Summer is coming, and Clementine is not ready. She is not ready to start speaking to her father again, because she's still mad at him for eating meat. Instead, she has to express her sadness by giving him drawings of animals she knows would not want to be somebody's dinner.

Then there is the new baby on the way. Clementine's mom sure doesn't seem ready. She's suddenly crazy about cleaning (Dad says she is nesting ), but she doesn't even have a name picked out yet. Clementine just hopes the baby won't be a dud.

What Clementine really isn't ready for is saying good-bye to her third grade teacher. She knows Mr. D'Matz is going to tell her all kinds of things that aren't true. Everything else may be changing around her, but that doesn't mean that Clementine has.

But which is worse, saying good-bye, or not saying good-bye? Praise for CLEMENTINE
*"Give this to readers of Cleary and Blume and cross your fingers for more."

Praise for THE TALENTED CLEMENTINE

*"Clementine is a true original. ? Libraries will need multiple copies of this one, because early chapter-book readers will jump at the chance to spend another eventful week with Clementine."
-School Library Journal (starred review)

Praise for CLEMENTINE, FRIEND OF THE WEEK

*"Pennypacker's writing once again brings creativity, humor, and sensitivity to Clementine and her world. Black-and-white line illustrations grace the book, capturing the child's personality and varied emotions. A must-have for most collections. Fans will be in for another fun serving of their favorite girl named after a fruit."
-School Library Journal (starred review)

Praise for CLEMENTINE AND THE FAMILY MEETING

*"Filled with familiar Clementine charm but, more importantly, a whole lot of heart, too."
-Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Praise for CLEMENTINE AND THE SPRING TRIP ". . .we have classic Clementine. Not only does she solve the mystery of the smelly bus but she also figures out why fussy Margaret is so neurotic and realizes that a new student might be a new friend. Clementine's voice is growing more sophisticated as she gets older, but it's still true to her age and her fans' ages, too."

In this last book in the Clementine series, we see her preparing to say goodbye to 3rd grade and hello to a new sibling. On top of that, Margaret's mother is getting married and Clementine is helping her deal with the changes coming in her life. Love the "Pentagon" project and how Clementine's passion about being a vegan household forces her to work through giving her dad the silent treatment regarding his menu choices. Love this series!

These are great fun books. This is another good one, with the exception that she goes through a period of not speaking to her dad.
