"I have had not so good of a week.
Well, Monday was a pretty food day, if you don't count Hamburguer Surprise at lunch and Margaret's mother coming to get her. Or the stuff that happened in the principal's office when I got sent there to explain that Margaret's hair was not my fault and besides she looks okay without it, but I couldn't, because Principal Rice was gone, trying to calm down Margaret's mother.
Someone should tell you not to answer the phone in the p...more

But I won't, because really you should just read the book yourself. Or, alternatively, find someone to read it to.
Okay, one quote.

Hmm, this seems like a book i'd pick up if i were waiting for something and didn't have anything to do, or if i forgot my book at home and had to get something from the library to read after the test. Fast. Like, 'if i don't get a book now i'll die' fast.
I felt like it wasn't original. Here's my equation:
Junie B. Jones+Lucy Rose+Ivy and Bean=Clementine. All of the book series I just listed had really ignorant protagonists. When i finished this book, I mental...more
My indy bookstore recommended this to me. Called it the "Ramona for this generation." I enthusiastically agree.
This book is for the 6-8 set. A wonderful book of all the ways Clementine gets in trouble, in one week! She is 8 years old and she IS paying attention, just not to the things adults want her to pay attention too. She has a wonderful creative side to her. And she has all those problems w...more
Clementine is a very fun and active third grader and she is always getting the blame for things and getting sent to the principles office. Clementine wants to be an artist like her mom and she is very creative. She finds Margaret in the bathr...more
It was so stinkin cute and funny.
Everything Clementine does makes sense- to her.
People keep telling Clementine to pay attention. But she is paying attention- to what's going on outside the window, or at her neighbor's desk, or the egg stain on her art teacher's scarf.
Clementine is bright and impulsive and charming. And emotive and vulnerable. Pennypacker really does Clementine's POV well; and I really connected with her, an...more
Clementine is an 8 year old girl who lives in an apartment building and has a best friend named Margaret. She lives with her mother who is an artist, her father who is the apartment manager, and her 3 year old brother, whom she never called by his name. She always called him some sort of vegetable. Clementine is always accused of not paying attention and is sent to the principal’s office often. One day Margaret and Clementine were both in the art room and Mar...more
My only problem? There aren't more of them. So Sara please keep writing them!
Clementine is a kid who has some problems paying attention. Well, no - she pays attention just fine, except somehow she's never paying attention to what she's *supposed* to pay attention to. Interestingly,...more
I was laughing aloud as I read this to Coco last night. This morning I was reading more to her over some Cheerios, and Brent started laughing, the older children tumbled into the kitchen for breakfast and asked about the book, so I read them some funny parts. We ended up starting over and we read the book all the way to the end.
There is nothing earth shattering, no real bits of wisdom, not even a surprise ending in the book. . . but it had my entire family sitting aroun...more
Things just keep going wrong for Clementine, but p...more
And it was very sweet. Clementine is in 2nd grade, and has trouble paying attention. She lives in an apartment building where the girl upstairs, fussy Margaret, is usually her friend. Clementine has an artist Mom and a building maintenance guy Dad. They are happy, and Clementine's struggle...more

Clementine, oh, Clementine! What a riot! This girl is a real sparkler. Reading about her thought processes cracks me right up! And I love seeing the various levels to which the adults around her understand these processe...more
