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!

Who knew? Tarantella means ‘tarantula.’ For real and absolute positive. My

Judy made her feet go faster and faster until her head was dizzy and her hair was in her mouth. “Too — puff puff — fast!” she panted. “Slow — puff puff — down!” Huff puff puff. But nobody seemed to hear. The music kept going faster and faster. Frank shook the tambourine faster than an earthquake. Judy whirled and twirled, a dizzy dancing

I made a globe this morning. It’s still kind of wet.” She held up a big gloppy papier-mâché ball. “Here’s where she started, in Hoboken.” “She started in Hobo Land?” “Hoboken is in New Jersey,” said Amy. “And she went to England, France, Italy. Then Egypt, in Africa.” The route was marked

There was gum in her hair, gum on her nose, gum on her pants, gum on her coat. “What happened to you?” asked Stink. “Attack of the Killer Gumball?” “Hardee-har-har, Stink. I was making gum at Amy Namey’s with my Make-Your-Own-Gum Kit. It was way fun.” “Aw, you didn’t wait for me?” “No, but I made some special just for you.
