Clarice Bean, Don't Look Now

Lauren Child

Don't look now, but Lauren Child has outdone herself with a Clarice Bean novel that is the funniest and most poignant yet (ages 8-11).

It's the worry you hadn't even thought to worry about that should worry you the most. At least that's how it looks to Clarice Bean, who has been writing her worries in a notebook -- things like Worry no. 1: infinity, or Worry no. 3: change. And now that her worst never-imagined worry has happened -- her utterly best friend is moving away forever -- Clarice doesn't even care about her tickets to the Ruby Redfort, girl detective, movie premiere. That is, unless something happens to change things again. . . . Lauren Child's trademark wit combines with spot-on insight in this hugely engaging story about childhood worries, unwanted changes, and finding friendships in the most surprising places.

Praise for this book

Told in Child's familiar stream-of-consciousness style and punctuated with creative vocabulary...Clarice is quickly stepping out from behind the shadow of other witty characters.
