YMMV / Junie B. Jones

  • Broken Base: There have been two bases for the books that exist: One base consisting of some parents who recommend them to their kids; another base consisting of others who find them inappropriate and the title character annoying.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Parents frequently bash the books for teaching kids to throw tantrums and use bad grammar.
  • Tear Jerker: In Jingle Bells, Batman Smells, class tattletale May is for once being non-maliciously happy as she anticipates the Christmas party. She says that having a Secret Santa makes you feel like you have a best friend — but some of the other students remind her they already have best friends. May, a bit deflated, says that having a Secret Santa makes her feel like she has a best friend too.
  • We're Still Relevant, Dammit!: Some of the first grade adventures have used this trope.
