Editorial Reviews

bn.com
Junie B. has the frights over Halloween in Barbara Park's 24th episode about the famous first grader. This time, thanks to Paulie Allen Puffer's "5 scary secrets" about Halloween, Junie is ultra-nervous that the holiday is filled with actual monsters and witches that go trick-or-treating incognito, foot-eating pumpkins, clawing black witch cats, and other ghastly horrors. Poor Junie is on the verge of bowing out of Halloween entirely when she conjures up a foolproof plan: Be scarier than the monsters by dressing as Squirty the Clown, who previously frightened the dickens out of Grandma Miller with an overactive seltzer bottle. Will Junie be able to conquer her fears? Readers will laugh themselves silly finding out, and parents will be thankful that Junie is setting a great example about being brave and not scaring others. A deliciously hilarious treat for your collection.

VERY GOOD BOOK!

I may buy the Junie B. Books for my daughter, but I have to admit - I enjoy them just as much as she does. They are even more fun to read outloud, and we can't go three or four pages without having to put the book down and laugh at something Junie says or does. Only bad news. 'Cause eventually the book comes to an end and you have to put it down for real. But fortunately, Barbara Park keeps writing them and as long as she does we will keep reading them.
