Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meet the World's Funniest Kindergartner—Junie B. Jones!

Remember when it was scary to go to school? With over 50 million books in print, Barbara Park's New York Times bestselling chapter book series, Junie B. Jones, is a classroom favorite and has been keeping kids laughing—and reading—for over 20 years! In the 1st Junie B. Jones book, it's Junie B.'s first day and she doesn't know anything. She's so scared of the school bus and the meanies on it that when it's time to go home, she doesn't.

USA TODAY:

"Junie B. is the darling of the young-reader set."

Publisher's Weekly:

"Park convinces beginning readers that Junie B.—and reading—are lots of fun."

Kirkus Reviews:

"Junie's swarms of young fans will continue to delight in her unique take on the world….A hilarious, first-rate read-aloud."

Time Magazine:

"Junie B. Jones is a feisty six-year-old with an endearing penchant for honesty."

Synopsis:

Illus. in black-and-white . Meet Junie B. who tells in her own words the hilarious story of how she gets locked in school after her first day of kindergarten. "It's hard for anyone to resist Junie B."--Booklist. "It's a real hoot!"--School Library Journal. "A genuinely funny, easily read story."--Kirkus.  

About the Author

Barbara Park is one of  today's funniest and best-loved writers for middle graders.  Her novels, which include Dear God, HELP!!! Love Earl; Skinnybones; The Kid in the Red Jacket; and Mick Harte Was Herehave won numerous children's book awards.

Barbara thinks that the wonderful thing about writing humor is that she is able to deal with serious issues in a more lighthearted way.

Barbara's fans always want to know whether or not her characters are based on her own children (she has two sons) — in fact, they are not.  But having her sons has made it easier for her to know how kids talk and think.

What matters most to Barbara is that her books are bringing a few smiles to her readers.

Barbara lives in Paradise Valley, Arizona, with her husband, Richard. She holds a B.S. from the University of Alabama.
