It's about explorers looking for the New World! And there's ships and sea captains and everything! Plus here's the bestest news of all—Junie B. Jones thinks she might be the star of the whole entire production! Only, sailing the ocean blue is not as easy as it looks, apparently. 'Cause problems keep on happening.
