Overview

Vote for Rosie!

Sure, she wears geeky-looking glasses and she tattles on her classmates. But, hey, snitching has its good side. Thanks to Rosie, Ronald Milligan has stopped blowing his nose in the water fountain. And now, Rosie is determined to do even more for her classmates — by becoming president of the fourth grade!

With the help of her two best (and only) friends, Rosie devises a brilliant campaign to defeat the two most popular kids in her class: soccer star Alan Allen and model-wannabe Summer Lynne Jones. But when despicable Alan steals Rosie's unbeatable campaign slogans, it's time to watch out! Nosy Rosie is on the warpath!

About the Author

BARBARA PARK is best known as the author of the wildly popular New York Times bestselling Junie B. Jones series, which has kept kids (and their grown-ups) laughing—and reading—for over two decades. Beloved by millions, the Junie B. Jones books have been translated into multiple languages and are a time-honored staple in elementary school classrooms around the world. Every bit as funny as her best-known character, Barbara once said, “There are those who believe that the value of a children’s book can be measured only in terms of the moral lessons it tries to impose or the perfect role models it offers. Personally, I happen to think that a book is of extraordinary value if it gives the reader nothing more than a smile or two. In fact, I happen to think that’s huge.”

Barbara Park is also the author of award-winning middle grade novels and bestselling picture books, including Skinnybones, Mick Harte Was Here, and The Kid in the Red Jacket.

Barbara Park was born in New Jersey in 1947 and spent most of her adult life in Arizona, where she and her husband, Richard, raised two sons. Barbara died in 2013, but her legacy lives on in the laughter her books give to readers all over the world.

This book is a great book. I think it is good. I read it for school. I really liked this book. That's like an honor, because there aren't many books that I like! I love to read, I just need to find the books that interest me. Barbara Park is the best author. She does it again!!

I can be called a Rosie because I have glasses, but they are not geeky. I have a best friend named Genna & and she and i do everything together. Although I am not in the fourth grade I am in 6th. but there are a lot of cool kids like cassie, Brittney, and a lot more.
