Sara Pennypacker has earned a solid fan base for her energetic Clementine books that feature good humor and clever wordplay. Third-grader Clementine constantly has brilliant ideas popping into her brain, but sometimes they get her in trouble. Only a few people really understand her-her parents of course, and her favorite teacher Mr. D'Matz. When he receives an opportunity to do research in Egypt, Clementine hatches a plan to keep him at her school-but as usual, it doesn't quite work out the way she wants. Don't miss Clementine's first adventure, Clementine also from Recorded Books.

"Poor Clementine! She's finally gotten in sync (or "in the sink," as she puts it) with her third-grade teacher, Mr. D'Matz, who understands her high energy and difficulty focusing in the classroom. Now he has a chance to win a long trip to Egypt. And that will leave Clementine at the mercy of a substitute--who doesn't understand her at all. Jessica Almasy confidently narrates this entertaining story with a youthful-sounding voice. She's especially good at portraying the nuances of other people's reactions to the irrepressible Clementine, whether those of Mr. D'Matz, her nonplussed substitute teacher, or her cool teenage friend, Mitchell. As listeners follow (breathlessly) along on well-meaning Clementine's adventures, they'll be touched by her insights into human nature, as well as her well-intentioned, if often disastrous, ideas.
