Reviews

"The story unfolds with fresh humor that keeps readers interested. Thomas's pencil drawings bring life to the characters. A fine selection for beginning chapter-book readers and as a read-aloud."--School Library Journal "Thomas's illustrations help the new reader see the final "poem" and imagine Mrs. Pidgeon's reaction to their heartfelt offering of sadness for their teacher. Few books for early readers address such a difficult issue, but Lowry's capable storytelling does it with grace--much like Mrs. Pidgeon herself."--Horn Book "Few beginning chapter books have the range of this one, from hilarity to sadness, from outrage to compassion, and few writers could manage it with such finesse. Often amusing and sometimes subtly instructive, the fourth book in the Gooney Bird Greene series is well suited to reading aloud."--Booklist -The story unfolds with fresh humor that keeps readers interested.
