Name: ME! ME! It's Junie B. Jones!
Likes: My grampa Frank Miller. Plus his lovely wife Helen. Mother and Daddy (sometimes). My bestest friend Herbert (all the time!). Pasketti and meatballs. Cheese sandwiches.
Dislikes: In kindergarten, I did not like Jim I Hate. Only then it turned out that he loved me. And so I did a flip-flop on that friendship. This year, I do not like Tattletale May. Also, I do not like roosters…and clowns…and ponies that stomple you to death.
Name: My friend That Grace
Likes: That Grace likes pink high-tops. Last year I was her bestest friend in kindergarten. This year she sits next to a new girl on the bus. I do not care for that situation.
