More About Megan McDonald

Megan McDonald Megan McDonald, beloved author of the Judy Moody books, is also a gifted storyteller. She is the author of When the Library Lights Go Out", illustrated by Katherine Tillotson; The Hinky-Pink", illustrated by Brian Floca; and the now-classic Is This a House for Hermit Crab?", illustrated by S.D. Schindler. She lives in Sebastopol, California.

"Sometimes I think I AM Judy Moody," says Megan McDonald, author of the award-winning JUDY MOODY books. "I'm certainly moody, like she is. Judy has a strong voice and always speaks up for herself. I like that."

Being able to speak up for herself wasn't always easy. The author grew up as the youngest of five sisters in a house full of books in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Her father, an ironworker, built bridges across the city and was known to his coworkers as "Little Johnny the Storyteller." Every evening at dinnertime the McDonald family would gather around the kitchen table, talking and telling stories. But with four older sisters, Megan remembers barely being able to get a word in edgewise. "I'm told I began to stutter," she says. “That’s when my mother gave me a notebook, so that I could write down everything I wanted to say!”

Megan McDonald currently resides in Sebastopol, in the state of California.

A Teenage Girl's Review  Aug 1, 2008
I dislike many elements of these book, particulary the divorce of Julie's parents. I know divorce is common, and was common back in the 1970's, but I still hate it. They attempt to send a message that Julie finds a new way of being a family and it makes her stronger, but I hardly find that to happen in real life! Divorce shatters kids, it can ruin their lives, especially when their parents try to act as if the family can be normal again. Family's are only truly normal when they stick to the old values, the values America was built on.
Another thing I don't like is the sneaky Liberal feel to these books, like the environment. It seemed like the author was putting more emphasis on saving a bird or tree in book 4: "Julie and the Eagles", then looking out for people. I'm a Conservative, so I wouldn't want my child getting brainwashed into this way of thinking. I feel like these books displace many values of America, and I don't want to read that. I like books with the values that America was founded on, ones that are written into our Constitution.
You all may like these books if you wish, but if you're a Christian, you will probably end up disliking them.

It is an excellent soure of information for childern and adults.
The amoount of History and everyday likfe experience is wonderful.
Compassionate and Considerate  May 11, 2008
Author Megan McDonald and illustrator Robert Hunt have created a memorable character in Julie Albright, a considerate, passionate young girl who is ready to make changes and take changes as they come.

Julie is one of the American Girls, books which offer realistic glimpses into America's past through the eyes of young girls. The Julie books begin in 1974, when Julie is nine years old, and end in 1976. There are six Julie books in all.

The first book, Meet Julie, begins shortly after her parents get divorced. Julie moves to another part of San Francisco with her older sister Tracy and her artsy mom, who opens up a shop called Gladrags below their apartment. Although Julie gets to see her father (and her rabbit Nutmeg, and her best friend Ivy) every other weekend at her old house, things just aren't the same.

By the end of the first book, Julie is a little more confident and a little more content. Though still sad about the divorce, she settles nicely into a pattern with her parents, and she enjoys her new home and her school.

Throughout the course of the series, Julie grows more optimistic and thoughtful. In the second book, Julie Tells Her Story, she is assigned a "Story of My Life" project in class and conducts tape-recorded interviews with her family and friends. Happy New Year, Julie shows how she always finds things to celebrate and appreciate, while Julie and the Eagles finds Julie raising awareness and money for injured feathered friends. Julie's Journey follows her on the wagon train that celebrated America's bicentennial. The sixth and final book in the series, Changes for Julie, considers communication and politics when Julie befriends a hearing-impaired classmate and runs for student body president.

Now I'm happily picturing a grown-up Julie working in politics or education, and wishing there were more books in this delightful series. Like the other American Girls books, each of the Julie books includes vignettes explaining and depicting real-life events that happened in that girl's time period. The vignettes in the Julie books were written and compiled by historians and writers such as Susan McAliley and Nika Korniyenko. With Julie's books taking place in our recent past, parents can easily bring up their own childhoods while discussing these books with their kids.

My daughter loves all the American Girl series she's read... this one is different because it is more modern. Like all the others I think this is very educational. I imagine most little girls would enjoy this set!
American Girl Julie  Jan 7, 2008
I bought the new American Girl series "Julie" for my daughter, who has all the other American Girl books. Molly is still her favorite, but Julie moved past Kit into second place. We both read the Julie books and loved them. The books take place in the mid 1970's and deal with issues such as divorce, friendship, Title IX, and the Bicentennial. If you buy these books, be prepared to explain to your daughter the meaning of the words "groovy" and "far out".
