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
    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Love this character!"

    As my daughter is now 31, and I haven't had kids in my life recently, I had not been introduced to Clementine previously. She is one of the best female characters in children's books I've read (noting my limits in this genre)! I bought this on sale b/c I liked the sound of the sample, and I thoroughly enjoyed the listen.

    To me, Clementine seems like a great parallel, for younger readers, to Alan Bradley's Flavia De Luce --- a series I HIGHLY recommend to anyone who loves mysteries, appreciates well fleshed-out female leads, and has a sense of humor (anyone from ~ age 9 to adult). Clementine is lovely because she is an artist AND is also good at math, she is fiercely loyal to her friends AND can be jealous of them simultaneously, etc., etc. It's great to see such a complex little female character for young readers. The narration was spot-on for me. Very enjoyable find!
