In her eleventh misadventure, Judy Moody finds a lucky penny, only to lose it, recover it, and lose it again. Her good fortune comes and goes, too: she travels to Washington DC for her school's spelling bee, but misplaces a potbellied pig she's supposed to be tending. As always, newly independent readers will easily relate to Judy's charming flaws.
Kirkus Reviews
Judy Moody has an amazing run of good luck, perhaps due to the wonderful lucky coin she's started carrying. Imagine winning prize after prize from The Claw--a fishing-for-stuffed-animals arcade game. That's what happens to Judy with her new lucky penny. The good fortune doesn't stop there, however. She bowls a prizewinning game at a birthday party, and the tough word she's asked to spell in front of her third-grade class just happens to be posted on the bulletin board. Good luck can't last forever though; she drops her lucky penny in the toilet and then misspells the very first word during the class spelling bee. She's then asked to accompany classmate and bee winner Jessica to Washington, D.C., to babysit a pet piglet--that she accidentally almost loses. Character development is minimal but, Holy Baloney! McDonald's lively style still has lots of young-reader appeal, even after all these years and outings. Quirky black-and-white illustrations on almost every page accompany the large-font and good-humored text. Nothing truly compelling happens, but all of Judy's adventures are amusing and in sync with a third-grader's experience. The brisk pace and familiar situations are likely to keep young readers and listeners engaged. Another enjoyable outing with predictable Judy, just like a pleasant visit with an old friend. (Fiction. 6-9)

Will Judy’s lucky penny lead her to the nation’s capital — or to third-grade C-A-L-A-M-I-T-Y? And what do her spelling-bee nemesis and a potbellied pig have to do with it?

The lucky penny in Judy Moody’s pocket sure does seem to be working. She can’t stop winning — at bowling, spelling, the unbeatable Prize Claw, everything! For sure and absolute positive, she’ll ride that wave of good fortune all the way to Washington, D.C. Watch out, District of Cool, here comes Judy Moody, the luckiest kid ever, until . . . oh, no! Her lucky penny just did a belly flop into a porcelain bowl of yucky, blucky UNluck. Has the coin’s magic gone kerflooey?Are some people, like Jessica Finch or Stink, destined to have all the luck, while she, Judy Moody, gets stuck with a yard full of three-not-four leaf clovers, a squealing potbellied pig in an elevator, and a squashed penny with cooties? ROAR!
