Overview

Now in paperback! Clarice Bean needs a science project or she's in BIG trouble. Her brother Kurt just wants to save the planet. And now they're both up a tree.

"Sometimes I think gravity is a pity," says Clarice Bean, who is learning about planet Earth in school. For a project on the environment, her brain leaps to the holes in the sky from her sister’s hairspray and the nature safari in her brother’s bedroom. But when a big neighborhood tree is about to be chopped to pieces, she has no choice but to join her quirky family in its branches and save the day.

Meet the Author

Lauren Child attended art school and did "lots of other things" before writing CLARICE BEAN, THAT'S ME. She designed ceramics for children, worked as an artist's assistant, and created lampshades for her own company. About the inspiration for this book—her first for Candlewick Press—she says, "I grew up with an older sister who read a lot and a younger sister who I had to share a room with whenever we had visitors (which was a lot, and my sister was very untidy, and guess who had to clean up the mess.)"
