Light and humorous reading. Judy becomes enamored of college life and its freedoms (compared to 3rd grade) when she is tutored in math by Chloe, an uber-cool college student. Judy makes the most of her "college experience," even becoming part of college's art show. ( )

Judy Moody continues her journey through the third grade, but this time, she has to go to college. Judy Moody's mean substitute teacher decides that she needs some extra help in math, so Judy Moody's parents find her a tutor. This puts Judy Moody in a mood, until she meets her tutor and realizes that she gets to spend some time in college! She learns how much better the cafeteria is in college, how people get to study in coffee shops, and how much fun math can be! Her peers in her class don't like how much Judy Moody talks about college, however. Her friends start to get annoyed with her, and eventually, they want to get bad grades in math so that they can go to college with her. Judy Moody learns that when it is her time, she will be a real college student, but until then, she is happy in the third grade, but still happy with her newly made college friend. ( )

Fun, fast-paced early chapter book about a third-grade girl who gets math tutoring from a college student. It's pretty accurate about what college is like (at least, all the parts of it you could get away with in a book for this age group), something a lot of kids might be curious about. Adorable illustrations. The heavy slang use might result in this one aging badly, though they somewhat get around this with a melange of 90s and 00s slang and some phrases that are unique to the protagonist.

Best line: Judy has to bring a note home to her parents about her poor performance in math, so she tears off the worst part. When they ask her about it, she explains "I rounded down." ( )

It's her funniest adventure yet! A few sessions with a college-age math tutor turn Judy into a jargon-spouting polygon princess. Crucial!

Judy Moody is in a mood. Not a good mood. And definitely NOT a math mood. The substitute teacher in Class 3T thinks Judy's math skills need improving. So Judy has to start meeting with a math tutor. Does this mean flash cards? Does this mean baby games? Does this mean school on weekends? But when Judy meets her tutor — a sick-awesome college student with an uber-funky sense of style — and gets a glimpse of college life, Judy's bad math-i-tude turns into a radical glad-i-tude. Pretty soon, Judy's not only acing her math class; she's owning it. Time to say good-bye to Judy Moody, old skool third-grader, and say hello to Miss College! Small-tall upside-down backward non-fat capp with extra whip, anyone?
