Mrs. Pidgeon has been reading Aesop''s fables to her second grade class. What''s a fable? Well, it''s a story that has animals as characters, and it teaches you something important, and . . . Once again it is Gooney Bird Greene who knows how to turn lessons into fun. She has an idea. A fabulous idea! What if each child creates his or her own fable, and tells it to the class? One by one Mrs. Pidgeon''s students create costumes and stories and morals and excitement. Everyone except Nicholas. What on earth is making Nicholas so unhappy? Leave it to Gooney Bird, of course, to help him solve his problem . . . in a truly fabulous way.

Editorial Reviews

[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.
