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.
