Junie B. is going to be a Secret Santa. She is going to buy a present for someone in her class. Everybody had to draw a name. Junie B. got May's name! She was not happy. Junie wanted to give May coal because she was very mean. Junie B. started to feel bad about giving May a lump of coal. At the end of the story she realized she could be happy by making someone else happy made too.

My favorite part is when May says the B in Junie B. Jones' name. I like that part because May has never said that before. It was a big surprise. My favorite character is Junie B. because she is very funny. I do not like May because she is mean to Junie B. This story relates to my life becuase I did a Secret Santa present last year just like Junie B. did is this book. This book also has great pictures tht help tell the story. They are very funny!

I think others should read this book to find out what the surprise is.
