Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
This hilarious "top-secret personal" journal reveals the innermost thoughts of that irrepressible moppet, Junie B. Jones -- and provides a place for her enthusiastic fans to write about their own "personal beeswax."

Divided into lots of kid-friendly themes, the journal juxtaposes Junie B.’s entries with blank pages that junior journalers can fill out for themselves. So, as Junie reveals her nickname, hair color, and birthday in the section called "All About Me," readers are invited to do the same. Another section called "Feeling My Feelings!" provides space for readers to write about their emotional experiences -- from their most embarrassing or scary moments to things that make them sad or happy. In between, plenty of other topics are addressed, including school days, family life, favorite foods, and best knock-knock jokes. There are even spots for drawing or pasting pictures, plus two pages of fun stickers for decoration.

Loaded with ideas to help spark creative thinking, this colorful journal is almost as much fun as Junie B. herself. Matt Warner

Publishers Weekly
Junie B. Jones fans can follow the feisty heroine's example with the vinyl-covered Top-Secret Personal Beeswax: A Journal by Junie B. (and Me!) by Barbara Park, illus. by Denise Brunkus. On the left, Junie B. fills out a page "All About Me," while on the right, the exact same lines (blank) allow readers to describe themselves. Junie B. also demonstrates how to draw a self-portrait, record fun facts about friends and create stories by filling in judiciously placed blanks. Brunkus's pleasingly familiar drawings will inspire confidence in novice journal-keepers. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Beloved by millions, the Junie B. Jones books have been translated into multiple languages and are a time-honored staple in elementary school classrooms around the world. Barbara once said, “I’ve never been sure whether Junie B.’s fans love her in spite of her imperfections…or because of them.

    Calling All Junie B. Lovers!

    This is a great book. It's more like an activity book, though. It has Junie B.'s entries, and then you can do your own.

    A good and funny book

    Top Secret Personal Beeswax is a good book because it is funny. My son Jordan (8) loved completing the journal and he loved reconnecting with the characters from the stories.

    THis Book Rocks!

    THis book is awsome! I had soooo much fun filling it out! I give it five stars, and if I could add more stars i'd give this book about an eight. I like when Junie B. Says her birthday is 'Junie The first'. I told all of my friends about this book. I LOOVVVEEEE Junie B.s' books, and a journal is the perfect addition to the tummy hurting antics of all the other books!

    Reader fanatic!!

    Its kind of sad but i'm 14 and i've been reading these books for about 5 years!! Some kids I know also read these books and they ask me alot of questions about it! I'm really happy they do because I'm able to share my experiences about it! I tihnk its a great book for 9 year olds because they can think about what it was like for them when they were in kindergarden and first grade. They can respond to it aswell, like if it was like that for them when they were a kindergardener!!

    Great 'Pre-tween' Book

    My oldest daughter is 10 years old and loves the Junie B. Jones books. She just started reading them this school year and gets excited when she finishes every one. This book was a must-have for Christmas this year. She has spent a lot of 'personal' time with it. It's nice how it has Junie's thoughts in it as it gives her ideas to go on so she can enter her thoughts too (not to mention Junie's entries are quite funny). Definately a good buy for any Junie B. Jones lover.

I got one for my friend! you can fill in things about your family and friends and you could even write what you would wish if you met a REAlly generous genie. ( who would grant 4 wishes(instead of the regular 3!) 2 thumbs up!( if I had more thumbs I would put more up)

    Why I Love Top-Secret Personal Beeswax

    Barabra Park is a great author. she makes great books. I've read ALMOST ALL her books exept toothless wonder, cheater pants and meany jim's birthday. i love her books. But out of all her books i love top-secret personal beeswax because in top secret personal beeswax you can fill in the blanks and decorate it with stickers. But best of all i like what junie B. says like the one where she can wish a wish and she wishes she can go underwater and be able to breath and find popcorn shrimp!!!!!!

    Big hit!

    My gosh, if you love a little girl who is old enough to read and write...buy this darling journal for her! We gave this to my niece on her 8th birthday. Her sister immediately requested it for HER upcoming 10th birthday. Junie's musings and answers to questions (What is your favorite color? Who are your best friends at school?) are written. Then there is space for the owner of the journal to write her own thoughts. You paste a picture of the journal owner on the cover, and add her name, so it is personalized. Big, big hit!
