Good stories, too expensive though

I liked books 2 through 7 in the Clementine series more than the first one. I have to admit, they are pretty good. My daughter loved them and I eventually warmed up to them.

What I did not warm to was the price. Each book is about two hours long, but they are priced the same as much longer books. That doesn’t seem fair.

If they were sold in bundles of 3 or maybe even 2 stories I would be good with that. But at one credit per book, I will return them, get my credits back, and get longer books for my kids. Maybe if this series goes on sale, I’ll re-buy them then.

We love the characters. Wish the story was longer.

My boys would stay up all night listening to every second if I let them. So a Clementine book only lasts a few nights.

Love it!

If you could sum up The Talented Clementine in three words, what would they be?

Clementine is everything an adult wishes could happen when they were kids. Clementine is brilliant, caring, lovable, ingenious and a spunky child.

For reasons I do not understand, some of these books are listed as Sarah Pennypacker and others are Sara Pennypacker. Make sure you see all 6 books when you search for Clementine. While not exactly critical, it is helpful to listen in order. First is Clementine, second is The Talented Clementine, 3rd - Clementine's Letter, 4th - Friend of the Week, 5th - Family Meeting, 6th - Spring Trip.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Talented Clementine?

I suspect that after listening to these books you will find yourself saying "Ok. Fine." or, "Let me tell you." Clementine is just adorable. It will remind you of kids who beg to go to the movies and you reply "No. It is a school night," and the child responds "But we don't go to school at night."

Which character – as performed by Jessica Almasy – was your favorite?

Jessica Almasy IS Clementine.
