Clementine is having a rough week. It all starts when she helps her friend Margaret with her hair. Even though she is helping, she ends up in trouble with Margaret’s mother, the principal, and eventually Margaret herself. Everyone is always sending Clementine to the principal’s office and telling her to “pay attention,” when she notices things that no one else does. Maybe if she can find a solution to The Great Pigeon War and clean her room and do everything an easy child would do, she wouldn’t be in so much trouble all the time.
Clementine is the modern day Ramona. She has a good heart but always ends up in trouble. She is funny, quirky, and endearing. Highly recommended for anyone in second through fourth grades.
