It hasn't snowed on Christmas in Virginia in more than a hundred years, however, so what are the chances that that will change? Enter the new mailman, Mr. Jack Frost, who not only looks like a jolly old elf but also seems to know a lot about weather patterns, has a fondness for the cold, and works looooooong hours during the holiday season. Plus it's the best time of the year, when strange packages and lots of surprises are swirling around, so isn't it possible that Stink might get his wish? Fans who curl up with this new Moody comedy can be sure that their bellies will shake like a bowl full of jelly.

Booklist Review

Judy Moody's Christmas list is so long she has to write it on toilet paper, but her young brother, Stink, has only one wish snow. It hardly ever snows in Virginia, but maybe it will snow just for him. The latest in this popular series blends humor and story as tension builds on Christmas Eve, and puns and colorful illustrations show the siblings' banter and their bond. The longing for the snowy holiday will touch kids wherever they live.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2007 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

Judy Moody and Stink: The Holly Joliday by Megan McDonald, illus. by Peter H. Reynolds, marks two firsts: never before have the siblings shared the marquee, and never before has the bestselling series been illustrated in full color. This episode finds the pair hoping for a white Christmas (even though it hasn't snowed in Virginia "for like a million years," according to Judy), performing holiday skits at school and getting a new mailman named Jack Frost.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-5-Fans of the Moodys will enjoy this holiday offering with its sparkly cover and full-color illustrations. All Stink wants for Christmas is snow, and that's not too likely in Virginia. But things begin to look up when a new mailman named Jack Frost (looking amazingly like Santa) shows up at the door and encourages Stink to ``Think snow." Predictably the plot revolves around Christmas lists, holiday plays, and lots of wishing, with a big show of heart from Judy Moody at the end. Most enjoyable is the fast-paced dialogue and witty sister-and-brother banter that readers have come to expect. A surefire hit for the "jolidays."-Teri Markson, Los Angeles Public Library (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
