The Lovereading4Kids comment

Feisty Clarice Bean is back for new adventures. A bit older and a bit wiser, she is also thinking about all the things that she should be worrying about.

Everyone will recognise Clarice’s anxieties and enjoy her resolution of them.


Clarice Bean, Don't Look Now by Lauren Child

There seems to be an awful lot in Clarice's life to worry about and when she finds herself unable to sleep at night, she follows Ruby Redfort's advice and devises a Worst Worries list. But Clarice soon realises that your worst worry is the worry you haven't even thought to worry about. And, as Clarice's world dissolves into chaos and confusion - falling down house, arguing parents, and another term with Mrs Wilberton - she realises just how true this is...
