Gooney the Fabulous


Gooney the Fabulous Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mrs. Pidgeon has been reading Aesops fables to her second grade class. Whats a fable? Well, its a story that has animals as characters, and it teaches you something important, and . . . Once again it is Gooney Bird Greene who knows how to turn lessons into fun. She has an idea. A fabulous idea! What if each child creates his or her own fable, and tells it to the class? One by one Mrs. Pidgeons students create costumes and stories and morals and excitement. Everyone except Nicholas. What on earth is making Nicholas so unhappy? Leave it to Gooney Bird, of course, to help him solve his problem . . . in a truly fabulous way.


Gooney Bird Greene is back and more fabulous than ever as she and Ms. Pidgeon's second-grade class each write their own fables to share during the school's holiday celebration. Illustrations.
