An icky uh-oh moment makes for an entertaining story. Cleo has been bonked on the head by an avalanche of toys and had to wear underwear for a hat in a snowstorm, but nothing compares to the trauma of barfing on Mrs. Kenly?s fur coat. On the way to a birthday party, a combination of carsickness and too many pancakes turns Cleo green in the face, and before anything can be ...more

I didn't particularly like this book. I found it odd that part of the story revolved around Cleo and her sister Lilly playing dress-up with fur coats while their owners are at a party hosted by the girls' parents and pretending they are smoking. The author even describes the fur coats as "a bunch of dead animals". Cleo gets car sick while she is being driven to a birthday party. She vomits on Mrs. Kenly's mink. When she gets to the party, all is forgiven. Cleo even shows off her diving technique ...more

In the vein of other heroines of children's realistic fiction such as Ramona Quimby, spunky Cleo makes mistakes and braves the growing pains of being a child in this installment of the Uh-oh, Cleo series.

Harper depicts an authentic representation of what it is like to be a child, from sibling hierarchy to not being able to express one's needs to adults to the enormity of a situation like vomiting on someone.

Suggest to fans of Clementine, Ramona Quimby, Junie B. Jones, or fans of realistic fictio

Cleo always gets car sick and this time was no exception when she's headed to a slumber party. So to Cleo's shock and dismay she throws up on Mrs. Kenly who by the way is wearing a fur coat. She is so embarrassed. But these things are apart of life and Cleo learns that this is what we have to deal with.


This book is a good early chapter book for ages 7 and 8, who need to read at a lower level.

Great for 1st and 2nd graders.

Everyone has some indelibly embarassing moments from childhood and for Cleo that will include getting carsick and throwing up on neighbor Mrs. Kenly's fur coat. Author Jessica Harper is in tune with the sharpness of children's feelings in the aftermath of embarassment. Part of the "Uh-oh, Cleo" series which apparently highlights typical childhood disasters as they happen to Cleo.

I think that girls will enjoy this early chapter book. The title alone should get them interested in the book.
