Ship Ahoy!

Room One is putting on a play. And guess what? It's about explorers looking for the New World! And there's ships and sea captains and everything! Plus here's the bestest news of all - Junie B. Jones thinks she might be the star of the whole entire production! Only, sailing the ocean blue is not as easy as it looks, apparently. 'Cause problems keep on happening.

Can this play be saved? Will the ships ever get to land? Or is Room One in for a disaster at sea that they will never forget?

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Barbara Park's Junie B. Jones brings down the show in this laugh-out-loud 23rd installment of the popular series. Again accompanied by Denise Brunkus's jovial black-and-white artwork, Park has the frolicsome first-grader gearing up for a class play about Christopher Columbus. After coming up with the most research facts about the legendary explorer, Junie and José are allowed to choose which role they'd like for the show. While José takes the part of Columbus, Junie opts to portray the Pinta because it was Columbus's fastest ship. To her chagrin, however, classmate May chooses to be the Santa María -- Columbus's flagship -- and begins touting her own importance. Of course, sure-minded Junie doesn't like being shown up, and when the big night rolls around, the two turn the class play into a silly shipwreck! Park again keeps kids giggling over Junie's witty comments and knee-slapping situations, adding simple lessons about the explorer and also about the way germs are spread. Sure to again sail to the top of the bestseller charts, this Junie B., First Grader book won't be passed up by Park's loyal fans. Matt Warner
Publishers Weekly
Next installments detail the ongoing exploits of familiar characters. In Junie B., First Grader: Shipwrecked by Barbara Park, illus. by Denise Brunkus, the kids of Room One prepare a Columbus Day play. But with a virus spreading through the class and a feud between Junie and May (playing the Pinta and the Santa Maria of Columbus's fleet, respectively), will the play stay afloat? Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Wowie, wow, wow! Those who love Junie B. will not be disappointed in this hilarious sojourn into the world of the school play. Junie B.'s first grade class watches fearfully as Roger throws up all over the floor. Afraid of Roger's germs, Junie B. and her classmates cover their heads with paper bags, hold their noses and wrap their hands in plastic baggies to avoid catching the stomach virus because they are doing a play for Parents' Night. Even though a few students fall prey to the virus and are absent, the class manages to learn about Christopher Columbus and to make costumes for the play. But on the night of the big performance, disaster strikes not once, when Junie B. as the Pinta, and May as the Santa Maria race each other and crash, but twice, when Roger, recovering from a cold, falls on Sheldon and sneezes right up his nose! Jose, as Christopher Columbus, saves the day by swimming to the new world. 2004, A Stepping Stone Book/Random House, Ages 7 to 12.
—Moira Rose Donohue
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-In another zany appearance, feisty Junie B. wins a starring role as the Pinta, the "fastest" of Columbus's ships, in a play to be presented on Parents' Night. Amid typical kid-type disasters (a flu virus, arguments over staging, a frazzled teacher), the students in Room One have a dramatic-and surprising-opening night. Like the other beginning chapter books in this series, Junie B. tells her story in simple, realistic language, including grammatical and spelling errors. Illustrations add humorous details. The interactions of the characters are consistently interesting, and the plot moves quickly. Readers will relate instantly to the trials and tribulations of this first grader, and her approach to conflict resolution and her unrefined social skills make good springboards for classroom discussion. This protagonist often offers examples of how not to handle a situation, but she is always endearing and wonderfully funny.-Corrina Austin, Locke's Public School, St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Hooray for Junie B.!!

    My grandson and I are HUGE fans of Junie B.! I read them aloud to him, but he also is enthralled enough to read them by himself (he's a first-grader). They make both of us laugh out loud. We can't wait to read this one . . .
