Judy Moody Declares Independence Paperback – Illustrated, April 10, 2018
Enhance your purchase
When a visit to Boston spurs Judy's interest in Revolutionary heroes and heroines, she's soon on a quest for more independence in this hilarious new episode from Megan McDonald and Peter H. Reynolds. Huzzah!
She, Judy Moody, would hereby, this day, make the Judy Moody Declaration of Independence. With alien rights and her own Purse of Happiness and everything.
Hear ye! Hear ye! Everyone knows that Judy Moody has a mood for every occasion, and now a visit to Boston has put our famous third grader in a revolutionary mood. When Judy meets an English girl named Tori at the Tea Party ship, she is gobsmacked to learn how many liberties her British friend enjoys — her very own phone, private loo, and pounds of allowance. When a day of cheerfully doing her chores doesn't earn Judy Moody more rights, and staging a revolt in the form of a tea-throwing Boston Tub Party has her dad reading the riot act, Judy is forced into temporary retreat. Who would guess that a real-life crisis involving her brother, Stink, would finally give Judy a chance to show her courageous quick thinking – and prove her independence, once and for all?

Frequently bought together
Fans get a history lesson delivered with humor, as Judy petitions for her own freedoms — such as more allowance.
Fans can cheer 'Huzzah! Huzzah!' for Judy as she connects history with her own story.
—San Francisco Chronicle
Judy's petitioning for parental concessions will spark recognition in many readers, and in both McDonald's charismatic narrative and Reynolds' line drawings, the characterization of a dauntless, endearingly notional third-grader is as spot-on as ever.
INDEPENDENCE is good for curricular ties to social studies units, and McDonald does a great job of transforming the concepts into familiar concerns. Read aloud or alone, this delightful book will inspire children to write their own declarations of independence.
—School Library Journal
Illustrator Peter H. Reynolds portrays Judy’s spunk, and McDonald tells a story that not only offers a fun, fictional heroine, but also admirably introduces a real female heroine from the time of the American Revolution.

history and independence, for example who ever thought that there was a girls in history I know about pirates. (but this doesn't help you with that) I did not know much about history until I read this book . Now I know a lot ,like sybil was sixteen and she rode forty miles FORTY MILES FOR GOODNESS SAKE. who could ever do that she was only 16 she was very brave. I recommend this to anyone who wants to learn about history in a very FUN FUN FUN way it's the best I recommend it to anyone.
that children about 9 or 10 might like to read about in a book . I recommend this book to third grade and up. Other kids might like it too but third graders might comprehend it better.
