Clementine Books 1-7

By Sarah Pennypacker
Clementine is having not so good of a week.

-On Monday she's sent to the principal’s office for cutting off Margaret’s hair.
- Tuesday, Margaret's mother is mad at her. 
- Wednesday, she's sent to the principal... again. 
- Thursday, Margaret stops speaking to her. 
- Friday starts with yucky eggs and gets worse. 
- And by Saturday, even her mother is mad at her.
Okay, fine. Clementine is having a DISASTROUS week.

This is such a cute and well written series. I hope there are more. Clementine is a little firecracker of a girl and is capable of getting herself into more trouble than most little girls. One of the things I love about this series is that Clementine is such a unique character that it is easy to believe she is a real little girl living out in the world somewhere. Her family is another high point with her artist mother, her father who is the maintenance man in their apartment complex, and her little brother who we never figure out his real name because Clementine is determined he’ll have a vegetable name because she got stuck with a fruit name. This series is cute, full of life and troubles, and would be a wonderful read-aloud to kids. It’s a great book because it will entertain kids and adults alike as the kids will understand and laugh at Clementine’s shenanigans and the adults will shake their heads and laugh at her parents’ reactions. This is a great series and can be read quickly with a smile.

I give the series a 4 out of 5
