The lucky penny in Judy Moody’s pocket sure does seem to be working. She can’t stop winning — at bowling, spelling, the unbeatable Prize Claw, everything! For sure and absolute positive, she’ll ride that wave of good fortune all the way to Washington, D.C. Watch out, District of Cool, here comes Judy Moody, the luckiest kid ever, until . . . oh, no! Her lucky penny just did a belly flop into a porcelain bowl of yucky, blucky UNluck. Has the coin’s magic gone kerflooey?Are some people, like Jessica Finch or Stink, destined to have all the luck, while she, Judy Moody, gets stuck with a yard full of three-not-four leaf clovers, a squealing potbellied pig in an elevator, and a squashed penny with cooties? ROAR!

In her eleventh misadventure, Judy Moody finds a lucky penny, only to lose it, recover it, and lose it again. Her good fortune comes and goes, too: she travels to Washington DC for her school's spelling bee, but misplaces a potbellied pig she's supposed to be tending. As always, newly independent readers will easily relate to Judy's charming flaws.
