The Judy Moody Mood Journal

Megan McDonald. Candlewick Press (MA), $9.99 (128pp) ISBN 978-0-7636-2236-7

Judy Moody Predicts the Future in the famously temperamental third-grader's fourth adventure by Megan McDonald, illus. by Peter H. Reynolds. Here Judy, equipped with a mood ring, convinces herself and her classmates of her clairvoyant capabilities. Fans can track their own mood swings with The Judy Moody Mood Journal; the paper-over-board volume, with lined pages and Reynolds's occasional spot art, sports a spinner set into the cover, whose arrow (when spun) lands on one of 10 possible Judy moods. Sections such as ""Favorite Pets"" suggest prompts and provide quotes from the books to spark budding writers' entries.
