Judy Moody and the Right Royal Tea Party

By Megan McDonald
Illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds

Jolly smashing! Could the Moodys really have royal blood? Judy brings her new look to a comical episode about the ups and downs of exploring a family tree.

Judy Moody is in a royal purple-mountain-majesties mood. Make that Majesty with a capital M! With Grandma Lou’s help, Judy has dug up proof that some old-timey Moodys (aka the brave Mudeyes) lived in merry olde England. In fact, if her grandpa’s notes are right, Judy might even be related to — royal fanfare, please — the Queen herself! Should Judy start packing her purple robe for a sleepover at Buckingham Palace? But then Judy’s family tree gets a few more shakes — thanks to her nemesis, Jessica “Fink” Finch — and some more surprises come tumbling out. Crikey! These new gems are not nearly as shiny or sparkly as the crown jewels. Now Judy has some right royal family secrets she’d like to keep hidden away in a dungeon somewhere — and especially away from Jessica, the princess in pink herself!

  • A brand new Judy Moody novel (the 14th), timed to coincide with the reissues of books 1-13, which will sport a bright new look in paperback, and a global marketing strategy for 2018 that will bring Judy Moody back to center stage around the world, but particularly in key markets U.S., U.K., and Australia/NZ.
  • As with all of the Judy Moody and Stink novels, curriculum connections abound: genealogy, historical fact and fiction, family legends and lore, geography.
  • Judy's nemesis and royal pain, Jessica Finch, plays a big role in this story and its surprising outcome, a revelation that will leave readers gob-smacked (or at least choking on their tea and biscuits!)
