​Junie B. Jones is having a rough day—no, scratch that, a rough week! First off, she is about to lose her first tooth, and what does the Tooth Fairy do with all those teeth anyway? Even worse, everyone in her class has been invited to her classmate Jim's birthday ... except for her. Will Junie land that surprisingly elusive invitation? And if her tooth comes out, what will she even look like? Visit Junie's charming and witty world as we learn together what it means to grow up and fit in.


Recommended for grades K-5.
