Clarice Bean Spells Trouble

Written by Lauren Child

Part of the Clarice Bean Series

Clarice Bean Spells Trouble Synopsis

Clarice Bean is back and starring in her second novel! By Children's Laureate Lauren Child. There are so many things in life you can't explain. Like why isn't YOU spelt U? Why isn't WHY spelt Y? And why can just opening your mouth get you into some very BIG trouble? Clarice Bean is in non-stop trouble these days - almost as much as Karl Wrenbury, and he is the naughtiest boy in school. Clarice just wants to star in the school play and impress Mrs Wilberton in the spelling bee, but things aren't quite going to plan . . . 'Witty and charming. We can't get enough of Clarice Bean.' - Independent Lauren Child is a Kate Greenaway Medal winner and the creator of the bestselling Charlie & Lola series.

Clarice Bean Spells Trouble Press Reviews

What Bridget Jones is to thirtysomethings, Clarice Bean is to pre-teens: full of funny one-liners, doing her best to overcome her shortcomings, prone to embarrassing mistakes and good at heart ... The story, like Child's doodles, is witty and charming and crams a lot of meaning into apparent simplicity ... We can't get enough of Clarice Bean. * Sunday Times * I love this book. It really is great - in fact, the Clarice Bean books are probably the best books I've ever read!! -- Guardian children's books young reviewer * Guardian.com * Oodles of comic charm * Evening Standard * We can't get enough Clarice Bean * The Sunday Times *
