Penguin, 2020. ISBN: 9781760897437.
(Age: 6-10) Recommended. Fans are in for lots of fun in the latest collection of three of the Clementine Rose stories in one large book. It will be thrilling for young readers to have a large book in their hands and emerging readers are sure to feel important and secure in their reading with this delightful collection. It is interspersed with funny illustrations that add to its appeal. The print is large and clear, very suitable for this age group. At the end of each story is a list of characters and their roles.
All three books have previously been reviewed on ReadPlus:
The first story is Clementine Rose and the wedding wobbles, where Clementine prepares to be a bridesmaid in her mother's wedding to Drew. Chaos must be averted!
Clementine Rose and the bake-off dilemma follows, with Clementine having inside access to the cooking show that is being filmed in the village.
Then comes Clementine Rose and the best news yet and Clementine Rose's news is that she is to have a new brother or sister.
As one reviewer writes: "Clementine is ageless as the young seven-year-old with the propensity for creating smiles and sometimes getting things slightly wrong".
