To the talented Denise Brunkus …
who draws Junie B. with a sense of style
,
a sense of spirit, and—best of all—a sense of humor.
What a wonderful gift.

I smiled at that nice thought.

Then I peeked over the side of my desk. And I tried to wiggle my piggy toe.

It still felt sore.

That's because yesterday a little trouble happened when I was practicing in my backyard. And it's called, I accidentally kicked my ball over the fence. And I didn't want to go get it. So I had to find something else to kick.

And then ha!

I spied Mother's brand-new watering can!

It was the one with the funny cow painted on it.

And it was sitting right out in the middle of the yard!

I laughed out loud at that perfect target!

“I bet I can kick that silly cow right over the moon!” I said.

Then I rubbed my hands together very excited.

And I backed all the way up to the fence.

Then
VA-ROOM
!

I took off running!

And
ZOOM
!

I ran faster and faster!

And
KA-BOOM
!

I kicked that can as hard as I could!

And
OWIE OW OW
!

That dumb-bunny can was filled full of
water
! And nobody even told me about that problem!

I fell down in the grass very painful.

Then I rolled around and around. And I hollered real loud.

“MY TOE! MY TOE! MY TOE!” I hollered. “MY TOE! MY TOE! MY TOE!”

Mother hurried to the back door.

“Junie B.! Oh my goodness! What's wrong?” she called.
