Book-to-Movie :: Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer

"Judy Moody was in a mood. Not a good mood. A bad mood. A mad-faced mood."

Today, Friday June 10th, is the release date of the movie, Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer. From the trailer, it looks like a fun, summer, kid-movie. From just the previews, it seems like a lot of fun and very much like the Judy Moody in the books.

Over the years, I've had several students really get into the Judy Moody series. I think it's a little bit more popular with younger kids because it's a pretty easy read for my 5th graders. It's more of a 3rd/4th grade read.

The thing I love the most about the Judy Moody series are the beautiful pictures. I love the illustrations and they seem to really capture the essence of Judy Moody and all her moods so well. They're fun to look at and I love looking at all the little details on each page. They also just re-released the books with brand new covers.

About a month ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Megan McDonald at the LA Times Festival of Books. She was promoting her upcoming movie, Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer. My students over the years LOVE reading Judy Moody and I was so excited to see her speak and get her autograph.

It was such a pleasure to meet Megan McDonald and to congratulate her on her upcoming movie.
