Clarice Bean, That's Me (Clarice Bean)

With one pesky younger brother who hangs upside down until he turns a funny color, an older brother in the "dark tunnel of adolescence," and a boy-crazy sister who won't notice her except to tell her to go away, Clarice Bean has her hands full. All she wants is a little peace and quiet. Her mother retreats to the bathtub with candles and language tapes, her father scoots off to his big fancy office, and Grandad spends all his time asleep with a cat on his head. Clarice, reminiscent of Kay Thompson's Eloise, plays her dry wickedness to the hilt in this hilarious look at family chaos. (ages 4 to 8)
