Junie B Jones Is Not a Crook - Junie B. Jones, Bk 9 Author:Barbara Park, Denise Brunkus (Illustrator) A terrible thing happened to Junie B. Jones! And it's called -- someone took her new black furry mittens! And they kept them! They didn't even put them in the Lost and Found at school.

I usually read the Junie B books to my son, but my husband read this one, it was his first Junie B book he's read. No book will ever be as funny as "Monkey Business" but my son enjoyed this one as well. I got this book since our library was missing this one sequentually.
Although this series of books is VERY popular, I am not a big fan of the Junie B Jones books. They are written in conversational English and not proper English so, in my opinion, not the best books for kids who are learning to read and write. The charachter Junie is interesting but the sentence structures used in the book are horrid, incorrect and downright got on my last nerve!
