“I just like ‘B’ and that’s all.”

Barbara Park, author of the well-loved Junie B. Jones series, has died at age 66 after a long battle with ovarian cancer. In 1992, Park began writing about the smart-mouthed kindergartener and since then, has written more than 30 chapter books starring Junie. Her books have sold more than 55 million copies in North America and have also inspired a musical theater production. Despite her never having written a book specifically for adults, the works of Barbara Park have been enjoyed by those of all ages.
