Jim is having a birthday party at his house, he is turning six. He is inviting everyone from his class, all except for Junie B. Jones (the anoying five year old). Junie B. gets very upset and jealous that she is not being invited.

When Junie B. gets home her grandpa calls, he asks her if she wants to help him fix a toilet (because she loves fixing things).

You should read "Junie B. Jones and That Meanie Jim?s Birthday", to find out if Junie B. Jones goes to the party, or if she goes to fix the toilet. It will be a surpise ending.

I recommend this book to people that like pictures in chapter books and short books. This book is very much like my life, because when I didn?t get invited to a birthday party I felt down in the dumps.

There is a lesson to be learned, the lesson is don?t be annoying and you?ll have more friends.
