The Barnes & Noble Review
On with the show! Everyone's favorite first-grader delivers a hilarious halftime performance in Barbara Park's 22nd entry in the Junie B. Jones series.

When she kicks her mom's cow-painted watering can by "accident," Junie gets an unpleasant toe injury, putting her right out of the first-grade kickball tournament. Classmate Sheldon then bumps his head as she's describing her woes to the class, so instead of sitting on the tournament sidelines, the two volunteer to be the tournament's halftime entertainment. Junie hatches a plan to learn juggling, and Sheldon offers to play the cymbals and sing, but when the time comes for them to perform, her pal gets cold feet and takes off. What will Junie do? Garner her confidence and put on a great show, of course!

With more hilarious antics and that zippy voice that fans have come to adore, Junie will surely charm your socks off yet again. She's one heroine who deserves all the cheers she gets. Matt Warner
