Because finders keepers, losers weepers. And guess what? There's a new boy in kindergarten and he is the handsomest. The only thing is both Grace and Lucille want him to be their boyfriend. Maybe he will love Junie B. when he sees her wonderful pen! It is okay to keep it, right? Junie B.

Reviews

Talkin' Broadway

"Gregory does a good job of providing plenty of humor in the piece, both for children and adults, as well as ensuring that Junie learns from her experiences. The included issues of right and wrong . . . are simple yet incredibly effective lessons for younger children to learn."

AZCentral.com

"A lesson on ethics and empathy told with heart and humor."

Broadway World

"Although a children's production, Junie B. Jones is by no means shallow. Junie B. and her friends face various dilemmas and moral lessons, including forgoing selfish desires and the power of friendship. The show provides children with great principles."
