About the Author

Megan McDonald is the creator of the popular and award-winning Judy Moody and Stink series. She is also the author of three Sisters Club stories, Ant and Honey Bee: A Pair of Friends at Halloween, and many other books for children. She lives in Sebastopol, California. Peter H. Reynolds is the illustrator of the Stink and Judy Moody books and the
author-illustrator of The Dot, Ish, Sky Color, So Few of Me, The North Star, and Rose's Garden. Born in Canada, he now lives in Dedham, Massachusetts.


Gr 2-4-Judy's luck seems to change when her Grandma Lou gives her a "way-old penny from the 1970s" that has a four-leaf clover inside a horseshoe on one side. Judy keeps it in her pocket and suddenly can't stop winning. She beats the unbeatable prize claw at the diner, she wins the bowling challenge at Jessica Finch's birthday party, and she gets a lucky break with her spelling word. Judy decides that it must be her lucky penny and is determined to use that luck to win a trip to Washington, DC, where she will represent her class in the Great Third Grade Spelling Bee. When she accidentally drops the penny in the toilet bowl, Judy's luck appears to take a turn for the worse. She gets a "way-hard word" and loses her class spelling bee. But, as luck has it, Judy ends up going to Washington anyway-as a babysitter for Jessica Finch's pet pig. This audio version is read by veteran and award winning narrator, Barbara Rosenblat does an outstanding job of reading the latest book (Candlewick, 2012) in the series by Megan McDonald. She does an outstanding job of giving distinct and likeable voices to each character, making this audio version a great listening adventure.-Amy Joslyn, Fairport Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2012.

McDonald's lively style still has lots of young-reader appeal... All of Judy's adventures are amusing and in sync with a third-grader's experience. The brisk pace and familiar situations are likely to keep young readers and listeners engaged. Another enjoyable outing with predictable Judy, just like a pleasant visit with an old friend.
