Review: Judy Moody (Mood Martian) by Megan McDonald

Mood Martian (Judy Moody #12)








It’s Backwards Day, so Judy Moody double-dares herself to become Queen of the Good Mood for one whole week. Can she do it?

Will the real Judy Moody please stand up? In honor of Backwards Day, Judy Moody decides to turn that frown upside down, make lemonade out of lemons, and be nice to stinky little brothers. In fact, Judy becomes a NOT moody, cool-as-a-cucumber neat freak for one whole entire day. But when her combed hair, matching outfits, and good moods hang around for days after, her friends begin to worry. Could this smiley Judy be an impostor?

Judy Moody: Mood Martian by Megan McDonald is the best novel yet. In this tale, I got to watch Judy Moody show a different side to herself than her usual self. In fact, her family started to think she wasn’t really Judy…at all. The change was pleasant and welcoming.

Judy Moody is a young girl who has a wild imagination and a good heart. She wants to be good, but her plans always went wrong. There was always a big oops, somewhere if not everywhere she went.

I was surprised by how much Judy changed and grew up. Her personality is still creative as ever. I laughed a lot. Her and Stink will always be my favorite two characters in this series.

Judy Moody: Mood Martian is about Judy trying not to be her usual Moody self. Readers familiar with the series all know how moody Judy Moody can get at times. Her ways of accomplishing not being moody was interesting! I definitely recommend this book story to all. Judy did make a lot of boo boos as usual, but she somehow ended up at the top. I liked the themes and the new adventure presented. The illustrations were great. They went well with each chapter. Overall, I highly recommend this book to readers everywhere.

My Review:

The Gallery of Wonders by Marc Remus is the most fascinating children’s book that I have read. An illustrator at heart, Marc Remus has turned his illustrations into much more than just words on blank pages. He has beautifully created worlds where a child’s imagination can soar. Adventure, suspense, and a fun world filled with extraordinary things and places one can only dream of. Marc’s talent as a writer is definitely one that readers should look for. His writing is captivating. I highly recommend Marc Remus’s novel, The Gallery of Wonders to both children and adults alike. Who would have thought that a world of painting can be so exciting?

The Gallery of Wonders is a must read for every child. The story is fast-paced and packed with enough action to keep the children turning the pages.  Inside, this remarkable well-written masterpiece, readers will find a young girl worrying about her grandpa. She sees a fire coming from his place and tries calling for help. Her step family won’t let her and yet she goes after her grandpa hoping to help him. Soon, Holly will lose the only family member that cared about her…but all is not lost. Marc Remus then takes readers on one addictive rollercoaster ride of a life time. One that’s involves a painting. A painting that takes Holly and a few others to a world no one knew about. There anything that is drawn comes to life. Readers will have a blast following Holly and friends on their journey. The ending will leave readers wondering what happens next…The good news is that Marc Remus has another book coming soon. Overall, I loved this children’s book and look forward to reading more by Marc Remus in the future.
