November 18, 2013's a bad thing...

 Barbara Park, a former class clown who channeled her irreverence into the million-selling mishaps of grade schooler Junie B. Jones, has died. She was 66.  Park died Friday after a long battle with ovarian cancer, according to a statement released Sunday by Random House Books for Young Readers.
 I remember that Junie B was one of the first chapter style books that my Thing 1 loved-we had the whole series-spent many days in Borders looking for the next one and spent many happy nights having story time; it's how I perfected my "character voices" :):):)
