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.

    " it was a little kid like but SUPER GOOD "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 2/13/2014

    " Still great, though not quite as magical as the first one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mg | 2/9/2014

    " SO funny!!! Excited for the 5th book. "

    " Cute addition to the series, enjoyed character development and the principal discussion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 H | 2/4/2014

    " Pennypacker continues to deliver sweet, appealing stories about the red-headed everygirl Clementine. There is a certain element of 2/3/4th grade kids who just eat this series up, and I love the fact that they're not coming out so quickly that their quality is compromised. This time around, we follow Clementine through the experience of being "friend of the week" in class, and the tragedy of her lost kitten. Adults who have one of those quirky kids who can't quite conform should give Clementine a read, just to get an idea what MIGHT be going on in that head of theirs. It often makes perfect sense to THEM. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James | 2/4/2014

    " If Clementine's parents lived in the real world, I would fantasize about punching each of them in the nose while I fumed behind them in the line at the grocery store as they painstakingly filled their canvas tote with carrot juice and organic VirtueBars. As it is, they are safely ensconced between the covers of a book, and they have a really charming daughter. The series, though, may be approaching shark-jumping waters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ami | 2/2/2014

    " I must admit that I find the Clementine series very charming. Sara Pennypacker (which, might I add is the best last name ever) writes an interesting story which children can relate too, without making the mistake of being overly sentimental. I very much enjoy looking at the world through Clementine's eyes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne Beier | 1/25/2014

    " Good story and character growth. Liked this one a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Lee | 1/2/2014

    " Probably my favorite of the four books. Pennypacker adds depth to ALL the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mustang | 12/2/2013

    " all clementine wants is to be a good friend of the week.but she ends up losing her cat and not showing up at the bike rally. -ng "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Mowery | 10/14/2013

    " The whole Friend of the Week thing reminds me of Friend from 20th Century Boys, which makes this book a little weird. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 9/23/2013

    " Clementine and Mitchell are the best. This is the great thing about Mitchell. Whenever I ask him to do something, he says, "Sure!" even if it's something he could get in trouble for. If I ever want a boyfriend -- which I will not -- he will say "Sure!" to anything I suggest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 evelyn | 7/28/2013

    " I'll never get tired of these. I got a little choked up near the end with the kitten and the Margaret and ugh. I'm such a sucker for this shit. Read the whole thing before I even got home from the book expo where I got the galley. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 3/26/2013

    " Oh, Clementine, how I <3 thee. Given how cool her parents are tho...I just wished they'd had a collar and tags on the cat, even tho the story wouldn't have worked if they had. :( "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 2/7/2013

    " Clementine is going to be an awesome grown up someday. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 1/4/2013

    " Such a better series than Junie B. Jones! It would make a good read aloud. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 12/6/2012

    " clementine books are always fun reads. and usually followed up with a little moral of some sort. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 11/30/2012

    " I love the Clementine series and this one is just as good as the rest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen | 11/6/2012

    " I love Clementine--FRIEND OF THE WEEK is the perfect combination of mixed-ups, hurt feelings, and a lost kitty--all neatly resolved with Clementine's signature humor and personality. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kati | 8/2/2012

    " I love Clementine books ... she's such a precocious 3rd grader, but cute at the same time! These are great stories because they are also fun to read aloud to classes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby | 5/20/2012

    " I do SO like Clementine! The Talented Clementine will always be my favorite, but it's always fun to read about what she's up to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Jane | 4/28/2012

    " Listened to this one, as usual with this series. I agree with my sister the Goose--best one yet! I was cracking up over the "tattoo" section as I was driving down the road. More than one fellow commuter looked at me like I had lost my mind. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 11/23/2011

    " Clementine at her best. Funny, sweet, sensitive. I love Clementine's imagination - who else would, when her friend asks for a goat "tattoo", draw a bush and tell her friend that the goat was behind it? But it's how Clementine deals with the disappearance of her cat that was most poignant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josephine | 8/25/2011

    " I love Sara Pennypacker. Consistently funny, engaging, and heartwarming. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathleen | 5/22/2011

    " Very nearly as good as Ramona! The first-person narrative makes it a little less genuine, and there are a few language affectations that might get a little tiresome after a couple books, but Clementine is a great character. I've already read some aloud to one of my students, and she loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi | 5/9/2011

    " So cute and heart warming! Loved it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennie | 5/7/2011

    " The new Ramona! I LOVE Clementine! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaeley | 5/4/2011

    " Fun book about an energetic, creative girl. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 4/30/2011

    " Great humor for adults and kids--it would work as a read-aloud to any class from 1st - 3rd grade. One of many in the series about the girl named after a fruit. She's the new Ramona Quimby. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 4/29/2011

    " These are really cute stories. I'm actually listening to them on audiobook and have been enjoying the narrator as well. These would be fun books to read aloud with kids, but I think some of the humor would be even funnier to adults as they get a glimse into the logic of a spunky eight year old. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jade | 4/20/2011

    " Too cute! I read this book when i was little and i loved it!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tara | 4/18/2011

    " She is a house-hold name around our home. Alyssa rates all funny books in comparison to Clementine. Kayte will only call her baby brother 'Coconut' (I swear she wasn't listening.. but the similarities are too strong). Laugh-out-loud. We loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 4/4/2011

    " Super cute book. Very easy to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 EmmaLou | 3/26/2011

    " Spunky second-grader reminiscent of Ramona Quimby. Too cute. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 3/22/2011

    " Very cute. When I have a child I her to be just like this. "
