Judy Moody Book Quiz Whiz

“Authors and titles and plots, oh my!”

Synopsis

Books, books, books! Judy’s got books on the brain as she prepares for a totally RARE trivia competition. Has reading always been this exciting?

Judy Moody is in it to win it. Win the Book Quiz Blowout, that is. Judy and her brother, Stink, are two-fifths of the Virginia Dare Bookworms, and they’ve been reading up a storm to prepare for Saturday’s face-off against second- and third-grade readers from the next town. Judy’s trying out all kinds of tactics, from hanging upside down like Pippi Longstocking to teaching herself to speed read The Princess in Black, and Stink has fashioned a cape of book trivia sticky notes to help him remember all the penguins in Mr. Popper’s Penguins. But when Judy, Stink, and their fellow teammates discover the other group has a fourth-grader (no lie!), they get a bit nervous. Are the Bookworks up to the challenge?

#MelAndNikkiReview

Judy Moody Book Quiz Whiz is such an amazing book to read! But then again it is a Judy Moody book and they should be great! 😉

Never in my wildest dreams did I think book reading would be as exciting as it was in this book. The trivia competition had me on the edge of my seat as I wondered who would take it all as I was cheering for Judy of course! This book did not disappoint! What I found neat about this one was the referencing of other books within it and at the back of the book, every single book that was mentioned is referenced. LOVE THAT! Judy Moody Book Quiz Whiz is just simply great and a must read for young readers.

Therefore, for this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give it 5 stars out of 5! Keep inspiring us Judy Moody and encouraging young minds to love reading.

Judy Moody and Friends: Searching for Stinkodon

“Surprises are in store as Stink excavates his backyard in search of a relic from an extinct beast – and Judy lends him a little sleight of hand.”

Synopsis

Mega-chomp! Stink wants to make the find of the century. He’s on a dig, digging quest in his backyard to find a tooth from a sabre-toothed cat, otherwise known as a Smilodon. Why not? Two kids in Michigan found a mastodon bone in a backyard stream, and a girl in Great Britain found a pterosaur bone. It could happen! But Judy thinks the chances of finding a sabre-toothed anything in the Moody backyard are one in a gazillion million. Will Stink make a discovery before their whole backyard caves in?

#MelAndNikkiReview

Judy Moody and Friends: Searching for Stinkodon is exactly what you can expect from a Judy Moody book – awesome! Absolutely adored it from beginning to end and so will your newly independent reader.

The story flowed beautifully and had a great storyline! The illustrations are captivating and makes the read even more enjoyable. I loved Stink’s determination and motivation to find a tooth from a sabre-toothed cat. Now I am not spoiling the story as you will have to read to see if anything is found. But it truly was a great adventure to read.

Therefore, for this #MelAndNikkiReview we give it 10 Smilodon smiles out of 5! 😉 If you would like to purchase a copy for your new independent reader, click here.
