Gooney Bird Greene returns for more adventures in this chapter book series from the two-time Newbery Medal Winner Lois Lowry set in a second grade classroom.
Gooney Bird Greenes uncle, Dr. Oglethorpe, has lent her second-grade classroom a real skeleton to help them study the human body. But when the skeleton goes missing, Gooney Bird must play the role of detective and lead her class in investigating the mystery at hand. Gooney is as funny, enthusiastic, and charming as ever in this sixth installment of the acclaimed series by two time Newbery Medalist Lois Lowry.
"A great choice for beginning chapter-book readers." —SLJ
"With apt jokes, recognizable classroom curriculum, and comfortably familiar characters, not to mention sly jabs at censorship, Lowry's Gooney Bird and her skeletal adventures will satisfy readers who appreciate a humerus tale." —The Bulletin
Gooney Bird Greene’s uncle, Dr. Oglethorpe, has lent her second grade classroom a real skeleton to help them study the human body. But when the skeleton goes missing, Gooney Bird must play the role of detective and lead her class in investigating the mystery at hand. Each book in the Gooney Bird series covers one month and one topic of the school year.
“Its March!” Mrs. Pidgeon said as she wrote the days date on the chalkboard. “In like a lion, out like a lamb!”
The morning bell has rung at Watertower Elementary School, and its time for Mrs. Pidgeons class to turn to page 52 in their science books to learn about one of the most spectacular scientific subjects of all—the human body! As usual, Gooney Bird has a special plan to make learning more fun. But what on earth is in that scary-looking box that her uncle, Dr. Oglethorpe, has brought to the second grade? And what does it have to do with the charms on Gooneys jingling silver bracelet? It looks as if another special story is in the works!
