Introduction

 

Do you like to read books? Have you ever written a book? People who write books and have them published are called  “authors”. Where do authors get their ideas for their books? Do the authors write about real people or do they just use their imagination?

She has written several books with Junie as the main character. You will learn a lot about the author as well as reading a few of her stories featuring Junie. Are you ready to meet Barbara Park and her character Junie?
