There's never been anyone like Gooney Bird Greene at Watertower Elementary School. What other new kid comes to school wearing pajamas and cowboy boots one day and a polka-dot t-shirt and tutu on another?

She is the star of story time and keeps her teacher and classmates on the edge of their seats with her absolutely true stories. But what about her classmates?

Kids love it!

My kids really enjoyed listening, and when the story was done, they realized they had effortlessly learned a lot about story telling. Their only complaint was that it was not longer.
