One of the most delightful and quirky characters of modern fiction. Clarice Bean’s views on her family, school, her friends and much more are all wittily described in the frankly written stories she tells about herself. Clarice is defined by her big family, “I’m not an only child, but sometimes I wish I was. My family is six people, which is sometimes too many.” These stories about Clarice brilliantly capture the small but seemingly hugely important ups and downs of childhood. Beautifully produced and fully illustrated in black and white, each book is a treat and gathered together in an attractive slipcase they make a perfect present.
In Utterly Me, Clarice Bean, when mysterious things start to happen, Clarice Bean finds it hard to concentrate ...especially as her best friend, Betty Moody, is nowhere to be seen. In Clarice Bean Spells Trouble, Clarice Bean might just be able to get out of a dreaded spelling bee by landing a starring role in the school musical. But when the naughtiest boy in class has a family problem, she does something utterly unexpected. In Clarice Bean, Don't Look Now, Clarice Bean has a list of worries, such as Worry No. 9: largish spiders. But lately, she's been more concerned with Worry No. 3: change, and how it sometimes comes along when you least expect it.
