Synopsis:

Discovering Grandma Lou’s mysterious “bucket list” of things that she wants to do in her lifetime, Judy Moody is inspired to create a list of her own goals, from learning to do a cartwheel to visiting Antarctica.

Comments:

I was drawn in by the words Bucket List in the title.  I wondered how my  list might compare to Judy Moody’s.

As it turns out, we have different lifetime goals.  At one time, I also hoped to learn to do a cartwheel, but I realized that was never going to happen.  And Antarctica?  brrrrrr.  I would much rather visit France, Ireland, Scotland and/or Canada.  (These trips would be funded by the lottery that I need to win very very soon.)

This was a cute book.  It was realistic fiction that was actually realistic, except for Judy’s immediate mastery of the hepcat dictionary.  I loved Grandma Lou.  It also made me smile that the ride on the horse/donkey hybrid was so much better than the ride on the actual horse.
