Did you know that Judy Moody's birthday is April 1st. April Fools Day! No joke!

AND 2010 marks the 10th anniversary of the Judy Moody books. Check out the uber-rare, brand-spanking new covers by Peter Reynolds here:

Here's what happened to me, Megan McDonald, on Judy Moody's birthday:

(Take a guess! ONE of these is TRUE. No lie.)

a) Found a fake hand in my toilet. Aaagh!

b) Checked my mood ring and it had tiger stripes. Yipes stripes!

c) Declared independence from April Fools Day (but nobody listened.) Drat.

d) Got a Screamin' Mimi's mud pie in the face. Yikes!

e) Woke up with Band-Aids all over me. Youch!

And the answer is... D! (sort of) Okay, so it wasn't REALLY in my face, but it WAS delivered to my door. Yum, yum.

If you love April Fools as much as we do in my family, check out a crazy April Fools joke that Judy plays on Stink!

It's in the brand new Candlewick Press collection called : I FOOLED YOU: Ten Stories of Tricks, Jokes, and Switcheroos!

I Fooled You Ten Stories of Tricks, Jokes, and Switcheroos

My story is based on a real joke my dad played on my sisters and me when we were young.

Read, read, READ!
