Move over, Ramona, Junie B. Jones, and Gooney Bird Green! Clementine is here! Clementine, by Sarah Pennypacker, brings us into this 8 year old’s life, where she joins her father in fighting off pigeons, and “fixes” her friend’s hair by first cutting most of it off, and then coloring it using indelible pens (including little “squigglies” on her forehead for bangs). This is the first book of a new series sure to find popularity among young and older readers alike.
