Fun stories about feisty Clementine who just can't seem to keep out of trouble! It’s not that she means to be bad; it is just that everything she does seems to go a little bit wrong…For example, she's only trying to help when she cuts of Margaret's hair and she can't really help not paying attention in class either. Can Clementine improve? And does she want to?

Synopsis

Clementine by Sara Pennypacker

This feisty, fun series from Pennypacker ensures Clementine will become a classic and well-loved character. Clementine seems to be constantly in trouble...Firstly, for cutting off Margaret's hair - don't they know she was just trying to help? Secondly, for not paying attention in class - just because she's paying attention to something other than maths, doesn't mean she's not paying attention! And thirdly, for the Black Hole, which is her bedroom - it's not like she means to lose things there, that's just the nature of the Black Hole! Perhaps it's time for Clementine to change...or perhaps not!
