UTTERLY ME, CLARICE BEAN
Boston : Candlewick Press,
IL 3-6, RL 5.0
can't concentrate in school (apparently a common housefly has got more
ability to apply itself) and she's really only interested in reading about
her favorite girl detective, Ruby Redfort. Ruby is fabulously rich
and really a secret agent, and Clarice starts to find her family of six
anything but adventurous by comparison. So when her teacher announces
a book project with a prize, Clarice thinks she finally has the opportunity
to show her teacher, parents, and schoolmates how focused and exciting
she can really be. But some pretty funny things happen on the way
to the book project... Rich with the author's celebrated illustrations
and a layout that's anything but traditional, this book is fun from the
word go. Utterly Me, Clarice Bean with a is a lough-out-loud,
read passages to your friends, parents, siblings, anyone-you-can-grab-off-the-street
kind of book. Hey with a dog named Cement that buries slippers in
the back yard, how can you go wrong? (New
