About the Author
Lois Lowry has written many books beloved by children and adults alike, which have garnered countless honors and awards, including two Newbery Medals. She and the illustrator Middy Thomas have been friends for years and enjoy working on the Gooney Bird books together. Lois Lowry lives in Massachusetts and Middy Thomas lives in Maine.
"Gooney Bird doesn't need much help putting herself on the map. She'll be famous for years to come."-Kirkus
"In this fifth book in the series, Lowry deals with the ticklish classroom issue of students gloating about vacations. She (and Mrs. Pidgeon and Gooney Bird) handle it well, helping young readers reflect on the competitive chatter that often strains the fabric of a class right before holidays."-Horn Book
"Witty and perceptive in equal measure, the book features fine-tuned dialogue, kid-friendly illustrations, and a strongly realized classroom setting." -Booklist
