Annotation: Ship Ahoy!
Room One is putting on a play. And guess what? It's about explorers looking for the New World! And there's ships and sea captains and everything! Plus here's the bestest news of all--Junie B. Jones thinks she might be the star of the whole entire production! Only, sailing the ocean blue is not as easy as it looks, apparently. 'Cause problems keep on happening. Like the actors keep catching the flu. And bossy May keeps trying to take over the show.
Can this play be saved? Will the ships "ever get to land? Or is Room One in for a disaster at sea that they will never forget?

In [cf2]Boo[cf1], Junie B. dresses as a scary clown for Halloween to combat her fear of real trick-or-treating monsters. In [cf2]Shipwrecked[cf1], she causes a disaster starring in a Columbus Day school play while her class suffers a stomach bug. The slight, mishap-based plots are poorly shaped, and the idea of a first grader using cutesy baby talk ("Finally, Herbert got frustration in him") strains credibility. [Review covers these Stepping Stone titles: [cf2]Junie B., First Grader: Boo...and I Mean It![cf1] and [cf2]Junie B., First Grader: Shipwrecked[cf1].] Copyright 2005 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

Next installments detail the ongoing exploits of familiar characters. In Junie B., First Grader: Shipwrecked by Barbara Park, illus. by Denise Brunkus, the kids of Room One prepare a Columbus Day play. But with a virus spreading through the class and a feud between Junie and May (playing the Pinta and the Santa Maria of Columbus's fleet, respectively), will the play stay afloat?

Gr 1-3-In another zany appearance, feisty Junie B. wins a starring role as the Pinta, the "fastest" of Columbus's ships, in a play to be presented on Parents' Night. Amid typical kid-type disasters (a flu virus, arguments over staging, a frazzled teacher), the students in Room One have a dramatic-and surprising-opening night. Like the other beginning chapter books in this series, Junie B. tells her story in simple, realistic language, including grammatical and spelling errors. Illustrations add humorous details. The interactions of the characters are consistently interesting, and the plot moves quickly. Readers will relate instantly to the trials and tribulations of this first grader, and her approach to conflict resolution and her unrefined social skills make good springboards for classroom discussion. This protagonist often offers examples of how not to handle a situation, but she is always endearing and wonderfully funny.-Corrina Austin, Locke's Public School, St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
