Jones, are the main characters with Junie B’s character of central importance. She is loveable, bright, and a friendly character, who lives with her family. She has blue-green eyes and reddish-brown hair. The family has a dog named Tickle. Her favorite foods are spaghetti and meatballs, ice cream and lemon pie. Junie B Jones. is afraid of clowns, ponies, and roosters. She has catch phrases for different circumstances like "Hello! How are you today?", "Yeah, only", and "Wowie wow wow!" And just like any individual, she has her share of friends and rivals at the kindergarten.
Bob Jones is Junie B’s father, who is shown to have a loveable personality, affectionately called "Daddy" by Junie B. Susan Jones is Junie B’s mother, who is at times over-protective. Junie B. calls her "Mother". She is shown to wear make-up and has short, blonde hair. Ollie Jones is Junie B’s kid brother. As it usually is in almost every household, there is a sibling rivalry between the two, as Junie B. does not like Ollie too much, however, as an elder sister, she does care for him. She has a grandfather as well whom she calls "Grampa Miller". His full name is Frank Miller. There is a "Grandma Miller" as well whose real name is Helen Miller. The Millers’ look after the kids (Ollie and Junie B.) while Bob and Susan are away.

Jones shares a different chemistry with her teachers and the school staff. The principal, whom she calls "Principal", is someone whom she thinks is a king, although he does not wear a crown. She does not like the "typing lady" in the principal’s office whom she thinks is scary and intimidating.
