But either way, she’s gone out into the world and made more friends than I ever dreamed possible.”

Barbara Park is also the author of award-winning middle grade novels and bestselling picture books, including Skinnybones, Mick Harte Was Here, and Ma! There’s Nothing to Do Here!

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2005 Spring)
In [cf2]Boo[cf1], Junie B. dresses as a scary clown for Halloween to combat her fear of real trick-or-treating monsters. In [cf2]Shipwrecked[cf1], she causes a disaster starring in a Columbus Day school play while her class suffers a stomach bug. The slight, mishap-based plots are poorly shaped, and the idea of a first grader using cutesy baby talk ("Finally, Herbert got frustration in him") strains credibility.

Barbara Park's latest, Junie B., First Grader: Boo... and I Mean It!, illus. by Denise Brunkus, finds the indefatigable star a bit apprehensive of trick-or-treating: "I'm going to see real, actual monsters and witches! Plus I'll probably be coming home with a bat in my hair." (Aug.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
