It's the first day of school and Judy Moody is in a mood.  And it's NOT a good mood!  She is certain that third grade won't be as much fun as second.  But Judy is wrong.  Lots of funny and silly things happen as Judy works on her first homework assignment, a ME collage, with her little brother, Stink, and best friend, Rocky.  You'll laugh out loud when Judy gets a new pet, a fly-eating plant, and makes up the T.P. club.  (See if you can guess what T.P. stands for while you read this hilarious book.)  (Jean Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2003)
