Product description

Two-time Newbery Medalist Lois Lowry introduces a new girl in class who loves being the center of attention and tells the most entertaining " absolutely true" stories. There' s never been anyone like Gooney Bird Greene at Watertower Elementary School. What other new kid comes to school wearing pajamas and cowboy boots one day and a polka-dot t-shirt and tutu on another? Gooney Bird has to sit right smack in the middle of the class because she likes to be in the middle of everything. She is the star of story time and keeps her teacher and classmates on the edge of their seats with her " absolutely true" stories. But what about her classmates? Do they have stories good enough to share?

Review quote

" Lowry' s masterful writing style reaches directly into her audience, managing both to appeal to young listeners and to engage older readers." -- "The Bulletin" " A hybrid of Harriet, Blossom, and Anastasia, irrepressible Gooney Bird is that rare bird in children' s fiction: one that instantly becomes an amusing and popular favorite." -- "Kirkus Reviews"
