a timely story of the Moody family's experience during a blackout caused by a hurricane.
