Random House, 2014. ISBN 9781742757513.
(Age: 8+) Clementine Rose and the Seaside Escape sees 5 year old Clementine and her family heading for the English seaside while their home is getting a new roof. Clementine meets Della and Freddy. She enjoys spending time with Freddy but tries to avoid Della - she's annoying. Freddy and Clementine love spending time at the beach and are surprised when they find a baby seal. When Della decides to go and investigate at night time, both children go after her, worried she will get into trouble. Watch out Freddy and Clementine, it looks like you might need rescuing!
Clementine Rose and the Seaside Escape is a descriptive novel aimed at girls, who read independently, aged 8+. It is a sweet story with easy to read text and is great for readers moving on to novels. The story is easy to follow, has a definite narrative structure and is accompanied by black and white illustrations.
