Annotation: "A Junie B. Jones Book, #18
Hurray, hurray for a brand-new school year!
Only, for Junie B. Jones, things are not actually that pleasant. 'Cause first grade means having to get used to a whole new classroom. And a whole new teacher. And a whole new bunch of strange children. But here's the worst thing of all: when Junie B. tries to read words on the chalkboard, she can't seem to see what everyone else is seeing! Is it
possible she might actually end up wearing glasses?

Hyper-exuberant first-grader Junie B. Jones is on vacation, terrorizing her parents, her fellow airline passengers, snorkelers, and nature hikers on her boisterous trip to Hawaii. Humorous black-and-white pictures ratchet up the hilarity. Although Junie B.'s shtick is a bit babyish for first grade, readers will enjoy discerning between the exaggerations and the reality of her slanted first-person narration.

Boisterous first-grader Junie B. Jones and her over-the-top classmates exasperate their teacher making a Thankful List for a school-wide contest, but they achieve mutual appreciation during the class Thanksgiving feast. The hyper-enthusiastic narration stays on one note, but young readers will enjoy Junie B.'s growing awareness of her world. Brunkus's caricatured illustrations waver between cute and obnoxious.

In [cf2]Graduation,[cf1] Junie B. drips grape juice on her cap and gown and tries to hide the stains; in [cf2]First Grader[cf1] she deals with a new class and new purple glasses. Although Junie B. is getting a little long in the tooth for her trademark cutesy baby talk and overweening boisterousness, her new challenges will resonate with her many fans. Humorous black-and-white drawings illustrate both books. [Review covers [cf2]Junie B., First Grader (at Last!)[cf1] and [cf2]Junie B.

K-Gr 2 Readers will happily board the plane with precocious Junie B. as she sets off for Hawaii with her parents. Her school assignment is to complete a photo journal documenting her vacation, but from the start it’s clear that her adventures are really misadventures. Her first photo captures two “grouchpots,” one in the seat in front of Junie B., and the other behind. Clearly, neither passenger is pleased with the girl’s seat kicking, endless chatter, or imaginative games with stuffed elephant Philip Johnny Bob and Barbie doll Delores. In the hotel gift shop, Junie insists on purchasing a parrot swim ring that proves much too small and gets stuck on her body for the entire trip. Later episodes include an unfortunate encounter with eels and jellyfish while snorkeling, and a bird that nests in Junie B.’s hair when she adorns herself with exotic flowers. Clever language and outrageous antics make this irrepressible youngster a standout character. Brunkus’s delightful black-and-white illustrations are a delight.Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT

Gr 1-3-While first grade offers a whole year of exciting possibilities for Junie B., things get off to a confusing start. Feeling tentative about her new teacher, she renames him Mr. Scary. Her last year's best friend now has two new best friends and her old bus pal has a new buddy. Then, Junie's teacher discovers that she needs glasses. Now that is something to worry about. "What if Room One laughs their head off at me? What if I look like a goonie bird and no one wants to be my friend?" However, her classmates, who already agree that twins with rhyming names, a boy with a spiky gel hairdo, and bilingual José are fascinating, determine that Junie B. and her purple glasses are definitely cool. As always, Park is in touch with what the kids know and how they feel. A satisfying read, especially for fans.-Sharon R.
