Dear first-grade journal,
Hooray, hooray! TheatreworksUSA is making a brand-new musical
(that is a play all jumbled together with singing and dancing, I
believe). And what do you know! It's all about me, Junie B. Jones! (The B
stands for Beatrice, only I do not like Beatrice. I just like B and
This is the bestest musical ever, I tell you! It's got
loads of funny songs, and it's based on a bunch of books this lady,
Barbara Park, wrote about me and the things I do in first grade.
Junie B., First Grader (at Last!)-- In first grade, I meet
new friends (like Herb and José, but not that tattle-tale May). But my
new teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks I might need glasses!
Junie B., Boss of Lunch-- I get to help my friend, the
cafeteria lady! And I get to wear a real actual hair net too! Who
knows.... Maybe someday I'll be the boss of the whole lunch operation!
Junie B., One-Man Band-- The whole entire first grade is
having a kickball tournament! Only, when I practice my kicking, I stub
my piggy toe so badly I can't play. But my friend Sheldon can't play
either, so maybe we can do a half-time show instead!
Whew! I'm glad I can write everything down in my Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal! And you know what? I think I might like first grade after all!
Love, (but not the mushy kind)
Based on the book series by Barbara Park
