This is a splendid story of a little boy who wants to be anthing but himself. John learns a valuable lesson about appreciating the wonderful thing about being just who you are and that being something or someone else is not always what it seems. I grew up with this story and think it is timeless in its message to children of all ages. There is also a message in this book for parents and other adults who influence children. Listen to children and hear their concerns. Delightful, entertaining and a treasure. This book should be back in print!

Just Only John is a terrific book about the imagination of a young child. John is a 4 year-old, who wants to be someone else. John even visits a local witch to help him on his quest to find out what it's like to not be John anymore. At the end of the story, just incase the moral isn't clear enough, Kent states it for us.

I am so glad that my mother hadn't thrown out my old chilhood book. When I read it to my boys, they loved it and it was one that they loved to read when they first started to learn to read for themselves. It teaches a very simple lesson that many adults have yet to learn. I'm glad that I'm able to share it with my children and hope that it will be reprinted for generations to come.

My mother bought this book used for me when I was in kindergarten (30+ years ago), it was my favorite book back then. Now that I have my own daughter I prayed my mother still had my copy, luckily she did, it's a little beat up but my daughter loves it (and the fact that I had written my own name in the book when I had brought it in to show & tell in kindergarten). I was sorry to hear that it is no longer in print, hopefully the publisher will reconsider.

This book was a favorite with my children who are now all in their 50's. I was so delighted to find it at Amazon for a new great-grandson who is also "Just Only John" !!
