Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Reissued in a way-cool paperback design!
Judy Moody cannot believe her ears. There at the lunch table, a girl called Amy Namey is interviewing Judy's best friends, Rocky and Frank. Even worse, Amy is dressed like Nellie Bly, daredevil woman reporter, much like Judy's emulation of a certain woman doctor. Is this clipboard-carrying girl destined to be Judy's new best enemy? Or new best friend? Judy Moody finds some unexpected potholes on the path to friendship as Class 3T takes a whirlwind tour of the globe, investigating everything from tooth-brushing sticks in Yemen to an Italian "spider dance" along the way. Fans will cheer as Judy finally masters the challenge of making new friends and keeping the old — for sure and absolute positivo!

Suddenly, she banged into a desk, tripped over her own foot, and fell in a red, white, and green heap on the floor. “Oops. Was it too fast?” Rocky asked innocently. “Stupido!” Judy mumbled. She, Judy Moody, knew that Rocky and Frank had

That’s not one of the countries we’re studying,” said Mr. Todd. “I have money from Italy,” said Rocky. “And some carbone dolce. It’s black rock candy that looks like coal.” “Ooh, I have tea from London,” said Judy. “That’s in England. And I have a cuckoo clock in my bedroom that my grandma Lou brought me all the way from Germany.” “Tell you what,” said Mr. Todd. “These are all good ideas, but let’s
“Like spaghetti, parmesan, and P-I-N-O-C-C-H-I-O.” “Not even grownups can spell the word Pinocchio,” said Rocky. “Everybody would flunk.” “We could make a Leaning Tower of Pizza!” said Frank. “Out of what?” asked Judy. “Pizza tables! You collect them,” said Frank. “Yeah, we could glue them all together into a tower,” said Rocky. “No way!” said Judy. “I’m not letting you go all glue-crazy on my whole collection. Stick to eating paste.” “Nobody’s eating paste,” said Rocky. “Just pizza.”
and rice with their fingers! Then they got to try brushing their teeth with a stick, like Nellie Bly! In Egypt, they built a giant sugar-cube pyramid. And in Japan, Judy got to try on a kimono and learn kirigami, the Japanese art of paper cutting. In China, they made brush paintings and ate fortune cookies (that were really from the Happy Garden Chinese Restaurant, not China!). “What does your fortune say?” Judy asked Amy Namey. “Nice!” said Judy. “How about yours?” asked Amy. “What’s it
