Overview

Clementine's having a nervous breakdown. The FAMILY MEETING! sign is up in her house, and she just knows she's in trouble for something. Has she been too mean to her little brother? Too sloppy? Eating too much junk food? Try as she might to find out what's on the agenda, her parents won't reveal anything before the meeting. As far as Clementine is concerned, the agenda should be something like: "We're getting a gorilla." But no, it's something entirely different. "We're talking about a new baby," says her father. "A brother or sister for you two. What do you think about that?" NO THANKS! is what Clementine thinks. After all, four is the perfect number for a family. There are four sides to a table, not five. Will Clementine learn to make room for one more?

Readers will chuckle at Clementine's unique perspective on the age-old issue of sibling rivalry.

    Highly Recommended-Fun and quirky Clementine is back!

    I love Sara Pennypackers's funny and quirky character Clementine! These books always make me laugh and they are perfect as a family read or for that beginning reader just coming out of their first chapter books. In Pennypacker's new book, Clementine and the Family Meeting, Clementine finds herself facing the prospect of a new brother or sister and not quite sure how to handle it. With the help of a rat named Eighteen and her new grown up tool belt, Clementine comes to terms with having a new baby in the family although she does think it's only fair that this baby have a food name too, perhaps Mushroom Soup.
    Pennypacker takes a fun look at a subject that many kids find themselves in. I enjoy all the characters in this series and am still wondering what Clementine's brother's real name is. This book is perfect for children who will become big brothers or sisters and for those who just enjoy a good laugh. I love the fact that Clementine finds herself in unique situations yet is by no means a brat. This series is one of my favorite book recommends for that 6-10 year age range. I will be more than happy to hand sell this one and look forward to the seeing the art work in the finished version.
