Book Review: Clarice Bean, Utterly Me by Lauren Child - Reviewed by Romi Foster (25 Nov 2011)
The Very first of the Clarice Bean novels. It was followed over the years by two more, Clairce Bean's Spelling Trouble and Clarice Bean don't look now, and in each book Clarice is just as festy, just as ripping a character, just as crazy and full of daily truths, words we want to use after she has and a family that is so abnormally fun, hectic, stressed out and cool that we all feel a great love for them.
Clarice is older here, than in the picture books where she first started off, and she is ready to welcome you into her world. Go!
