Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Josephina likes to fiddle and fidget with things to figure out how they work. On school picture day, her curiosity begins on the school bus. When she fusses with the gearshift, her spruced-up classmates get splattered with oil. As the photographer sets up the class shot, Josephina fiddles with the sprinkler system, and they all get drenched. When she fidgets with the heating system, they are covered with soot. Will the class photo ever get taken? Josephina finally puts her tinkering to good use in this rambunctious read-aloud about a common school event. Illustrated by Thor Wickstrom

Josephina Caroleena Wattasheena the First creates havoc on school picture day when she tries to figure out how things work, but she rescues the situation when the photographer's camera will not operate.

Horn Book Review

Although everyone else is prepared for school picture day, Josephina Caroleena Wattasheena the First would rather figure out how a pencil sharpener or a sprinkler system works than sit still for a picture. Of course, disaster after disaster follows, but in the end Josephina's tinkering saves the day. Zany illustrations and the fun-to-read repetitions in the text combine for a delightfully funny story.
