I. Love. Clementine.

The End.

Okay, here's a little more: Clementine is chosen as her classroom's Friend of the Week, which means her classmates are going to think of things that make her a good friend, and write those things down in a booklet they'll give to her on Friday. Exciting! Now Clementine just has to figure out how to impress everyone in her class so they give her glowing "reviews". (Minor Spoiler: The "free tattoos, courtesy of a box of markers and her artistic talents" plan does not w

Well, I've been putting off an "it was amazing" rating since I've started reading this series. Upon finishing this 4th entry, I can't help myself; I must sing praise for these books. The author has really captured something special in Clementine and company. Their story is magical and I'm charmed chapter after chapter. If you haven't read any Clementines, you need to start.

My hope is that the author and illustrator will take their time if and when they pen more of these. I've been apprehensive e
How did it take me this long to read a Clementine book?! Charmed the socks off of me! She is a third-grade heroine who could be bosom friends with Ramona. I'm totally tickled that she has a cat named Moisturizer ("the best names in the world are on labels in bathrooms") and a mom who does artwork and yoga. Her family life is sweet, supportive, and functional. The charm factor is upped even higher by Marla Frazee's expressive pen-and-ink illustrations. I imagine it would be so much fun for an ill ...more
I read this for my Children's Literature class -- so adorable!
Fans of Ramona Quimby will be delighted with the tales of third grader Clementine and her adventures in Boston . In Friend of the Week, Clementine is chosen as her class’s Friend of the Week, an honor that includes being line leader and having a book of compliments written by her classmates. In order to ensure the best book, Clementine decides to win her classmates hearts with gifts and flattery. But when tragedy strikes and her belov
Clementine is friend of the week in class. She loses her cat Moisturizer. She thinks Margret is breaking up their friendship but she is trying to help find her cat. She found her cat in Boston and gets her friend of the week book signed.
Still laugh-out-loud hilarious. Still oh-so adorable. Oh I hope there are more and more and somehow the author keeps up the good work without getting stale. Someone please tell the illustrator that the 2-page spreads in which our little darling communicates with Mrs. Rice (the principal to everyone else, but a favorite counselor/ auntie to C.) are a must for every book in the series.

Reread Jan 2015, still love it.
Love that, like Ramona Quimby, she has the best intentions, but is "N O T, not" al

I loved these audio stories. C and I listened to them on a road trip and I got hooked on Clementine, who takes notes by writing on her person (inscribing a question on her arm for later clarification) and earlier, by Harriet the Spy, who records all her questions in a notebook. Spunky delightful girls.

Clementine on losing her cat:

"I don't want to talk about Friday because there was so much crying. I did not know one person could hold that much water. That's all I am going to say about that.
Clementine and Mitchell are the best. This is the great thing about Mitchell. Whenever I ask him to do something, he says, "Sure!" even if it's something he could get in trouble for. If I ever want a boyfriend -- which I will not -- he will say "Sure!" to anything I suggest.
I thought this book is a fantastic novel for kids and groun-ups espesaily

Third-grader Clementine is super-excited because she's been chosen as Friend of the Week in her class. She gets to collect milk money, be the line leader, and present her life story to the class. At the end of the week, she'll get a booklet in which her classmates write nice things about her. Clementine decides that she should do favors for people (like giving them "tattoos" and helping them decorate their bikes for the bike rally) so that her classmates will be inspired to write lots of nice co ...more
Clementine is thrilled that she has been chosen as the "Friend of the Week" in her class. This means that she gets to do things like be line-leader and collect the milk money. It also means that her classmates will create a book all about what they like about her. Clementine is determined that her book will be filled with notes about how amazing she is, and she has a plan to make her classmates love her. When her kitten, Moisturizer, goes missing, though, she forgets all about this plan and can ...more
Clementine’s name was drawn for Friend of the Week during class at school. She is very excited about this and is determined for her book to be filled with good compliments from her friends. So, she begins to compliment them and give them presents, hoping this will make them all feel that she is a really nice friend. However, when promising to help all her classmates decorate their bikes for the bike rally, Clementine is unable to follow through because of her lost kitten. Her outside world comes ...more

"Clementine, Friend of the Week" is about a third grade girl, named Clementine, who is going to be friend of the week. Her best friend Margaret got friend of the week when she was in third grade. When Margaret sees Clementine handling her friend of the week booklet, she gets so mad at Clementine and they never want to speak to each other again, even though Clementine never opened the book. She just wanted to take the tape off of it that Margaret's brother had stuck on it. One day, Clementine fin ...more
Clementine, Friend of the Week is a very cute story about a little girl by Sara Pennypacker. Clementine was picked to be friend of the week in her third grade class! She got to be line leader, collect lunch money, tell the class her life story, and she received a friend of the week book with compliments from all her classmates. Her older, somewhat rude of a friend Margaret is in fourth grade, and she was friend of the week, too when she was in third grade. Margaret is good at everything, so Clem ...more
Clementine is a character ... and I mean that in the funniest and best sense of the word. Book one Clementine will always be my most favorite (this is book four) but that doesn't mean this one wasn't cute.

"Here is how you look holy: First--everyone knows this part--fold your hands like a steeple. Then roll your eyes up as far as they will go, cross them slightly, and let your lids flutter a little bit. Finally, imagine yourself doing something extra kind, like giving away your ice-cream cone to
I read two other books of this series in the second grade, the whole class read it together. So I bought this book the same year, but never got around to reading it. Fast forward 4 years, I was looking around in our garage and I found this book, I picked it up and finished it the same day. This was a fun book to read, it was neither too short or too long. Great book.

Review: Books about friendship are on the top of my list when to children's books, this one caught my attention by the cover. By listening to her friend, is Clementine doing all the right things? I would recommend this book to kids who suffer socially and let their friends run their life for them.

Summary: Clementine gets chosen as friend of the week, which means being the line leader and getting the milk and feeding the class fish. All the things that kids would want to be in charge of she gets

This is a chapter book about a little girl named Clementine. It's her turn to become friend of the week at school. That week happens to be a very hectic week... as she is trying to do good deeds so everyone will have something nice to write about her in her booklet, her 'best friend' becomes mad at her and her beloved pet cat gets lost.

Since this is a chapter book I would recommend it to upper elementary students. They may find some sort of connection with Clementine.

If I had to bring this into
Clementine is a 3rd grader and life with her as a parent would definitely be trying. As a person looking from the outside looking in, Clementine is wonderful! Clementine is witty, quick-thinking, and innovative. This book is a children's book, but I believe all ages would love to read this. I love Clementine's family, the artwork by Marla Frazee, and the humorous tales of Clementine's life.
There are very tender moments in this book and at these times her family shines and her friends come throug

Another hit in the Clementine series! Clemetine's ecstatic when she's chosen to be Friend of the Week in her third-grade classroom! She gets to lead the Pledge of Allegiance, tell the class her autobiography, and, best of all, she'll get a Friend of the Week booklet with compliments from all her classmates at the end of the week. When Margaret tells her that she ought to be giving compliments and presents to her classmates to make sure they write nice things about her, Clementine has a few ideas ...more
I love this kid. I wish my kids had been even a bit like her, although I would have pulled my hair out if they had. Brilliant for reading aloud, with just enough of a mix of serious and funny to keep an 8 year old's attention.
This book was very funny! I love how her dad says: 'friend of the weak? Can't you be friend of the strong too?' This wasn't one if my faves, but I still liked it very much.
This one started out strong, and I enjoyed it. However, I just didn't love it as much as the others. The ending seemed a bit contrived -- reminded me a lot of Knuffle Bunny Too, actually.
I loved this funny little girl who calls her brother veggie names and named her cat moisturizer. definitely have to read more of these with my girls.
The beginning wasn't as great as the others, BUT it definitely came up to full Clementine enjoyment by the middle and I just loved the ending!

Clementine is the most adorable character I've ever met. Her everyday adventures and misadventures in this latest offering are delightful. In this volume, she has been picked as Friend of the Week. After learning from the ever-wise older Margaret how important it is to get special messages, Clementine goes over the top in her schemes to get adulation. But in her desire to be the best friend ever, something goes awry, and Clementine faces double failure. Sarah Pennypacker knows how to write kid w ...more
Pennypacker continues to deliver sweet, appealing stories about the red-headed everygirl Clementine. There is a certain element of 2/3/4th grade kids who just eat this series up, and I love the fact that they're not coming out so quickly that their quality is compromised. This time around, we follow Clementine through the experience of being "friend of the week" in class, and the tragedy of her lost kitten. Adults who have one of those quirky kids who can't quite conform should give Clementine a ...more
This book is quite fun to read. One really feels as if you are peering into the mind of a third grader. She is appropriately worried about things that one expects a third grader to be worried about. And she tries to control and influence her world in exactly that way to. Several bits of the book are laugh out loud funny, and several are quite sad and worrying. The book, and the Clementine series in general, has a very pure and simple focus. Everyday things are given a gripping and compelling emo ...more
