School Library Journal - 11/01/2003 Gr 2-4-After eating seven bowls of cereal, third-grader Judy finally uncovers her mystery prize- a mood ring. It stubbornly stays black ("Grouchy, Impossible") after she slips it on, but over time the ring warms up to her. She thinks it has ESP, which allows her to make some outlandish predictions. Judy (as Madame M) forecasts she will ace her spelling test without studying. Naturally she doesn't, nor does she foresee getting in trouble with Mr. Todd, her teacher, after distracting the class with her prized possession. Judy's brother and friends are skeptical about the girl's newfound ability but with a few lucky guesses and a lot of confidence, Madame M marvels them with the biggest prophesy of all: Mr. Todd is in love. Established fans and new readers of the series will enjoy this adventure. Amusing black-and-white watercolors capture the humor and the girl's inimitable spirit.

Booklist - 09/15/2003 Perennial favorite Judy Moody returns in a fourth offering, this one focusing on Judy's psychic abilities, or, more accurately, her lack thereof. Judy claims the prize at the bottom of her cereal box--a mood ring--and tries to convince her family and third-grade classmates that she can foretell the future. She predicts the return of the Toad Pee Club's lost mascot, a brilliant performance on her spelling test, and her teacher's romance with the Crayon Lady. Unfortunately, the mascot is a fake and she bombs the test, but her forecast is right on the mark when it comes to Mr. Todd and Ms. Tater. McDonald has a wonderful sense of how eight-year-olds think and behave, and the irrepressible Judy is completely believable as she careens out of control in the classroom, earning time to chill out at the Antarctica desk at the back of the room. Reynolds' black-and-white illustrations convey the suitably goofy personalities of Judy and her friends and will appeal to kids; short chapters and large print add to the book's appeal. This is a great choice for first-chapter-book readers, especially those already acquainted with Judy. - Copyright 2003 Booklist.
