Description
It's March, in this sixth Gooney Bird Greene book by two-time Newbery Medal winner Lois Lowry (following Gooney Bird on the Map), and time for Mrs. Pidgeon's class to turn to page 52 in their science books to learn about human anatomy. The lesson is made far more interesting when Gooney's uncle, Dr. Oglethorpe, brings a full-sized skeleton to class—though Gooney finds herself playing detective when the skeleton mysteriously disappears. An exuberant free spirit who loves dressing in outrageous outfits, Gooney Bird is just as happy playing teacher as she is telling wild stories to entertain her classmates, in Lowry's series of fast-paced, entertaining, sometimes poignant chapter books for readers 6 to 9. Lowry's friend and collaborator Middy Thomas provides an energetic ink and wash drawing for each chapter.

"The youngsters are enthusiastic, outgoing, and funny. The running joke throughout the story is, 'Mrs. Pidgeon's second grade finds this humerus.' Readers will discover important facts about anatomy as they follow along with this remarkable class. Line drawings bring to life the unique scenarios the students create for the skeleton. A great choice for beginning chapter-book readers."—School Library Journal
