Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

"I'm the bestest winner in the world!" 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 5th Junie B. Jones book, it's Carnival Night, and Lucille has already won a box of fluffy cupcakes with sprinkles on them. But when Junie B. wins the Cake Walk, she chooses the bestest cake of all—the one wrapped in sparkly aluminum foil. How was she to know it was a lethal weapon?

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:

Junie, a spunky, sometimes exasperating, kindergartener, looks forward to winning lots of prizes at the school carnival, but a fruit cake was not exactly what she had in mind.

Synopsis:

Junie B. is having a run of bad luck, losing every game at the school carnival.  When she finally wins the Cake Walk on her last ticket, she chooses a fruitcake as her prize.  But who in the heck knew that sparkly foil-wrapped fruitcake was really a lethal weapon in disguise?  "The innocent first-person narrative will make lower-school readers laugh out loud at her mispronunciations as they recognize their own confusion and failure."--Booklist

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.
