The Junie B. Jones Stupid Smelly Bus Tour makes a stop at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 25 at Borders Books & Music, 16549 NE 74th St., in Redmond Town Center.

Random House Children’s Books is celebrating the fifth anniversary of the tour in support of author Barbara Park’s bestselling Junie B. Jones series. Last year, the tour brought Junie B.’s hilarious antics to life at book retailers in 25 cities, reaching close to 20,000 fans of all ages.

Park has created an original script for the tour, which will feature live performances by two actors playing Junie B. Jones and Mr. Woo, the bus driver. The two actors are traveling from city to city in a bright pink “Stupid Smelly” School Bus adorned with colorful graphics, including the series’ signature checkerboard and the faces of Junie B.’s friends in the windows.

At the event, Junie B. will open her “Big Pink Trunk of Junk” and perform a “Show and Tell,” sharing instantly recognizable items from the series such as her stuffed elephant, “Phillip Johnny Bob” and the floaty ball from the toilet tank, Junie B.’s favorite “plumbing supply.”
