Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's Clementine's turn to be Friend of the Week She gets to be line leader, collect the lunch money, and feed the fish. Even better, the other kids will make her a booklet, full of the things they value about having her in the class. After reading her friend Margaret's booklet, Clementine begins to get nervous and a little jealous --she has to get a great booklet now. Fortunately, she has a lot of astoundishing ideas for getting the kids to write great stuff about her. Unfortunately, just as she's working on the best one, something terrible happens to her beloved kitten Moisturizer. Worst of all, exactly when she needs a friend the most, Margaret lets her down.

Or does she...? Praise for Clementine *Humorous scenarios tumble together, blending picturesque dialogue with a fresh perspective as only the unique Clementine can offer. Frazee's engaging pen-and-ink drawings capture the energy and fresh-faced expressions of the irrepressible heroine. A delightful addition to any beginning chapter-book collection. --School Library Journal, starred review

Reminiscent of both Ramona and Junie B. Jones, Clementine is an ingenuous third-grader with a talent for trouble and a good heart. Frazee's expressive ink drawings capture every nuance of the characters' emotions, from bemusement to anger to dejection. Sometimes touching and frequently amusing, this engaging chapter book is well suited to reading alone or reading aloud to a roomful of children. -Booklist

For The Talented Clementine:

Recommenders hoping to turn indifferent readers into voracious ones often reach first for solid, funny chapter-book series; this follow-up to Clementine proves that Pennypacker's deserves a place alongside those by Johanna Hurwitz, Beverly Cleary, and Megan MacDonald. Frazee's polished, warm-spirited line drawings, not all seen, capture the endearing idiosyncrasies of its heroine, who will equally charm returning readers and those meeting her for the first time.--Booklist

For Clementine's Letter:

...she shines with a vibrant spirit that can never be completely extinguished, even when she is feeling down. Frazee's pen-and-ink drawings perfectly capture Clementine's personality and her world.--School Library Journal, starred review
