For Clementine, spring is a really big deal. It's the time her apple tree starts to grow, her friend Margaret goes crazy with spring-cleaning, and the school takes a trip to Plimoth Plantation. Clementine is ready for "Ye Olden Times," but she isn't so sure about surviving lunch there—the fourth graders have strict rules about no eating sounds. (What is snicking, anyway?) If that wasn't enough, Clementine also faces the challenges of learning Olive-language and surviving the worst smell of them all—The Cloud on Bus Seven!

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.
