Lauren Child, Author: Lauren Child. Another brilliant and lovable book in the Clarice Bean series. This time, Clarice is facing her biggest, baddest worries by writing them all down in a notebook. But a worry has come along that she hadn't even thought about - her utterly best friend is moving away forever. Just what is she going to do? This book is great for all those familar childhood anxieties around school friends, life changes and fitting in at school. As ever, Lauren Child tackles all of this with a lot of humour, fun and some fabulously stylish illustrations.

The Clarice Bean series is just awesome for elementary school readers. (Lauren Child also writes the "Charlie and Lola" books.)
Clarice lives in London, is wonderfully mischievious, and absolutely hysterical. She isn't snottly like Junie B., but certainly does have her share of run-ins with authority. She and her best friend are obsessed with super spy Ruby Redfort and in this book, Clarice gets to try out some detective work at school

My daughter was (and still is...but won't admit it because she is 10) a huge Charlie and Lola fan. We were thrilled that the author decided to write books for those who were growing up. This is a great book. Very funny and innocent. Another classic.

There are already many good reviews of the various Clarice Bean books; I don't wish to reinvent the wheel. All that I really want to add is that Lauren Child has that rare gift of being able to write about a child's thoughts with humor and genuine insight. This is much harder than it looks.

This is a fun book that has among others a bullying theme. If you are not from or in North America be warned the Clarice Bean books from Amazon US uses mom instead of the very British mum. These are a charming series of books from the brilliant Lauren Child.

Clarice Bean, Don't Look Now
Recommended Ages 7-10
Clarice is having a hard time lately. Her best friend Betty moves away, the new girl Clem seems mean, her parents are fighting and may get divorced. She keeps a worry journal and follows the Ruby Redfort Survival Handbook for tips on how to get through all the bumps that continue to pop up in her life. She really loves her acting class and even gets a small part in a Ruby Redfort film. The premier is soon. The film company has sent her special tickets! This not as exciting as before since Betty is gone.
The book is written in journal form with different fonts and doodles here and there. This is an excellent example of what preteens think and worry about in life. Clarice is honest and droll. She and Betty write each other emails. Betty seems so happy that Clarice doesn't want to tell her the truth about life at home. Surprising events occur and Clarice must be brave even though she is not a super smart spy like Ruby Redfort. She tries to do the right thing and change may not be so bad after all. [...]

claims Clarice Bean about her current read, "The Ruby Redfort Survival Handbook: What to do When Your Worst Worry Comes Your Way." And Clarice, third of four children (p 10) "being the second from youngest isn't really anything, is it?" has a lot of worries, so many that she jots them in a "worst worries" notebook (p 7) "because people say things aren't so bad if you make a list." What might a girl like Clarice worry about, things like: (Pp 8, 9, 10, 96, 66) the meaning of life, infinity, change, being bored to nearly utter death, and largish spiders. Ms. Redfort's words of wisdom, (p 11) "REMEMBER-it's the worry you haven't even thought to worry about-that is the worry that should worry you the most." Also contained in the survival handbook, helpful hints, like: (p 19, 28, 35, 104) "A true spy will notice the unnoticeable," "Never eat a polar bear's liver-no matter how hungry you are," "If trouble is around the corner, try walking the other way," and my absolute favorite (in the subsection under How to survive in shark-infested waters), "Whatever you do, do not let them explore you with their teeth."

Fortunately, Clarice's "utterly best friend" Betty Moody shares her fascination with all things Ruby Redfort. Unfortunately, her ubf moves away, leaving her alone with her worries and her tickets for the movie premiere of Run, Ruby, Run, in which she has a small part. Even worse, a new (Swedish) girl arrives at the school, soaking up the attentions of her classmates. With Betty (mostly) incommunicado, Clarice slips into despair, and misinterprets the actions of others, thus piling on additional worries. But when all seems lost, she stumbles upon the clues to a kidnapping, uses what she's learned from RR to help solve the crime, and makes a new friend. The hardcopy version of this book, with its colorful cover and built-in bookmark, would be a great choice for any third to fifth grade worrier, with its refreshingly original variety of fonts, sketches, and predictably-positive-ending story. Also good: The Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron, The View from Saturday by E.L. Konigsburg, and The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart.

I just finished reading this book to my 6 year old daughter. She really enjoyed it though it was a bit over her head. I on the other hand, was "utterly" entranced. I just can't stop thinking about this book. It was incredible on so many levels. It touched on several important themes... loneliness, loss, worry, bullying, moving, incorrect assumptions..... without being at all patronizing. Far from being annoying, I found Clarice Bean's peculiar conversational cadence made the story that much more real... and towards the last few chapters, even poetic. The book is rich and amazing... definitely one to reread.... Kudos to Lauren Child, very well done !!!!!
