Court is in session, with Judge Juliette presiding! Ever since preschool, Juliette’s favorite game has been settling cases. This young girl, with a firm sense of fairness, adjudicates all kinds of neighborhood disputes right in her own backyard—from determining a fair bedtime to figuring out where to locate competing lemonade stands.

What will Judge Juliette do?
