Clarice Bean just wants to be alone, but finding some time and a place to be alone in her house is a challenge. Clarice lives with her mother and father, shares a room with her younger brother and has an older brother and sisters too. On top of that, her grandfather lives with the family. But when living stacked on top of each other leads to a big fight, can Clarice make the best of the consequences.
A nice picture book for the primary reader who hasn't quite graduated to to the chapter book. Given that author Lauren Child has written both a series of picture books and chapter books about Clarice, this series is also a nice bridge for the reader who is reluctant to make the jump into dense literature.
