Judy Moody and Friends
JUDY MOODY AND FRIENDS by Megan McDonald with illustrations by Erwin Madrid. Candlewick Press, 2014.
JESSICA FINCH IN PIG TROUBLE
ROCKY ZANG IN THE AMAZING MR. MAGIC
Megan McDonald's new series will be a blessing for those younger kids whose older siblings read her novels already. Here are easy reading chapter books featuring some of Judy's friends from the neighborhood. Rocky Zang is working hard on magic tricks (with Judy's help, of course). Jessica wants a pig more than anything else for her birthday. The stories are straightforward, incredibly realistic, and just plain fun.
