Judy Moody and Stink: The Wishbone Wish

By Megan McDonald
Illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds

On your mark, get set, Gobblers-a-Go-Go! Judy swears she'll win the race for a Thanksgiving turkey (though Stink has his doubts) in this full-color Moody adventure.

The town's annual Turkey Trot race and festival is coming up, and Judy and Stink are training to win. Judy has decided that she is going to take home the big prize: a fat, juicy turkey. They can taste it already: the moist turkey, the hot gravy, the savory stuffing, the cranberry sauce! Beep! Beep! Beep!That's the sound of Stink's Rapidfire Ultra XE611M25 stopwatch going off as Judy and Stink hop, crawl, and climb toward race day. But what if they don't win a mouthwatering bird? What then? Flying turkey gizzards! Will the Moody family end up starving on T-day, like ye pilgrims of olde, or will Grandma Lou cook up a tasty Franksgiving solution?

  • A low-calorie treat for independent readers, fans of Judy Moody, fans of Stink Moody, and booksellers with Thanksgiving book displays and tables.
  • Features a Turkey Trot, a popular event in all 50 states, typically intended to stock local food pantries.
  • Stink and Judy work hard to practice and prepare for the events, a model that quietly promotes physical fitness, setting and achieving goals, working together toward a common goal, and even making lemonade if all you have is lemons (or turkey dogs if all you have is a big block of frozen-solid turkey!).
