Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hilarious This one was funny, especially as you see how Junie B is trying to make success out of her misery

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Junie B., First Grader: One-Man Band (Junie B. Jones #22) Junie B. was very excited to get the star in the first grade kick ball tournament at her school. She was so excited that she decided that she would practice at home, but something went wrong. Junie B. kicked her ball over the fence and didn't have anything else to kick so she decided that she would kick her mom's watering can. This didn't work and she ended up hurting her toe. Mr. Scary, her teacher, found out and told Junie B. that it probably was best that she should stay out of the tournament, but be apart of the half-time show with Sheldon who hurt his head. Junie B. decided that she would juggle for the half time show and was trying to learn. Sheldon was so afraid so he ran off, so Junie B. decided that she would perform by herself and she was the star of the half-time show! The illustrations in this book were just enough so get the picture on how Junie B. felt along the way of the story.
