Judy gets a taste of her own medicine in a hilarious new episode sure to tickle your humerus (aka funny bone) and put you in a very Judy Moody mood!
She took her own temperature. With the fancy thermometer that beeped. It was not normal. It was not 98.6. Judy's temperature was 188.8! Judy's temperature was 00.0! Judy's temperature was beep-beep-beep-beep-beep. She, Judy Moody, had the temperature of an outer-space alien!
Judy Moody has a mood for every occasion, and now, she, Judy Moody, is in a medical mood! It's no secret that Judy wants to be like Elizabeth Blackwell, first woman doctor, when she grows up. So when Class 3T starts to study the Amazing Human Body, Judy can hardly wait to begin her better-than-best-ever third-grade projects: show-and-tell with something way rarer than a scab, a real-live ooey-gooey operation, and a cloning experiment that may create double trouble for Judy and her friends. RARE!
The vibrant Judy studies the human body in her third grade class, and takes a turn as a nurse, doctor, classroom zucchini surgeon, and tonsillitis-suffering patient. Of course she must take the "Hippo oath" and "swear to the Hippo guy" to do her "doctor best." Judy's usual sense of humor and unique ways of expressing herself are much in evidence, "for real and absolute positive." The fast-paced narrative involves sibling rivalry and even cloning, as Judy seeks to follow in the footsteps of Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman doctor. Reynolds's imaginative and energetic illustrations accompany the text.
