From Booklist

K-Gr. 2. Pigtailed Clementine Sweet is misnamed. She's the most ornery, pugnacious girl in Texas Hill Country. It wasn't always thus. At a family reunion, relatives forget her birthday and her name, prompting her to yell, "I'm Clementine Sweet! I'm gonna stomp your feet." This becomes both her catchphrase and her chosen method of acting up. When people stop at her family's cafe, she is ready to stomp them if they don't call her by her proper name. But after she learns the two-step and stomps a tornado, Clementine gets the recognition she craves and settles down to be the town darlin'. Whether everyone will find her adorable is another question. Kids will love mimicking her signature line, but adults are likely to be less appreciative. Still, this has the allure of a tall tale, and Wohnoutka's boisterous, oversize artwork has a comic look, especially when he uses unusual perspectives (with feet often in the forefront). Children looking for a heroine who takes matters into her own hands--make that feet, too--will find her here. Ilene Cooper

Format: Hardcover
This is a great book that is fun to read aloud (using your best Texan drawl) with fun details for kids to point out while reading it. We love the cowboy and cowgirl outfits and boots too - Wohnoutka really paid attention to them in his illustrations. My kids love and recommend this book!

I first saw this book at my local library. My daughter checked it out so much I had to find it for her book collection at home. We enjoy reading this book a lot. It is fun and one can really get into character when reading it.
