Gooney Bird Greene

By Lois Lowry
Reviewed by Karen

Gooney Bird Greene is the new girl in second grade and as soon as she arrives the other students can't get enough of her unique and "absolutely true" stories. She is the main character in all of her stories and the center of everyone's attention and that is exactly where she wants to be! I liked the "absolutely true" explanations behind the unbelievable sounding stories. Gooney Bird's story titled "Beloved Catman Is Consumed by a Cow" was really about a cat who became infatuated with a cow. This is a great chapter book for younger readers (especially girls). Readers will want to hear more Gooney Bird stories.
