Judy Moody Declares Independence
author: Megan McDonald
illustrator: Peter H. Reynolds
A visit to Boston has put our famous third-grader in a revolutionary mood. But staging a revolt in the form of a tea-throwing Boston Tub Party has her dad reading the riot act. Will a real-life crisis involving her brother, Stink, finally give Judy a chance to show her courageous quick thinking — and prove her independence once and for all?
When a visit to Boston spurs Judy's interest in Revolutionary heroes and heroines, she's soon on a quest for more independence.
