From the moment Gooney Bird makes her grand entrance at the Watertower Elementary School, her fellow second-graders are immediately intrigued. After all, it’s not every day that a new student shows up to Mrs. Pidgeon’s classroom wearing pajamas and cowboy books! Her colorful fashion sense, exuberant personality, and “absolutely true” stories land her at the center of attention most of the time.
 
Join Gooney Bird as she greets every new challenge with excitement, aplomb, and a plethora of vocabulary words in this delightfully funny three-book collection.

This is a fun book! I really enjoyed reading about Gooney Bird! It was kinda refreshing to read about a second-grader who wasn't crazy and spastic (ref. Pippi Longstocking, Huck Finn, etc). Maybe I've been taking care of kids a lot recently :) Anyway. Gooney Bird is great. You should get to know her!

First of all, this book is awesome! This book is for people who like twists to stories. I totally recommend this to anyone ages 5-14.

My 7-year-old daughter and I read this together and laughed and laughed. I could see great potential in using this as a read-aloud for others in her class to give them ideas for stories they, too, could tell and write themselves. Immediately went online to see if there were more in the series.
