Judy Moody and the Right Royal Tea Party by Megan McDonald
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Judy Moody was one of my daughter's favorites. It was weird and sweet to read Judy's return as my daughter is in high school. It actually made me wonder what Judy would be like as a high schooler.
In this new tale Judy is just as we left her - impulsive, self-centered, and hilarious.
Judy gets the notion that she may be part of the English monarchy. She writes to the Queen (and receives a response!) and begins to align her life with what she imagines royalty would do. It isn't a Judy Moody tale without conflict that forces Judy to apologize to someone. She realizes that her relatives may not quite be royalty.
What I like the best about Judy is that she often does something that requires an apology, even if it is to herself. Since these books are meant for kids ages 6-8, it is great to have a beloved character who loves with full passion, sometimes gets carried away, but does end up handling things with grace.
Welcome back, Judy!
