Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gooney Bird Greene knows exactly where she likes to be: and#147;right smack in the middle of everything.and#8221; Sure enough, her colorful fashion sense, exuberant personality, and and#147;absolutely trueand#8221; stories land her at the center of attention most of the time, but as Mrs. Pidgeonand#8217;s second grade class prepares for their Thanksgiving pageant, the lead role of Squanto is still up for grabs. And so is the role of Room Mother, but with each of the childrenand#8217;s parents already overloaded, there are no volunteers to bring cupcakes to their play. So Gooney Bird promises to find oneand#151;in exchange for the lead. Thereand#8217;s just one catch: the person she convinces to be Room Mother insists on remaining incognito. As the class struggles to decorate the mural, make costumes, and learn their songs for the play, the suspense builds: will the pageant be a success? And who is their mysterious Room Mother?

In her second literary appearance, Gooney Bird is back with more and#147;absolutely trueand#8221; stories to tell, more tips for her fellow aspiring storytellers, and a few challenging vocabulary words to share, too.

Synopsis:

Two-time Newbery Medalist Lois Lowry returns along with Gooney Bird Greene, who makes her second literary appearance with more "absolutely true" stories to tell, more tips for her fellow aspiring storytellers, and a few challenging vocabulary words to share. Illustrations.
