Description - Clarice Bean, Utterly Me by Lauren Child

A new 20th anniversary edition of the utterly classic Clarice Bean, Utterly Me, the very first novel by bestselling Children's Laureate, Lauren Child.

Clarice Bean loves reading the adventures of Ruby Redfort, ace girl detective and secret undercover agent. Ruby is always going on exciting missions, but the most Clarice gets to do is go to the local shop on her own . . .

But when Clarice and her best friend, Betty Moody, decide to do their school project on the Ruby Redfort books, they suddenly start finding mysteries everywhere. Like why are all the coats on the wrong hooks at school? Where has Granddad disappeared to? And just what is going on in the garden shed?

'An utterly fantastic book.'

Book Review: Clarice Bean, Utterly Me by Lauren Child - Reviewed by (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!
