About Judy Moody and Stink
Judy Moody is a third-grader, avid collector, Saver of the Planet, and future doctor . . . but most of all, she is famous for her many moods. She and her pesky little “bother,” Stink, star in the wildly popular and award-winning Judy Moody and Stink series for middle-grade readers written by Megan McDonald, illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds, and published by Candlewick Press.

The tenth book in the Stink series, Stink and the Attack of the Slime Mold, will release in February 2016. And with the Judy Moody & Friends series for newly independent readers, kids of all ages can enjoy Judy and Stink!

Publisher’s Synopsis: On your mark, get set, Gobblers-a-Go-Go! Judy swears she’ll win the race for a Thanksgiving turkey (though Stink has his doubts) in this full-color Moody adventure.
The town’s annual Turkey Trot race and festival is coming up, and Judy and Stink are training to win. Judy has decided that she is going to take home the big prize: a fat, juicy turkey. They can taste it already: the moist turkey, the hot gravy, the savory stuffing, the cranberry sauce! Beep! Beep! Beep! That’s the sound of Stink’s Rapidfire Ultra XE611M25 stopwatch going off as Judy and Stink hop, crawl, and climb toward race day. But what if they don’t win a mouthwatering bird? What then? Flying turkey gizzards! Will the Moody family end up starving on T-day, like ye pilgrims of olde, or will Grandma Lou cook up a tasty Franksgiving solution?
