ISBN 0679866973 - This book is riddled with bad grammar, and that's just fine. The narrator is a very young girl and, had the book been full of big words and perfect grammar, the complaint would be that it's ridiculous to think a little girl would write that way - so be prepared to overlook that. It's worth the minor effort. She's in kindergarten, she "talks" like a 5 year old. Lighten up!

Junie B. Jones is a hilarious, hyper bundle of energy and school picture day is no exception. She lectures the cameraman, babbles incessantly and gets the "driver's license" picture everyone dreads. That's overshadowed by the fact that she's come to be informed of the horror that lurks under everyone's bed - a drooling, toe eating, head chomping, invisible-when-you-look-at-it, monster. Getting rid of it is only half the fun.

Junie's childish disregard for her little brother, Ollie, when she kicks him out and takes over his crib is hilariously accurate. Her chatty, exuberant approach to everything is right on target. Don't let the grammar keep you away from this book - read it and laugh out loud. If you're one of those parents who struggles with the grammar issue, use it to your advantage to teach your own child better. Believe me, when your child goes roaring off in their first car, Junie's bad grammar is going to make you smile and you'll realize that reading it didn't cripple your kids' intellectual development. She might even be the reason they started enjoying books in the first place!

Junie gets a lot right, but one thing sticks out in my mind - "School pictures is a racket, I think."
