One of the best books I have ever read!!

I just love the Junie B. Jones series. In fact, I have every single book. I have read them all about 20 times. Even being a 4th grader, I will still laugh out loud at Junie B. Back to Junie B. Tootless wonder. I gave it five stars because I like how Junie B. has "issues" with tooth fairy. There are also a few othe parts that stick out to me. What really made me laugh was that Junie B. thought that if she went into to the classroom with her tooth missing, that poeple would throw fruit at her. Junie B. makes me rember what I was like when I lost my 1st upper tooth.I also really like how Park liked tied together the beggening and end.She did this by at the beggening having a speaker come in and teach them about recycling.Then at the end when Junie B. finds money under her pillow, her baby brother Ollie gets a bit of his first tooth. Junie B. thinks that the tooth fairy recycles her tooth and gives it to her baby brother. To sum it up, I think that this is a great book for any age.

My 5 year old and I have been enjoying reading novels together and she loved Ramona the Pest by Beverly Cleary and so I was looking for something that might be similar. However, with this book...I couldn't get past the first 3 pages without having to omit the name calling and attitude so much that there was nothing left to read. I paused after a few pages, looked at my daughter and said "this doesn't seem like a very nice book does it? Should we start something else?" and she agreed.
Great fun for kids and adults

As a grandmother of a 6-year old who just lost her first front tooth, I found this story to be as much fun to read as my granddaughter. We took turns reading it and she wanted to read it all over again right away. She is now reading it to Daddy and herself. Many parts left me laughing out loud (maybe not the ones she found funny). This book is really well written and tons of fun. Definitely "Show and Tell" material!
A terrible thing happened to Junie B. Jones! And it's called -- someone took her new black furry mittens! And they kept them! They didn't even put them in the Lost and Found at school. So when Junie ...
