Judy Moody and the Bucket List

By Megan McDonald
Illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds

Drumroll, please: Judy Moody is about to become a poop-scooping, hinny-riding, one-girl band extraordinaire as she takes on her very own Bucket List.

Judy is visiting Grandma Lou one day when she accidentally finds an uber-mysterious list of activities — a Bucket List! Which gives Judy an idea: How rare would it be if she made her own way-official bucket list of all the things she wants to do—before she starts fourth grade? Pretty soon Judy is off and running trying to cross off all her items: learn to do a cartwheel, invent something rad, go to Antarctica (the real one), ride a horse—the list goes on. But what happens if Grandma Lou achieves everything on her list? Does that mean she’ll be ready to . . . kick the bucket?

  • The first new Judy Moody novel since August 2014.
  • One of the most poignant Judy Moody books yet. When Judy chances to discover Grandma Lou's "Bucket List," Judy is schooled in the concept and can't help but ponder what it means that her grandmother's list is nearly complete!
  • Judy inevitably comes up with her own "Bucket List" of things to accomplish before the Fourth Grade. That list serves to form the book's structure and leads Judy and readers into a wide variety of never-beforeseen settings and outlandish situations.
