Format: Paperback
If you're wondering about a gift for a favorite niece, granddaughter or daughter, here 'tis. Everyone's favorite mischievous miss now makes an appearance in a boxed set that holds Clarice Bean Spells Trouble; Utterly Me, Clarice Bean; a Clarice Bean notebook with plenty of pages for jotting thoughts, reminders, and other important data, plus a cherry red Clarice Bean pencil.

The 5 ˝" by 7 ˝" notebook has both blank and graph pages, each with a Clarice profundity at the bottom. We find such gems as "Sometimes things are easier if you don't say what you think." and "Sometimes it is a help to snap a pencil if you are feeling utterly stressed."

Clarice Bean Spells Trouble is, of course, the story of Clarice's desperate attempts to be in the school play. Getting into trouble is what Clarice seems to do best, almost as well as Karl Wrenbury, the naughtiest boy in school. A spelling bee is almost her downfall yet she soldiers on.

Utterly Me, Clarice Bean finds Clarice feeling deserted when her best friend, Betty, suddenly disappears. Then, of all things, she's paired with Karl for a class project. However, when a winner's trophy turns up missing and Karl is accused of taking it Clarice quickly emulates her favorite girl detective Ruby Redfort and gets to the bottom of things.

Each book is illustrated with the off the wall illustrations that we associate with Clarice as well as the slanting script.

A sure winner for young readers!

I am in love with Clarice Bean - author Child is an exceptional storyteller. I enjoyed reading this text (I am a teacher/researcher working collaboratively with a second grade teacher) and we shared it with them - which they loved. It has HUMOUR coupled with real life experiences children can surely identify with. I also rec. this text for preservice and inservice teachers as they think about the kind of educators they want to be - Mrs. Wilberton of this story is a scream - she's so well written - but she's also probably the teacher we had as kids - so we can laugh because we identify but I urge beginning teachers to stray from becoming a Wilberton.

In this "exceptionordinarily" good gift box, young girls will be utterly delighted to find two Clarice Bean books, a Clarice Bean journal, and a Clarice Bean pencil.

The two books, UTTERLY ME, CLARICE BEAN (4.5-Balloons) and CLARICE BEAN SPELLS TROUBLE (5-Balloons) are reviewed separately.

This is a great gift choice for girls age 8-11.

My daughter (age 7) had really enjoyed Charlie and Lola, so we were excited to see a series for an older child. Clarice Bean is a great character and her home and school environments are those to which most elementary school girls can relate. The addition of a notebook and pencil were just icing on the cake for my child.
