This week is going to be the best ever for Clementine. She' s been chosen as Friend of the Week in her third grade class-- and she' s bubbling with excitement! This great honor means you get to be a line leader, collect lunch money from everyone, and feed the fish. It also means the other kids will give her a nifty booklet saying what they like about her. What could be better than that? Hoping to get the most glowing, perfect booklet ever, Clementine gets her friend Margaret to help her come up with ways to get on her classmates' good sides. But when Clementine' s plans don' t work out, she has to try extra hard to repair her friendship with Margaret. This peppy addition to Sara Pennypacker' s critically acclaimed series will have young listeners cheering and giggling. Narrator Jessica Almasy keeps the pace light and fun, while voicing the adventures of this fan-favorite heroine. " What is not to like about the spirited Clementine?"-- Children' s Literature

"It's Clementine's turn to be "Friend of the Week," and she's determined to have a friend booklet filled with wonderful comments from her classmates. But Clementine's good deeds could be for naught when her focus turns to the more pressing matter of her missing cat. Jessica Almasy narrates superbly. One could easily believe she's retelling stories from her own childhood she so embodies the role of Clementine as she imparts her narration with perfect tones: exasperated, excited, bereft, and joyous. The rise and fall of her pitch, the quickening of her pace, and the emphasis on the right phrases make the listener feel it all. Almasy surrounds Clementine with a perfectly voiced cast: all-knowing and bossy Margaret; patient, reassuring parents; and a host of humorous classmates. J.K.R.
