Junie B Jones is scared of Halloween. ( )

This book is full of antics you would see out of your typical first grader. It allows the reader to get inside this little girl's mind and see the comical thoughts going through her head. Young children are sure to love this book, because Junie is so funny

Such a fun book for me as well as young children top read. I think that young children would get a laugh out of all the Junie B. Jones books. Junie B. Jones is afraid of Halloween because of what another chid told her. So, she decided to be a clown that had scared her and her grandmother. When she was out trick-o-treating she couldn't scare anyone but that night when he dad came back from a business trip she fell asleep with her makeup on and she scared "the pants off" her dad. ( )

Book description
Only here's the trouble Junie B. Jones is afraid to go trick-or treating. Cause what if witches and monsters are really real? And what if pumpkins with sharp teeth can eat your feet? And don't even get her started on the candy corn problem. So how is Junie B. supposed to enjoy this scary holiday? As ever, her way of expressing herself "I did a groan" and "Chills came on my arms" is grammatically unique, but as you get to know her, more endearing than alarming. Children who have mixed feelings about Halloween festivities will relate to Junie B.'s fears, and they'll be relieved when Halloween passes without a monster attack or pumpkin bite, just a delicious bag of 100% candy.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0375828079, Paperback)

In the 24th installment of Barbara Park's Junie B. Jones series of illustrated early chapter books, Boo... And I Mean It!, the precocious first grader is worried about Halloween--with good reason. Paulie Allen Puffer has given her five good reasons, in fact, not least of which is that real witches and monsters go trick-or-treating on Halloween (no costumes necessary); if you carve pumpkins with pointy teeth, they will bite your feet; and...shhh...candy corn isn't really corn. Junie B. goes to great lengths to avoid trick-or-treating altogether, but she finally decides that if she dresses up like Squirty the Clown (a disturbing circus clown who terrified her grandmother by chasing her with a seltzer bottle and making her wear an "unattractive balloon hat"), even the most horrific witches and monsters will be scared off. As ever, her way of expressing herself "I did a groan" and "Chills came on my arms" is grammatically unique, but as you get to know her, more endearing than alarming. Children who have mixed feelings about Halloween festivities will relate to Junie B.'s fears, and they'll be relieved when Halloween passes without a monster attack or pumpkin bite, just a delicious bag of 100% candy. (Ages 4 to 8) --Karin Snelson
