The Lovereading4Kids comment

Moving beyond her family but using all her witty powers of observation, Clarice Bean fills her first novel with an account of her life outside home and especially inside school. She describes her teacher and classmates, including her UTTERLY best friend Betty Moody. How Clarice and Betty moody set about trying to win the prize for the best book project is hilarious. Why not check out Lauren’s author page on Lovereading4kids. Enjoy this story even more with the accompanying audio CD.


Utterly Me, Clarice Bean (audio CD) by Lauren Child

Lauren Child's best-selling first novel, introducing Clarice Bean to a whole new audience. The sparkling text revisits Clarice's wacky family with humour and verve, and introduces Ruby Redfort, ace girl detective and star of Clarice's favourite books. Ruby is always going on exciting adventures, but all Clarice gets to do is go to the local shop on her own! So she and her best friend, Betty Moody, decide to do their school project on the Ruby Redfort books, and suddenly they start finding mysteries everywhere.

Why are all the coats on the wrong hooks at school and where has grandad disappeared to? Read by Claire Skinner, with wit, sensitivity and passion.
