The Talented Clementine
Illustrator: Marla Frazee
Clementine's best friend who has "too many" talents can't wait to perform in "Talent-Palooza, Night of the Stars," but Clementine is worried. "What if there's a kid who doesn't have any talent?" she asks her teacher. "Not me, because I have L-O-T-S, lots. Of course. I have so many. But what if some other kid doesn't? . . . Wouldn't that person who is not me be embarrassed at a talent show?" Black-and-white illustrations.
