JF Pennypacker    •    Humor

Jacket.aspxClementine is a creative, energetic young girl.  She loves to draw, she is allergic to sitting still, and despite having the best intentions she always seem to get into trouble.  She gets into a world of trouble when she ‘helps’ her best friend cut glue out of her hair and ends up cutting her long hair completely off.

This book is very similar in style to Judy Moody and Junie B. Jones, however Clementine has a charm all her own.  The book is perhaps a bit slower at the start than Judy Moody; however, readers who persevere will be rewarded with a delightful tale.  Like Judy Moody and Junie B. Jones, Clementine is likely to appeal to female readers; however, all readers who enjoy funny stories, and those who have previously enjoyed books like Alvin Ho are strongly encouraged to try Clementine!
