I’m so sad that this is the last book in the series! I love Clementine, she’s such a delightful character with all her idiosyncrasies. Clementine is reluctant to say goodbye to her third grade teacher and so avoids it like the plague. At the same time she juggles her anger at her father, her confusion with her mother’s odd ‘nesting’ behavior, and her friend, Margaret’s mother’s wedding plans. Clementine is her usual charming self coming up with words like astoundishing to express herself and determined to not speak to her father until he agrees to stop eating meat. She’s busy making a gift for Margaret’s soon-to-be stepfather, drawing pictures of sad animals for her father, and coming up with names for her coming new sibling. I absolutely adore the relationships that Clementine has with her friends and family. They are far from perfect but it’s clear that they love each other despite disagreements and flaws. The interactions between Clementine and her parents are especially endearing and her calling her brother by different vegetable names made me snicker. It’s clear that despite her difficulties, Clementine will be just fine with her own enthusiastic spirit and her loving family to help her along the way. Marla Frazee’s wonderful illustrations once again give additional life to Clementine’s feelings and antics. This series is everything that contemporary middle grade literature should be. Check it out!
From School Library Journal Gr 2–4—Third grade is ending and Clementine feels anxious as the school year comes to a close. She does not like saying goodbye, and she’s especially not ready to bid farewell to Mr. D’Matz. She’s also worried about her mother’s nutty “nesting” behavior as the new baby’s birth approaches, and she’s so mad at her dad she isn’t speaking to him. Everything wraps up neatly by the end, though, and Clementine is finally ready to face the summer and embrace the unknowns of fourth grade. Clementine is just as fresh and funny in this seventh and final title in the series as she was in the first book. It’s sure to be popular for readers already familiar with Clementine and will doubtlessly engender a new set of fans to read each of the books about this entertaining character. VERDICT This last title in the popular and laugh-out-loud chapter book series is a must-have for library collections.—Gaye Hinchliff, King County Library System, WA –This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
Completely Clementine (A Clementine Book) Paperback – March 1, 2016 by Sara Pennypacker (Author) Review
7/8 yr old daughter LOVES the Clementine series. She states they’re about a troublemaking girl who learns her lesson. She states the books are funny and entertaining, which draw her in to the point she doesn’t want to put the "iPad (through kindle)" down. We download the "Kindle" version down through Safari from the amazon site. Once purchased, we update kindle (app) on her iPad and our cell phones for her to read whetever we are. -Read Reviews-
