This was a fun story to read. Unfortunately, I saw the last illustration in the story and it spoiled the ending for me! I enjoyed all the spelling word exercises throughout the story. The ending was great—Gooney Bird did a wonderful job saving the pageant from being a “FIASCO”—“A total failure.” Her storytelling, woven with spelling words and definitions was original and expressive. Lois Lowry uses an appropriate style of writing for a transitional book. The typeface is large and easy to read. Illustrations are interspersed throughout the story for visual appeal. The story has a mystery to solve that makes the plot fresh and lively.
