"Mommy Daddy!" That's the shouting sounds of Junie B. Jones thinking that monsters exist and that one is living under her bed. It all starts when mean Jim tells her that monsters live under her bed. Jim is always making things up, yet, Junie B. still believes him. Her parents are trying to calm her down but its not working. Will Junie B's monster streak ever end?

I like this book because it is exciting and funny. Junie acted strangely when she was told monsters existed. I found her actions to be comical. Junie B. Jones reminds me of myself because I was afraid of monsters under my bed when I was little! This is not like any other book I have read because it is told from a five-year-olds perspective. Junie B. changed from the beginning of the book because her family helps her through her fear.

I recommend this book to kids of any age because it is hilarious!
