Editorial Reviews

For Junie B., this year's Easter Egg Hunt at Lucille house holds extra allure. She's learned that winner of the egg fest wins a play date in Lucille's cool beyond cool heated indoor swimming pool. Before the race has even begun, though, Junie's ambitions trip over her own big rabbit feet: She's obliged to attend the event wearing an outlandish -- and incredibly awkward -- dumb bunny outfit. Sometimes the entire universe seems pitted against the world's unluckiest six-year-old! An endearing story about a truly sympathetic little girl.
Children's Literature - Gwynne Spencer
What goes around comes around is the underlying theme of the 27th book in the series of adventures of the kids in Room One, Mr. Scary's class. Junie B. calls May a "dumb bunny" and is reprimanded severely. Not long after, Lucille (a.k.a. the rich kid) invites the whole class to her mansion for an Easter egg hunt. The winner will get a chance to play with Lucille all day and bask in her new indoor pool, but when the day of the hunt comes, the Easter Bunny doesn't show up and so Plan B goes into effect: the kid who picks a purple jellybean gets the "thrill of a lifetime" which turns out to be the chance to be the alternate Easter Bunny. Guess who wins? Of course, Junie B. doesn't do so well at hunting Easter eggs, hampered as she is by her gigantic bunny feet. Exhibiting a new altruistic streak, Junie B. decides she can at least thwart May's efforts to win the play date by helping Sheldon Potts (who is wearing his lucky shirt with some breakfast still on it, "may the egg be with you") find the coveted golden egg. As a result, May, the tattletale, pegs Junie B. as the dumbest of dumb bunnies. In the end, Junie is glad she helped Sheldon, May represses her tattling, and Lucille is thrilled with how everything turns out for her. Like all the Junie B. books, this one is sprinkled with funny moments for readers of all ages.

My daughter LOVES the Junie B Jones series and this book was no disappointment. We read it together and both laughed. We started it and couldn't put it down, read the entire book. My daughter has many books in this series but this is one of her favorites. Things don't usually go the way Junie would like but it all works out eventually. I like that these books end on a happy,positive note. My daughter's second grade teacher uses the series in her classroom. Since they are amusing, it motivates the students to read. 7 to 9 year olds will love this series.

Junie B. is back again and speaking her mind as she loves to do. In this book Junie B. cannot wait for Lucille's party and Easter egg hunt at her mansion. All Junie B. can think about is how she wants to find the golden egg so she can swim in Lucille's new indoor, heated swimming pool. You will find yourself so caught up in the drama you will not want to put the book down! This would be a wonderful book to read aloud to primary students. It could lead to conversations about how to get along with others and the importance of following the rules.

Junie B. Jones is a first grader trying to discover the world and learn about it. She really doesn't know her way around. The characters in the book are her guides that think she is a bit off on her lines.

Ok, I wont lie. This book was amazing!But it did had a twist in the end. I've spent my most of my time reading Junie B Jones books,and this one is my most favorite of all!At the end there was a twist,and it makes Junie B in guilt,but also happines.I f I were stuck in a hole for 11 mintues, I would choose this book to read.I would recoomend this book to a friend becuse it mind explosife and a good book to read.Hence, I love this book.
