The Lovereading4Kids comment
The irresistible Clarice Bean burst onto the world in a picture book which has now been reissued as a special 15 birthday edition. Through words and picture she introduces her wonderfully characterised family capturing their foibles and kindly recognising the different stresses and strains they are under. Favourites include her older brother Kurt who, his Mum says, is “in the dark tunnel of adolescence” which means he has to be left alone to do what he likes as much as possible, grandfather who spends a lot of time asleep in a chair with the cat on his head and Mum who is always trying to find some peace and quiet in which to be calm. Clarice is a charmingly feisty character herself as well as an excellent narrator on her own life. This multi award-winning, bestselling picture book is a classic tale of family life that will have you laughing out loud.
Clarice Bean, That's Me by Lauren Child
This book is about me, Clarice Bean. It's a very funny book and all of the pages have pictures, mostly of me. There are some annoying bits when my little brother barges in on pages 8 and 9, so you might want to miss them out ... All Clarice Bean wants is a bit of peace and quiet. But that can be hard to find in a house where your little brother is being utterly annoying, your big brother is in the dark tunnel of adolescence and your granddad's pouring soup on his cornflakes. Clarice introduces us to her life and family in the original book that launched the hugely successful, critically-acclaimed Clarice Bean series.
