Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner or washout? When it comes to tackling third grade, Clementine is at the top of her game — okay, so maybe not all the time. After her teacher announces that the third and fourth graders will be putting on a talent show, Clementine panics. She doesn't sing or dance or play an instrument. She can't even hop with finesse. And as if she didn't feel bad enough, her perfect best friend, Margaret, has so many talents, she has to alphabetize them to keep them straight. As the night of the big "Talent-palooza" draws closer, Clementine is desperate for an act, any act. But the unexpected talent she demonstrates at the show surprises everyone — most of all herself. This next Clementine book is sure to bring the house down!

Review:

"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

About the Author

Sara Pennypacker was a painter before becoming a writer and has two absolutely fabulous children who are grown now. She has written several books. When she was in school, she never had any problem at all paying attention. Okay, fine. That last part was about somebody else. Sara lives on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

Marla Frazee is the author/illustrator of Walk On!, Santa Claus the World's Number One Toy Expert, and Roller Coaster. She is also the illustrator of The Seven Silly Eaters, Everywhere Babies and a bunch of other books. She works in a small backyard cabin under an avocado tree in Pasadena, California, and tries to pay attention to her three sons, her husband, her dog, the grocery shopping, and the laundry.
