Wouldn't it be funny if somebody told you that chickens can pluck a hole in your head well, in the book, Junie B. Jones Has a Peep in Her Pocket, that's what Junie B. gets told. She finds out that her class will be going on a trip to the farm. When Junie B's mom takes her shopping, her mom buys her a disposable camera, she thinks that you take your pictures then you throw away the camera without taking out the film. When Jim, a boy in her class, tells her that chickens pluck a hole in your head and ponies attack, she refuses to get off the bus until the farmer lets her be his helper. At the farm she sees a baby chick that she really wants to keep. To find out if she gets to keep it read Junie B. Jones Has a Peep in Her Pocket.

I thought this book was very funny because Jim, a boy in her class, told her that ponies attack. I felt like laughing because she thought that ponies could stomp her. Junie B. changed in this book because in the beginning she did not want to go to the farm that by the end of the book she was having such a wonderful time that she did not want to leave the farm.

I recommend this book because I thought it was funny. People who like to laugh would enjoy this book.
