Description

Books, books, books! Judy’s got books on the brain as she prepares for a totally RARE trivia competition. Has reading always been this exciting?

Judy Moody is in it to win it. Win the Book Quiz Blowout, that is. Judy and her brother, Stink, are two-fifths of the Virginia Dare Bookworms, and they’ve been reading up a storm to prepare for Saturday’s face-off against second- and third-grade readers from the next town. Judy’s trying out all kinds of tactics, from hanging upside down like Pippi Longstocking to teaching herself to speed read The Princess in Black, and Stink has fashioned a cape of book trivia sticky notes to help him remember all the penguins in Mr. Popper’s Penguins. But when Judy, Stink, and their fellow teammates discover the other group has a fourth-grader (no lie!), they get a bit nervous. Are the Bookworms up to the challenge?

Editorial Reviews

Determination and hard work prepare Judy Moody as she tests her knowledge of book trivia in a battle of the books...Another win for Judy and her friends.
—Kirkus Reviews

Judy Moody, her brother Stink, and all their friends are back in a new book all about books...junior bibliophiles will appreciate the name-dropping, and all the books mentioned are listed in the back for further research. Reynolds’s drawings are as charming as ever and round out this enjoyable tale.
