    Humorous, Fresh, and Unique!

    Clementine, Friend of the Week (2010) Sara Pennypacker and pictures by Marla Frazee Aesthetic readers will enjoy this realistic fiction chapter book by Sara Pennypacker because of the expert characterization and first-person point of view portrayed in Ms. Pennypacker's writing style. We are immediately immersed in the deep and comical thoughts of Clementine, a third grade girl who is chosen to be the Friend of the Week at school. This means she gets to feed the class fish, be first in line, assist the teacher, and, best of all, receive a booklet filled with all of Clementine's "valuableness", as her best friend Margaret states. A character foil unfolds between Margaret, who is prim, proper, organized, and always the best at everything, and Clementine, who is directly opposite of Margaret. Other secondary characters include Clementine's mom, dad, and brother. The reader will enjoy learning about Clementine's family and how she interacts with them. Some humorous, reoccurring details are the names Clementine gives to her younger brother. She thinks that since she got a food-related name, he should too. So she just replaces his name with the name of a vegetable like Turnip, Broccoli, Corn Kernel, and Pea Pod! The setting of this story is school, mainly Clementine's classroom and the playground, and Clementine's apartment. This story takes place during the week that Clementine gets to be "Friend of the Week". Ms. Pennypacker's writing style includes an array of common, melodic, rich, and emotional words. Even fun words like "valuableness" that a third or fourth grader would actually say. Clementine decides to do things for her classmates so that they will "write great stuff" about her in her booklet. When Clementine's kitten, Moisturizer, is lost, promises that were made are broken and bonds that were broken are then repaired. Through this unique and humorous experience with Clementine, Margaret, their freinds and family, we learn that friendship is deeper than each other's annoying habits or will to be the best at everything. Friendship is when you find "the best friend a person could ever have," as Clementine describes it.
