In her sixth book, changes continue for Clementine: her mother’s belly is growing bigger, the fourth graders continue their reign of terror over the lunchroom (no crunching of any food!), neighbor Margaret’s mother is getting married again, the third grade is going to Plimoth Plantation (and has to eat with the fourth graders!), and new In her sixth book, changes continue for Clementine: her mother’s belly is growing bigger, the fourth graders continue their reign of terror over the lunchroom (no crunching of any food!), neighbor Margaret’s mother is getting married again, the third grade is going to Plimoth Plantation (and has to eat with the fourth graders!), and new girl Olive is stealing some of our heroine’s thunder. Add to that the mystery of the ungodly stench on Bus 7 (which is assigned to Clementine’s class for the field trip) and we have classic Clementine. Not only does she solve the mystery of the smelly bus but she also figures out why fussy Margaret is so neurotic and realizes that a new student might be a new friend. Clementine’s voice is growing more sophisticated as she gets older, but it’s still true to her age and her fans’ ages, too. When Margaret finally agrees to join the rebellion and almost crunch her food, Clementine’s description is hilarious: “Margaret’s bite sounded like a moth’s footstep. It sounded like a moth’s footstep if the moth was crossing a carpet. And wearing socks.” Clementine’s family, too, is the kind that readers will want to be a part of—they take care of and love one another without being cloying. robin l. smith

    • Clementine fans will be delighted to see a new entry in this consistently entertaining series.
    • Sara Pennypacker is skilled at incorporating humorous details into Clementine’s spirited and observant narrative: “‘Spring cleaning!’ Margaret shouted, and somehow she made it sound like ‘It’s my birthday!’ and ‘Free candy for life!’ rolled into one.”
    • Kids will identify with Clementine and her world. The satisfying story alternates mostly between home and school settings, and the situations that she faces are relatable.
    • Clementine’s growing maturity as the series progresses adds authenticity and depth to her already well-developed character. Here, having come to terms with her family’s changing dynamics (they’re preparing to welcome a new baby), Clementine counsels Margaret, who has learned her mother is going to remarry. Concentrate on the positive, Clementine encourages her friend: “are there any good parts to Alan’s moving in?”
    • Marlee Frazee’s well-placed, expressive illustrations capture emotion and humor, adding to the reading experience.
