Review Quotes




Praise for Gooney Bird Greene: "Lowry's masterful writing style reaches directly into her audience, managing both to appeal to young listeners and to engage readers."-- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "Veteran author Lowry produces a laugh-out-loud chapter book." Booklist "...irrepressible Gooney Bird is that rare bird in children's fiction: one that instantly becomes an amusing and popular favorite." Kirkus Reviews Praise for Gooney Bird and the Room Mother: "Larger than life and with a heart as big as her personality, Gooney Bird Greene will elicit gales of laughter, along with sighs of appreciation, from Suzy Kline and Junie B. Jones fans--as well as their parents--in this second winning, tongue-in-cheek outing." --Kirkus Reviews, starred Kirkus Reviews, Starred "This is a fast-paced read, with Thomas's black-and-white drawings highlighting key moments. This sequel stands on its own, but readers may want to go back and learn how unique Gooney Bird Greene became a part of this classroom." School Library Journal "The lively hero of the chapter book Gooney Bird Greene (2002) is back in her idyllic second-grade classroom, as the children get ready to celebrate a pageant of the First Thanksgiving." --Booklist Booklist, ALA Praise for Gooney the Fabulous: "[Gooney's] eccentric outfits and words of wisdom are peppered throughout to keep the story moving along while Thomas's characteristic black-and-white illustrations provide nice visuals. Full of new vocabulary words and information about fables . . . a must for Gooney Bird fans."--School Library Journal "Lowry nicely individualizes her characters and gets readers interested in their problems."--Booklist, ALA "If Aesop met Gooney Bird Greene, what would result? Fabulous fables, of course. . . . Gooney's outlandish outfits, take-charge (even bossy) attitude and boisterous spirit continue to be humorously likable--and fabulous. No doubt there'll be a fourth; meanwhile, this one offers a clever writing exercise for a class."--Kirkus Reviews --
