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.

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.

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.

Great book for 1st-3rd graders!

My 7 year old daughter has listened to all the Clementine stories over and over again! I've listened to a lot of them with her and have always found them to be entertaing and appropriate for young children. The narrator is great and the recording is high quality...definitely a worthwhile purchase!
