- In stock online
The First Clarice Bean Adventure from Waterstones Children's Laureate Lauren Child
"This book is about me, Clarice Bean. It's a very funny book and all of the pages have pictures, mostly of me. There are some annoying bits when my little brother barges in on pages 8 and 9, so you might want to miss them out ..."
All Clarice Bean wants is a bit of peace and quiet. But that can be hard to find in a house where your little brother is being utterly annoying, your big brother is in the dark tunnel of adolescence and your granddad's pouring soup on his cornflakes. Clarice introduces us to her life and family in the original book that launched the hugely successful, critically-acclaimed Clarice Bean series.
This multi award-winning, bestselling picture book is a classic tale of family life that will have you laughing out loud. Winner of the Smarties Book Prize and the Norfolk Children's Book Award, and highly commended for the Kate Greenaway Medal.
