Editorial Reviews

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.
