In her typical clueless fashion, Junie B. passionately throws herself into ""assisting"" the cafeteria ladies, although her tactless comments put the other kids off their lunch. The irritating baby talk (""I did a sad sigh"") is toned down, but Junie B.Æs advanced age hasnÆt yet saved her from being the butt of ParkÆs kids-do-the-darndest-things humor. Junie B.Æs many fans may not get the winks over her head. Copyright 2002 Horn Book Guide Reviews

Gr 1-3-Junie B. is excited because she has a brand-new lunch box. She can't resist sneaking peeks in it during class and is caught by her teacher. The child instigates a discussion about why brought lunches are better than bought lunches and sums it all up by saying, "'Cause brought lunches are made special by our very own mothers!" Later that day at lunch, she sees a cafeteria worker who used to bring milk and cookies to Junie B.'s kindergarten class, and asks why her class doesn't get them this year. The woman explains that first graders get cookies when they buy their lunch. Junie B. convinces Mrs. Gutzman to let her be a helper in the cafeteria where she thinks that she'll be the boss and get to eat as many cookies as she wants. This cleverly written beginning chapter book is as funny as ever and young readers will laugh with the child as she learns that working in a cafeteria isn't just about eating cookies. A few black-and-white drawings in each chapter capture the confident little girl and her many adventures.-Kristin de Lacoste, South Regional Public Library, Pembroke Pines, FL Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
