Laugh out loud hilarious
Reviewed in the United States on December 22, 2017
My then seven-year-old niece ran up to me one day and asked in an urgent tone if I had read Clementine. Confused and thinking of the fruit, I hesitatingly said, “No?” She ran off and returned seconds later, thrusting the book into my hands. She insisted I read it. I’m so glad I did!
Clementine is laugh out loud hilarious! I read the whole series within a week or so. It’s Junie B. Jones-ish, but on a higher reading level with a little more complex issues.
Now I read the first in the series with my fourth graders, and many of the kids will continue the series on their own.
Sometimes when the kids are reading to themselves, I’ll hear someone laugh out loud. I will glance over and often see that they are reading Clementine, and I will think back to that day my niece insisted I read this delightful book.
