Product description

The fourth hilarious title in Lowis Lowry's popular Gooney Bird series! It s a cold January at the Watertower Elementary School the perfect weather for Gooney Bird Greene to break out her special brain-warming hat! It's a good thing she has one. Gooney Bird's brain will need to be as warm as possible this month, because Mrs. Pidgeon is teaching her class about poetry. Who knew there could be so many different ways to write a poem? Haikus, couplets, limericks Mrs. Pidgeon s students soon find that writing good poetry takes a lot of hard work and creative thinking. Gooney Bird and her classmates are up to the challenge. But just when things are going well, the kids get some terrible news. Gooney Bird will need all the inspiration her brain can muster to organize the most important poem the class has ever written."

Review quote

"The story unfolds with fresh humor that keeps readers interested. Thomas s pencil drawings bring life to the characters. A fine selection for beginning chapter-book readers and as a read-aloud."--"School Library Journal""Thomas s illustrations help the new reader see the final poem and imagine Mrs. Pidgeon s reaction to their heartfelt offering of sadness for their teacher. Few books for early readers address such a difficult issue, but Lowry s capable storytelling does it with grace much like Mrs. Pidgeon herself."--"Horn Book""Few beginning chapter books have the range of this one, from hilarity to sadness, from outrage to compassion, and few writers could manage it with such finesse. Often amusing and sometimes subtly instructive, the fourth book in the Gooney Bird Greene series is well suited to reading aloud."--"Booklist""
