Gooney Bird Greene
Gooney Bird Greene is a character! She is a little girl who arrives in a new school, and right away her classmates at Watertower Elementary School are fascinated with her courageous fashion sense. She even has unusual lunches and even more unusual and unbelievable stories that are always “absolutely true”.
Isabella didn’t love this story, but she did like it. She thought Gooney was funny but couldn’t relate to her over the top personality. Gooney is great, she is an amazing story teller and we both loved how this book gives tips to help you tell your own stories. I thought Gooney Bird Greene was a funny and charming story that I wouldn’t mind hearing more of. Isabella on the other hand was satisfied with this one story. If your kids like outrageous characters than this may be a great pick for you.
