June Comfy is a girl who surely loves her bath. She'll do just about anything to relax in a mountain of bubbles.
When June manages to avoid her chores and finagle her way into Grammy Comfy's claw-foot tub, she's soaking in aromatherapy bliss. But she's also soaking in trouble when the tub toys that Grammy has given her come to life. Shirking her responsibilities might have just landed June in more hot water than she can handle.
June the Prune is an imaginative adventure told in June's own distinctive voice—full of contractions, slang, and idioms, with a glossary included at the back of the book. Since her debut on "The Amazing Adventure Series" website in 1997, June the Prune has entertained over a quarter-million readers worldwide.
