Description-

  • This week is going to be the best ever for Clementine. She' s been chosen as Friend of the Week in her third grade class— and she' s bubbling with excitement! This great honor means you get to be a line leader, collect lunch money from everyone, and feed the fish. It also means the other kids will give her a nifty booklet saying what they like about her. What could be better than that? Hoping to get the most glowing, perfect booklet ever, Clementine gets her friend Margaret to help her come up with ways to get on her classmates' good sides. But when Clementine' s plans don' t work out, she has to try extra hard to repair her friendship with Margaret. This peppy addition to Sara Pennypacker' s critically acclaimed series will have young listeners cheering and giggling. Narrator Jessica Almasy keeps the pace light and fun, while voicing the adventures of this fan-favorite heroine. " What is not to like about the spirited Clementine?"— Children' s Literature

    Starred review from August 7, 2006
    I have had not so good of a week," begins the irrepressible narrator of this winning caper. Pennypacker (Stuart's Cape
    ) then takes readers straight through that week, making clear that Clementine has an unfailing nose for trouble and a comical way with words. The eight-year-old proclaims herself lucky because "spectacularful ideas are always sproinging up in my brain." One of these ideas concerns her fourth-grade friend and neighbor Margaret getting glue in her hair, and Clementine's attempt to help; together they cut off nearly all of Margaret's long locks. Further strategies involve the use of permanent markers and Clementine undergoing a sympathy coif. Frazee's black-and-white illustrations of the close-cropped gals captures the mixed emotions of their shared fate. Her portraits of the heroine's three-year-old brother, "who didn't get stuck with a fruit name," and whom Clementine calls by various vegetable names, including "Spinach," "Lima Bean" and "Pea Pod," may remind readers of the charming star of Frazee's Walk On!
    Along with the humorous bits, Pennypacker seamlessly weaves into the narrative common third-grade themes, such as Clementine comparing Margaret's neatly dressed banker mother with her own overalls-clad artist mother, and envying Margaret her kitten from the litter of Clementine's own lately deceased cat, Polka Dottie. Luckily, Clementine ends her week on an up note. Fans of Judy Moody will welcome this portrait of another funny, independent third-grader. Ages 7-10.

  • AudioFile Magazine Move over, Ramona, Judy Moody, and Junie B.! Clementine, an imaginative third-grader and a great and loyal friend, has arrived. Clementine constantly hears reminders from teachers and the principal to "pay attention." Clementine knows she does pay attention . . . better than anyone else, including the adults. "Okay, fine," her attention is on the wrong things, but her motivations are simply creative attempts to be helpful. Jessica Almasy gives voice to this friendly, funny kid. Almasy sounds like a third-grader with a story to tell, bringing the precocious, ingenious Clementine to life. Her voice has the tone, pitch, and tempo of a third-grade girl struggling to do the right thing, truly S-O-R-R-Y when things go wrong, and in the end better than "Okay . . . Fine!" N.E.M.

    Gr 2-4-Clementine has been chosen as Friend of the Week for her class, and she's going to have the greatest week ever. She'll get to do all kinds of fun things like feed the fish, collect the milk money, serve as line leader, and more. But, best of all, at the end of the week, all of the kids will write in a notebook about everything that makes Clementine the best friend. Acting on suggestions from her friend, Margaret, Clementine sets out to make the best impression on her classmates so they will write extra-nice things about her. However, when Clementine's kitten goes missing, the glory of this special week is quickly forgotten and the sad little girl devotes herself to finding her beloved pet. The latest title (Hyperion, 2010) in the series by Sara Pennypacker takes listeners to the highest highs of third grade and the lowest lows of a young girl fearing she has lost something she loves. Narrator Jessica Almasy convincingly captures all of these emotions and perfectly matches her pacing to the tale's action. Clementine's fans will be transfixed by this reading, and those new to the series will come to love her through Almasy's pitch-perfect telling of Clementine's latest adventure.-Deanna Romriell, Salt Lake City Public Library, UT
