Gooney Bird Greene has a fabulous idea after her teacher reads fables to the class. The children learn that fables are stories with animal characters that teach something important. Gooney's fabulous idea is that each student create their own fable and tell it to the class! Everyone but Nicholas is excited about their stories and costumes. Can Gooney Bird find out why Nicholas is unhappy and get him to join in the fun? Now that would be truly fabulous!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate Mowery | 11/14/2013

    " My favorite parts of these books is the tendency of the children to immediately shout out stories about themselves. Like children ever do that in real life. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeri | 9/5/2013

    " Gooney teaches her classmates about fables. Love the vocabulary and her enchanting ways, but (although still worth reading) this one wasn't quite as good as the last one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christa | 9/2/2013

    " We did this one as a CD in our car ride to Kansas over the summer. It was a good way to keep the kids occupied, without busting out another DVD. The kids didn't love the narrator's voice. They said that they liked mine better. Too bad I can't drive and read at the same time. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shoshana | 4/26/2013

    " Okay, so it's not long on plot. But the characters are real and hilarious, and it's exactly what beginning readers need. Thank you, Lois Lowry. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natalie | 4/6/2013

    " The girls loved this book. We are creating and acting out our own fables. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tamsyn | 11/21/2012

    " I love Gooney (and am a huge fan of Lois Lowry), and enjoyed this one, though not quite as much as the first two. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Annette | 5/15/2012

    " Great series! Perfect for second graders! My girls really love the Gooney Bird books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dani | 4/28/2012

    " The story is cute, but it's just too much of a stretch to say that the kids are in 2nd grade. I think 4th graders may be able to pull off the writings these kids are doing- maybe even 3rd graders- but I have yet to meet a second grader like the kids in this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vic | 10/20/2011

    " Clever story of a girl who has no fear and how everyone can have fun learning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela Ferrari | 6/16/2011

    " Another favorite Gooney book has her class create fables about themselves, but Gooney cant be happy unless everyone is happy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan P | 6/10/2011

    " Gooney is cute. A little obnoxious, but these books are a fun quick read for Junie B Fans - who already appreciate obnoxiousness! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cesar | 1/15/2011

    " It's about Gooney bird. Gooney Bird and his class all have to tell a fable. I like Tyrone a lot 'cause he raps every second. It's just hilarious! I love him! He's my favorite character! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonia and Julia | 11/13/2010

    " Gooney the Fabulous is great!I enjoyed the fables in the book.So you know,in the book Gooney's classmates,her teacher, and herself made fables,like Aesop.The fables were about animals that start with the first letter of a person's name. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 7/21/2010

    " Gooney Bird Greene reminds me of the little girl who watches my cat for me when I go places - such an individual and with so much self-confidence - everyone loves her. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cynthia | 8/11/2009

    " We loved this collection. Listened to it in the car and while working in the house. Very touching and laugh out loud hilarious. "

    " Actually the only thing I could find with the 3rd title in the series - just more good Gooney Bird - can't wait to read the 4th one! "
