R.I.P. Barbara Park, author of the beloved “Junie B. Jones” books. Park has passed away at 66 after a long battle with ovarian cancer. With irreverent, slangy titles such as “Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus” or “Junie B., First Grader: Cheater Pants,” the six-year-old’s adventures are instantly relatable to kids, and became classics for all of us who grew up with them.
Well, I’d like to thank this lady for getting me into reading…even if she’s the same person that caused my aversion to “stewie, pewie tomatoes.”
Rest in Peace.
