      • content: owenh10 - March 17, 2014 Get On the Bus By: Owen If you like funny little kids you should read Junie B Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus. By: Barbra Park. This is the first book in a series of 24 books. The first thing Junie B. does is that she meets Mrs. Her teacher. When she asks her if she is riding the bus she screams. Where is the stupid smelly bus going to?! Her mom says watch it missy. The next morning she wakes up and she gets ready for school. She gets on the bus. Once she gets to school she gets a tour around the school. At the end of the day they line up to go home except Junie B. Can you guess what happens to her next? I loved this book because all the humor she has. It’s also funny because she does things she is not supposed to do but she does it in a funny way. I love this book and I mean it! Ha Junie B always says that.

        One of the initial titles released under the First Stepping Stone imprint, chapter books aimed at newly independent readers and arranged in series, Park's ( Skinnybones ) jolly caper is the first installment to feature Junie B., a feisty almost-six-year-old who is not at all happy about riding the bus on the first day of kindergarten. In fact, she doesn't like a single thing about this vehicle: not the kids who get on it (``Loud kids. And some of them were the kind who look like meanies''); not the door (``If it closes on you by accident, it will cut you in half, and you will make a squishy sound''); and not the black smoke it emits (``It's called bus breath, I think''). Other equally candid, on-target perceptions fill Junie B.'s first-person narrative, which is peppered with reader-involving questions (``Only guess what?''; `` 'Cause guess why?'') that help to propel the story at a whiz-bang pace. When a classmate tells Junie B. that kids will pour chocolate milk on her head on the way home, the spunky child finds a way to avoid the dreaded bus. Park convinces beginning readers that Junie B.-- and reading--are lots of fun. Ages 6-9.

        K-Gr 3 -Park is truly a funny writer. Although Junie B. is a kindergartner, she's sure to make middle graders laugh out loud when they read about her adventures on the first day of school. Even the most insecure readers will feel superior because they know so much more than she does. Brunkus's occasional black-and-white pencil illustrations are appealing and reinforce the mood of the text. Junie B. is a real character; she talks a lot, is funny without knowing it, and honest to a fault. This book will get lots of peer recommendations, and younger kids will enjoy listening to it when read aloud. It's a real hoot! -Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Pub . Lib ., ID

        Gr. 2-3. Park, one of the funniest writers around, usually reserves her talent for middle-graders. Now she brings her refreshing humor to the beginning chapter-book set. The perennial question, Will kids read about those younger than themselves? is enthusiastically answered in the affirmative in this case. It's hard for anyone to resist Junie B. A cross between Lily Tomlin's Edith Ann and Eloise, Junie B. (she insists on the B.) is on her way to kindergarten, but that doesn't mean she has to go gently into that abyss. In riotous first-person she describes how she learns the concept of school busing ("WHERE'S THE STUPID SMELLY BUS GOING TO?"), meets her new teacher and the principal ("The principal is a baldy"), and makes new friends ("That Jim, I hate"). To avoid riding the bus home on her first day, Junie B. hides out under the teacher's desk and has a very enjoyable time sticking gold stars on her forehead and writing with "Brand-new chalk that's not even out of its little box yet!" Fortunately for readers, Junie B. is found, paving the way for another book in the series. Pencil illustrations by Denise Brunkus add to the fun.
