Gladys Gutzman is a lady who works at Junie B's. school. She is the lunch lady, or "Boss of Cookies", as Junie B.. She is round, has short fluffy hair, and wears glasses. She hands out cookies and milk as snacks and prepares lunches for the children. In Junie B.: First Grader: Boss of Lunch, she lets Junie B. work in the cafeteria after the latter complains that the first graders don't get cookies for snacks, unlike the Kindergarten books. In Junie B. Jones and a Little Monkey Business, it is said that kindergärtners have snack tickets to use on milk and cookies. Junie B. likes her so much, that in Junie B. Jones is a Beauty Shop Guy, she unofficially changes her name to Pinkie Gladys Gutzman (from her favorite color and favorite school staff member) and wants everyone to call her that.
