The Lovereading4Kids comment

An utterly special 10th anniversary edition beautifully designed in hardback with a full colour cloth binding of the very first Clarice Bean novel complete with stunning slipcase. A package to truly treasure.

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 to see what other Clarice Bean titles there are, both picture books for the 3+ year old and Lauren’s novels featuring Clarice for 7+ year olds.

Synopsis

Utterly Me, Clarice Bean by

Utterly Me, the very first Clarice Bean novel by Lauren Child, is ten years old. To celebrate, Orchard Books have created this beautifully-produced gift edition with a slipcase. The linen-bound hardback book contains never-seen-before sketches and a note from the author. This utterly special edition is the perfect gift for Clarice Bean fans young and old. 'An utterly fantastic book.' The Sunday Times 'Feisty and free-wheeling. Hilarious and irresistible.' The Financial Times 'Packed with life and fun and fabulous to look at.' The Bookseller

Reviews

Fans of Child's irrepressible, impulsive picture-book heroine--as well as rids who have not yet had the pleasure of making her acquaintance--will devour her first chapter-book adventure.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
