Now in first grade, the hyper-exuberant, baby-talking Junie B. Jones is about to lose her front tooth. Her overblown panic about what that suspicious Tooth Fairy will do with it seems manufactured, and the resolution is pat and artificial. Junie B.'s malapropisms have long been stale, and many of the winks over her head will elude her fans as well. Brunkus's comical drawings suit the energetic text.

Gr 1-4-In this 20th book about Junie B., Parks hits on the universal theme of losing one's first tooth. As the first person in her class to have this experience, Junie B. worries that she'll look funny, but her teacher assures her that it is a momentous event in her life, and that she'll look more grown up when the new one comes in. This, of course, delights the child. However, she is convinced that the tooth fairy is really a witch. After all, what would a tooth fairy do with all of those teeth? This is an ideal read-aloud to first graders and a choice that they will enjoy reading independently as they move into chapter books. Humorous black-and-white drawings show Junie B. as she interacts with her classmates and family.-Jean Lowery, Bishop Woods Elementary School, New Haven, CT Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
