This feisty and fun book from Sara Pennypacker features the loveable and enduring Clementine at her best.
Clementine has been picked for Friend of the Week, which means she gets to be line leader, collect the milk money, and feed the fish. Even better, she'll get a Friend of the Week booklet in which all the other third grade kids will write why they like her.
Clementine's best friend, Margaret, has all sorts of crazy ideas for how Clementine can prove to the class she is a friend. Clementine has to get a great booklet, so she does what Margaret says. But what begins as one of the best weeks every may turn out to be the worse! Who knew that being a friend could be so hard?
Sara Pennypacker was a painter before becoming a writer, and has two absolutely fabulous children who are now grown. She lives near the water on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. She loves to float around in the ocean when it's warm, and collect interesting things from the beach when it's not. When she was in school, she never had any problem at all paying attention. Okay, fine. The last part is about somebody else!
