Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
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.
Publishers Weekly
Barbara Park's latest, Junie B., First Grader: Boo... and I Mean It!, illus. by Denise Brunkus, finds the indefatigable star a bit apprehensive of trick-or-treating: "I'm going to see real, actual monsters and witches! Plus I'll probably be coming home with a bat in my hair." (Aug.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Junie B. Jones has a Halloween secret. She's scared of trick-or-treating. She's not a scaredy-cat baby though. Paulie Allen Puffer told her five truths about Halloween that he learned from his eighth grade brother that would keep anyone with a brain off the streets on that night. Only, her mother doesn't know these five secrets and Junie B. Jones would face a wart for a head if she told her. Junie B. is forced to get creative and finagle a custome that will keep her safe on the most frightening night of the year. Philip Johnny Bob, her stuffed elephant acts as Junie's confidant and supporter during this holiday. As in the other Junie B. books, this one is another hilarious account of a day in the life of this first grader. A normally fearless girl, Junie B. shows a different side of herself, and uses her bravery and creativity to overcome her fear. This book is a great contribution to Barbara Park's already stellar series of books. 2004, Random House, Ages 4 to 8.
—Erin Teagan

    Junie B. is Great!

    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.
