"Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus" kicked off the Junie B. Jones story in 1992. Park published 30 books in the series about the funny kindergartener (and, from book 18 onward, first-grader) navigating the challenges of school and family. In addition to the Junie B. Jones series, Park wrote a couple of picture books and more than a dozen middle-grade novels, which were what she began with before finding the voice of Junie B. Jones.
