Megan McDonald, author of the popular Judy Moody books, says that sometimes she thinks she is Judy Moody. Thus the title of my post today. This post is dedicated especially for all you kids who are big fans of Judy Moody, Stink, and the first Judy Moody movie, Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer.

Last week I got an email from Megan inviting me to invite our old writers' group crowd to a weekend of Judy Moody festivities here in Sonoma County. You see, we all heard the very first Judy Moody drafts when Megan was part of our writers' group. So, the "old" writers' group met at Screamin' Mimi's Ice Cream Shop in Sebastopol for a little reunion, a little ice cream, a little book signing, and of course, to congratulate Megan on the opening of Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer. We sampled two special Judy Moody ice cream flavors - Moody's Mud and Thrillalectric. We even got to meet the delightful Jordana Beatty who portrays Judy Moody in the movie.
