Judy Moody & Stink: The Wishbone Wish

Book Review: Judy Moody & Stink: The Wishbone Wish

Author: Megan McDonald

Illustrator: Peter H. Reynolds

Book Divas Review by: Lisa Loucks Christenson

Megan McDonald's newest book,  Judy Moody & Stink: A Wishbone Wish is, well, "Frankly," a book to gobble up this Thanksgiving! A delightful tale for readers who will not only learn a thing or few about how Thanksgiving came to be a holiday, but a few things about secret wishes, annual festivals, contracts, and keeping your eyes-on-the-prize. You'll be laughing all the way through Thanksgiving dinner as you remember how Judy Moody & Stink and family celebrated and shared their Thanksgiving Day feast. In fact, you'll probably never be more thankful for your own turkey and all the fixings. 

You'll love the fun illustrations by Peter H. Reynold who captures the emotions of the Judy Moody & Stink, flawlessly, with so much detail you can hear the wishbones snap here and crack there!

Parents and kids will relate to Judy's confidence as she holds up her diorama for the readers to get a close up look. This book is full of fun memories that'll draw you in and make you want to do the Turkey Trot, or cake walk! In the end you'll join their Thanksgiving meal and probably be eyeing their plate heaped with the meat of a story that will long be remembered! 

After the story, Megan has included for her readers a treat sharing some interesting facts about Sarah Josepha Hale that will give you some cool information to share at your own Thanksgiving meal, which, you probably wouldn't be celebrating at all, if it wasn't for the persistence of Sarah Joesepha Hale.
