Movie Tie-In Edition

This is a review of the movie tie-in edition of this book. It was released with the movie. This spring they will be releasing a standard edition with illustrations by Peter H. Reynolds. I can say having read 4 books so far, in either the Judy Moody or Stink Moody series, I missed the illustrations. The sketches and drawings by Reynolds really add to the story. With this edition, just having still photos from the movie it seemed like something was missing as I read the book. The story by Megan McDonald was still great, but the team of McDonald and Reynolds is amazing. I am already planning on reading the standard edition when it comes out just so I can read it with the illustrations. That being said, it was still a fun read and a great story.

In this adventure, Judy Moody has planned the perfect summer for herself and her friends. They will have a challenge to see who can accumulate the most points as the ultimate way to have a NOT bummer summer. They can earn thrill points, dare points, and bonus points by doing various activities. But Judy did not know that Rocky was going to Circus camp and Amy going to Borneo. Her plans for the summer seem to evaporate. But the kids come up with a work around where they will each do challenges separately and share what they did and how many points they got.

The chapters are:
No More Snoresville
Aunt Awful
Gross grub Club
Thrills and Spills
Puke Monster
Goliath Glue
Poop Picnic
Code Bigfoot
The Chase Is On

But soon even that seems to slip out of Judy's grasp as her parents need to fly across the country to help her grandparents. She is stuck at home with no travel, and an Aunt she doesn't know. Can her summer get any worse? Her younger brother Stink has joined a Big foot Club and is trying to capture Big Foot as there have been numerous sightings in town. So you have to read to find out if Judy can find a way to have a NOT bummer summer, or will she hide out in her room until school starts again, and also to find out more about Stink and Bigfoot. This is a great story in an awesome series. These books each stand apart so you can read them in any order. So if you haven't read a Judy Moody book, give this one a try, and if you have I know you will love it.
