Clementine (Sara Pennypacker)

Clementine is hilarious. She is sassy and silly and matter of fact and messy and impulsive. I am looking forward to reading book 1 to my class and then turning them loose on the rest of the series.

Warning: never put Clementine, June B Jones, Marty McGuire, Ivy and Bean or Pippi Longstocking in the same room. They are all cut from the same cloth! 

Which makes me ask: what is with all these series of spunky (naughty?) tom-boy girls? 

Goodreads summary: 

Clementine is having not so good of a week.

-On Monday she's sent to the principal’s office for cutting off Margaret’s hair.
- Tuesday, Margaret's mother is mad at her. 
- Wednesday, she's sent to the principal... again. 
- Thursday, Margaret stops speaking to her. 
- Friday starts with yucky eggs and gets worse. 
- And by Saturday, even her mother is mad at her.

Okay, fine. Clementine is having a DISASTROUS week.
