The Talented Clementine


  • Whether shopping for new shoes with her mother, saving the talent show, or dining with her parents at the Ritz-no-crackers restaurant, she is laugh-out-loud funny. Frazee’s line drawings are plentiful and just right. Libraries will need multiple copies of this one, because early chapter-book readers will jump at the chance to spend another eventful week with Clementine.
    –Mary Jean Smith, School Library Journal
  • Clementine’s everyday dilemmas make this a novel that most kids will easily identify with, and as it is written from a first-person perspective, Clementine’s dry humor and unusual outlook make this an especially entertaining school story.
