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!
School Library Journal : Grade 3-4–Judy Moody returns, and here her medical aspirations go undeterred as she runs the gamut of roles from third-grade med student to nurse, doctor, and patient. She is learning about the human body in Mr. Todd's class, is excited about her project to dress as Elizabeth Blackwell, and will even perform surgery on a live object in front of the class. McDonald once again creates a feisty, individualistic, "RARE!" third grader with a very active imagination, keen wit, and a strong desire to explore the world around her. The author's humor and language are right on target, from describing the ups and downs in Judy's world, sibling rivalry, and conflicts with friends to a hilarious cloning episode. As always, there are facts to be learned and loads of puns and playful language to entertain readers. This is another winner, "for real and absolute positive."
Booklist : Gr. 2-4. When her third-grade class studies the human body, Judy Moody dives into the topic with characteristic zeal and imagination. For a class project, she dresses as Elizabeth Blackwell, even attaching fake leeches to her head, reads her poem about the first woman doctor, and performs surgery on a zucchini. Dr. Judy prescribes Popsicles and prunes for her brother's tonsillitis but soon finds herself in bed with the same illness. Worse, she becomes the butt of a cleverly orchestrated practical joke. The class field trip and anatomy lessons are liberally laced with jokes and "humerus" word play, but McDonald never resorts to coarse humor. She finds ample comedy in the way children mishear words and mangle information. Reynolds' buoyant sketches depict Judy's ups and downs in this fifth book of a series that proves laughter can be contagious.
