Utterly Me, Clarice Bean

(3 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Part of the Clarice Bean series

Publisher: Orchard Books

Clarice Bean finds family life exhausting and exasperating, and school is no better; particularly when the teacher, Mrs Wilburton, sets an 'utterly dreary' book project.

Until Clarice realises that a prize is on offer and, together with her best friend, Betty Moody, sets out to win it, armed with a copy of The Ruby Redford Collection, a series of detective stories featuring an 11-year-old detective...

Utterly charming, delightful and hilarious, Clarice is an upfront heroine with immense appeal for both children and adults. Quirky black-and-white drawings in Lauren Child's inimitable style perfectly complement the text.
