Goonie Bird Greene By: Lois Lowry

It all started when Goonie Bird walked into class. She was wearing green tights, a pink Toto and a white shirt with red polka dots. After a brief introduction, she asked the baffled teacher if she could have a desk right smack in the middle of everything. Day by day Goonie Bird Greene became the center of attention using her adventurous stories in addition to her extraordinary and unique outfits. Her story telling became part of the regular schedule.She even got Felicia Ann (Who never speaks and always looks down.) to speak quite loudly without raising her hand! This story will keep you wondering if her stories are true.
