Junie B. Jones is in Kindergarten. She doesn't like a boy named Jim in her class. Jim has a birthday party and she doesn't get invited. She took an invitation from a little boy. She had to go to the principal's office, because she got caught. Jim had to give her an invitation, too. Junie B. Jones and her mom went to the store and bought a tool belt for Jim's party. When Junie B. Jones got home, she opened it and hammered nails through her door. She got in trouble by her mom and dad and had to return the gift.

My favorite part is when she puts the bag on her head because that was funny and sometimes I feel nervous like that, too. My least favorite character is Jim because he is mean to Junie B. Jones. This story relates to my life because it reminds me of school sometimes. The story doesn't have alot of pictures, but I can see the pictures in my head.

People should read this story because it's very funny!
