    Review From: Limerick

    The best thing about the book is Judy Moody’s brother Stink. I like Stink because he is obsessed with Abe Lincoln. Abe Lincoln was an old President in America. I liked when Grandma Lou made ghost toasties.

    Review From: Galway

    I thought the book was really good because there was two girls named Kirsty and Rachel. They are best friends from school. Each year they would go to Rainspell Island together and make fairy friends. But this year they go to an activity club. First they did some art and then they played a game of soccer.
    I thought the book was really funny and enjoyable.
