Horn Book Review

Hyper-exuberant first-grader Junie B. Jones is on vacation, terrorizing her parents, her fellow airline passengers, snorkelers, and nature hikers on her boisterous trip to Hawaii. Humorous black-and-white pictures ratchet up the hilarity. Although Junie B.'s shtick is a bit babyish for first grade, readers will enjoy discerning between the exaggerations and the reality of her slanted first-person narration. (c) Copyright 2010.
