What the Critics Say

  • Audie Award Winner, Children's Titles - Ages 8 - 11, 2008

"A sweet family life...serves as the foundation for the story, which charts a tough week for Clementine, involving badly cut (and marker-dyed) hair, trouble with the principal, and a spat with a best friend." (Child magazine)
"Fans of Judy Moody will welcome this portrait of another funny, independent third-grader." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Outstanding!"

    This was one of the best children's books I've read in a long time. My daughters (ages 5 and 7) love the creative heroine. And this mom loved the creativity of the author! Can't wait for more.

    I'm a mom. I have drama in my life. I don't want books with the F-bomb, nor graphic violence. I read for fun and to bring my family together. I read for reducing stress levels. We have never had a television in our home and our children are now mid twenties to 19. We listen together and look for belly-wrenching laughter. So what is it like to live without a TV? Awesomely educational and inspirational. Each new book is a marvel.

    Story
    "Clementine is my kind of kid"
    If you could sum up Clementine in three words, what would they be?

    Spunky, ingenious, lovable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narration makes Clementine pop out of the audio book and become part of the family. Clementine is so cute! It reminds me of myself and my children. A joyful listen, full of giggles


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Ok, fine. (You'll understand when you listen)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I cleaned house, made dinner, knitted and giggled the whole while. So did my family. Very cute.

    Story
    "One credit for a 1.5 hr book!?"

    My daughter loved this story and wants me to buy her more Clementine stories. Normally, I'd have given a children’s book my kids really like 5 stars. But the Clementine series of audio books are outrageously pricey.

    To purchase the 13.5-hour Clementine series, as my daughter would like, I’d have to spend 7 credits or $62.84 to purchase 7 audio books that average less than 2 hours in length. That’s nuts.

    For comparison, I purchased the entire 19-hour Ramona Quimby series for a single credit. My daughter also loved those books and I liked them better.

    Story
    "OK, fine. It was excellent."

    A wonderful view of the world from the eyes of a precocious 8 year old child. And a story for adults about psychological discovery which is just as good.

    I read this as an adult who doesn't have kids. And as an adult, it was eye opening to see the psychological subtext, cause and effect, of how Clementine's acting out and fear of abandonment is used to mask certain emotions, which I won't mention because of spoilers.

    Good children's books are interesting in that they're able to hide a whole story of subtleties which only an adult could pick up, while still presenting a story that not only would a child enjoy, but learn from. This book does this very well.

    "My review of the book "Clementine""

    I really like this book. Clementine is a very crazy child with a mind-blowoing bunch of ideas. Even though she may not always be amazing at everything, she can really help kids to learn how to deal with the difficulties of life.

    "ENDEARING"

    Short, sweet, cute. Endearing character for elementary/middle school kids. Amusing antics of an 8 year old third grader. Not quite sure how I ended up with the audiobook, but I sat to give it a listen. What's 90 minutes, I didn't regret.

    "Very funny!"

    I just discovered Audible and got Clementine because it was a deal of the week. Put it in the car for my 3.5 years old and my 5.5 years old. I was afraid they would loose attention after 10mn, but they loved it. We're on our 3rd listening in 4 days! The minute we get in the car, they want Clementine! Thankfully it is quite witty and the reader is very good, so it doesn't get old even for me.
