"Junie B. Jones is Not a Crook" by Allison Greory is a full-length comedy. Broadway World wrote "Although a children's production, Junie B. Jones is by no means shallow. Junie B. and her friends face various dilemmas and moral lessons, including foregoing selfish desires and the power of friendships. The show provides children with great principles. Gregory does a good job of providing plenty of humor in the play, both for children and adults as well as ensuring that Junie learns from her experiences."
