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?

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Katie Bruce | 2/6/2014

    " Gooney Bird is a unique second-grader who has a talent for telling stories that are always "absolutely true." Not only are her stories, entertaining, but she manages to sneaks lots of hints about writing and story structure in as well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Melanie | 2/6/2014

    " It tries to hard to shove the message of accepting differences and eccentricities down your throat. I hate books like that. "

    " The audio has a fun southern accent for Gooney Bird - I probably wouldn't have picked up on this without hearing the audio. I think it would make a fun classroom read for 2nd grade as students get into writing their own stories. "
