Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy

Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy (Junie B. Jones, #12)Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy by Barbara Park

AR Reading Level: 2.6
On the library stacks: Children's Fiction
Series: Book 12 of 17 (Junie B. Jones)

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

After reading Junie B. last week, my son JB was delighted to be instructed by his teacher to take a Junie B. home for his nightly reading. We actually own this one as well, so we each read aloud out of our own copies, switching back and forth.

In this installment, Junie B. Jones wants a pet to take to Pet Day at school. She has a dog named Tickle, but the teacher said no dogs or cats. I won't tell you what she ends up taking in, but there was a raccoon, fish, earthworm (named Noodle), ants and flies involved before the big day actually arrived.

I love any book that gets kids excited about reading, and this one certainly does the trick.
