Clementine, Friend of the Week

By: Sara Pennypacker

Illustrator: Marla Frazee

It's Clementine's turn to be Friend of the Week at school, which means that she gets to collect the milk money, feed the class fish, and receive a booklet in which all her classmates explain their favorite things about her. To ensure that she gets only the best compliments, Clementine spends the week trying to be as helpful and fun as possible. Then Clementine's kitten, Moisturizer, goes missing, and suddenly being Friend of the Week doesn't seem so important. Black-and-white ink illustrations.

Third-grader Clementine is gearing up for her reign as Friend of the Week.

She will get to be the all-around helper in class and her classmates will sign her Friend of the Week booklet, writing reasons “why it’s so great to have [her] around.” All is well until fourth-grader Margaret brags that her own book was filled with compliments about her organization, cleanliness, and helpfulness. Clementine knows she won’t get comments like those unless she takes action. Following Margaret’s suggestion, our heroine sets out to pay compliments in order to guarantee some nice words in return. But, being Clementine, she has to do more, including drawing free-of-charge tattoos and promising all the decorations in her dad’s closet for bicycle decorations for a bike rally. Clementine’s campaign comes to a halt when her beloved kitten, Moisturizer, goes missing. Her new skills are now put to the real test as she, along with an unlikely helper, search for her pet. Readers will empathize with Clementine’s emotional response to her missing cat and will cheer as she learns some things about herself and her best friend. Secondary characters, particularly older boy Mitchell and Clementine’s understanding parents, add much to Clementine’s life and make this a worthy addition to an already-excellent series.
