Clementine is always getting in trouble at school for not paying attention. The problem is she is paying attention, just not to the things her teacher wants her to. Clementine is also always thinking of ways to make things better. It's too bad that the adults in her life don't understand her ideas. So Clementine spends a lot of time in the principal's office. Teacher's send notes home. Neighbour's whisper about her being the difficult child. Still, can this irrepressible little girl, save the day in the end.

This is a wonderful story about an ADHD, artistic young girl who seems to have a talent for finding trouble. The humour in this book is twinned with actual pathos, leaving the reader with alternating tears and smiles. This is a sweet, book that is full of truth and joy.

Get this.

This is a delightful book for children in grades 2-6. Clementine is an, intelligent, entertaining little girl. My 9-year-old son and I laughed out loud while reading this one. Don't forget the rest of the series.
