Junie B. Jones and the Mushy Gushy Valentime - Barbara Park, Denise Brunkus


Found a copy of this book in the Lending Library and decided to check it out for an easy read.

The story is simple, the writing is okay, but I really did not like the narration. Junie's narration really bugged me with her misprounciations and incorrect use of past tense verbs. I understand why it was written that way, but for me it was very irritating.

I also didn't really like the whole Valentine theme. The girls turn it into a competition between them, which I don't think was resolved in a very satisfying way. An important teaching opportunity was clearly missed.

Okay book.
