Children's LiteratureFor those of you who are still stubbornly resisting reading children's books, you must at least give this one to every humbug on your Christmas list, or to the people who kind of make you think about fruitcake. This title by the incomparable Barbara Park is the perfect present for your doctor or the paperboy, or any seven-year-old you know or can borrow. In this laugh-out-loud book, Junie B. and her arch-enemy, May, are battling (as usual) and then along comes the Secret Santa thing in the classroom. Junie B. has her shopping list completed, including tattoos and a fart/burper hand-held device. May, of course, tells Junie B. she is enormously shellfish, and the story (I absolutely cannot give it away) ends up so great, you will cry. So go buy about ten copies of this for Emergency Gifting. It is far better than fruitcake. Junie B. is the "bestest." It even has a ribbon bookmark sewn into the binding. 2005, Random House, Ages 7 to 10.
