In Judy Moody Goes To Hollywood, fans can check out this behind-the-scenes peak with Judy, Stink, Rocky, Frank Pearl and more when you get the inside facts about film making and being in the movies. Packed with lots of full color movie stills and original photos taken on the set, this hardcover is this summer’s must-have movie companion. ($14.99, ages 8-12)
So You Want to Catch Bigfoot by Morgan Jackson, PhD and illustrated by Mark Fearing is a facsimile of the book Aunt Opal gives to Stink in the film as he searches his neighborhood for the elusive Bigfoot after several sightings crop up.
