Clementine is a clever and quirky character who finds her special talent just in time for the fourth and fifth grade talent show. Her role in the "Talent-Palooza, Night of the Stars" echos her own personally unique way of looking at life. I would confidently recommend the series for first and second grade students. While anyone might enjoy this whimsical read, girls would likely relate more closely with Clementine. In many ways, Clementine is reminiscent of Barbara Parks, "Junie B." Yet I appreciate that Sara Pennypacker has made a point to teach her young readers a lesson too: everyone has talent, it just takes a while to find it sometimes.

My daughter loves these books. It is every bit as funny as Junie B. but with a cleaner mouth.

This was an adorable book that would be a great read aloud for grades up to third grade, possibly fourth. The character of Clementine is unique and quirky and many children could relate to the way she feels throughout thsi story. The ending came full circle for Clementine. The talents of the other students were very accurate as to what third and fourth graders would probably want to display in a talent show. There waas not anything that I disliked about this book, I thought it was perfect for elementary school children.

'The Talented Clementine By: Sara Pennypacker-Book Review' Sara Pennypacker 'Clementine, Stuart¿s Cape' has successfully followed up her first Clementine installment with another just as clever and just as fun. Clementine is surprised when she is told that her class will participate in a talent show. Clementine panics at the thought because she knows she does not have a talent, even after earnestly trying to discover other talents that she did not possess. Once she comes to the heartbreaking conclusion that she is useless in that department, Clementine learns she has a surprising hidden talent that saves the show. One thing that will interest readers is Clementine herself. She is messy and does not like to do a lot of work. Dressing fashionably is not in her everyday vocabulary. She is comfortable in mix-match outfits and enjoys being herself. The elementary student realizes that being herself and doing what she always does helps her out at the end to be more involved in the talent show. Readers will absolutely fall in love with this little spit fire of a girl. She is her own person. Having a loving, caring family encourages Clementine to be responsible, and empathetic, and to believe in her talents. I would read The Talented Clementine book over and over again. I give this book two thumbs up.
