Clementine can't believe her ears when she hears that her beloved teacher, Mr. D'Matz, might be leaving them for the rest of the year to go on a research trip to Egypt! No other teacher has ever understood her impulsiveness, her itch to draw constantly, or her need to play "Beat the Clock" when the day feels too long. And in his place, he's left a substitute with a whole new set of rules that Clementine just can't figure out. The only solution, she decides, is to get Mr. D'Matz back. If it means ruining her teacher's once-in-a-lifetime chance—well, it's worth it. Isn't it?

About this Series

Clementine is a girl with a unique way of looking at life. Her thoughts run a mile a minute, she has a terrible aversion to pointy things, and she's allergic to sitting still. Clementine notices things and imagines possibilities that no one else sees—she just has trouble following the rules that the world around her seems to have made up. This lovely series imagines the world from Clementine's perspective, one that many readers will recognize. It provides a wonderful look at a child with the confidence to be different and a family that encourages her creativity.
