About the book: Jolly smashing! Could the Moodys really have royal blood? Judy brings her new look to a comical episode about the ups and downs of exploring a family tree.
Judy Moody is in a royal purple-mountain-majesties mood. Make that Majesty with a capital M! With Grandma Lou’s help, Judy has dug up proof that some old-timey Moodys (aka the brave Mudeyes) lived in merry olde England. In fact, if her grandpa’s notes are right, Judy might even be related to — royal fanfare, please — the Queen herself! Should Judy start packing her purple robe for a sleepover at Buckingham Palace? But then Judy’s family tree gets a few more shakes — thanks to her nemesis, Jessica “Fink” Finch — and some more surprises come tumbling out. Crikey! These new gems are not nearly as shiny or sparkly as the crown jewels. Now Judy has some right royal family secrets she’d like to keep hidden away in a dungeon somewhere — and especially away from Jessica, the princess in pink herself!
Judy Moody is back! In the latest Judy Moody Chapter book by the name of Judy Moody and the Right Royal Tea Party, Judy tackles a school assignment to create a family tree. With the help of her grandmother, Judy's research leads her back to the time of Queen Elizabeth and could it be a possible family connection? Of course, Judy responds in her typical imaginative and bit over the top manner. Fans of the lovable third grader will enjoy the latest book. And I can't wait to see the final artwork for the new book.
Fans of the books will also notice that Judy Moody has a new look. Candlewick Press has just relaunched the Judy Moody series with a redesigned cover by Peter H. Reynolds. And the newest Judy Moody title will be released in September.
