The Barnes & Noble Review
We all love Miss Junie B. Jones, the wonderfully outrageous and infinitely amusing six-year-old created by author Barbara Park.

In Junie B. Jones Is a Graduation Girl, our little moppet is set to graduate from kindergarten into the mysterious first grade, where she wonders if she'll see her friends, her school, or her principal again. Then she receives her starched white graduation gown -- a garment simply made for twirling about and dancing -- and all such worries go out of her head. In spite of her teacher's warning not to touch the caps and gowns until graduation day, Junie can't resist trying them on for everyone: Mom, Grandpa, even her stuffed animal friends. Before she knows it, there's purple grape juice on her gown. (As Junie puts it, "Grape juice can go wrong.") Devastated, she hides the evidence until the big day, when she dresses at school. When her purple stains are discovered, she bursts into tears -- but in a commendable act of kindness and friendship, her classmates dot their gowns with colored markers so Junie will not stand out.

Barbara Park has created a one-of-a-kind character with Junie B. Jones. With each book in this delightful series, we are invited to enter the mind of a hilarious, quick-witted, and buoyant work of wonder. (Amy Barkat)

I loved this the book. My favorite part was when Junie B. Jones spills some grape jucie dripplets on her graduation gown. And when she goes to school like that she has pretty much every one in room nine put purple polka dots on their graduation gown.

My children and I love to read any of the Junie B. Jones books. Graduation Girl was definetly another great addition to the series. Parts of the story (ei. the making of graduation invations) were roll off the bed with laughter funny. Our bedtime isn't complete without Junie B. Jones. The Junie B. Jones Series are books that adults can enjoy as much as thier children.

this adorbale series adds the first book, where the whole class comes together to show that in the end they are a team and that they care about each other. Can't wait to read with my daughter Junie's 1st grade adventures.

Junie spills grape juice on her cap and gown! But to be nice Meanie Jim , Lucille, and Speedy Grace tell the class to put dots on their caps and gowns to look just like Junie B's juice dribblets. Another great story by Barbra Parks (;
