Judy Moody and Friends: Mrs. Moody in the Birthday Jinx

by Megan McDonald Illustrated by Erwin Madrid
Make a wish, Mrs. Moody! Every year on Mom's birthday, one way or another, something goes wrong-not-right. Maybe Judy's been in a bad mood. Maybe Stink's gotten a little carsick. Maybe Dad can't bake Mom's favorite carrot cake. But this year is going to be different. This year is going to be perfect. This year, Judy is going to do all she can to make sure Mom gets the happy birthday she deserves. Parsnip cake with avocado frosting, anyone?
