Clarice Bean is back and starring in her second novel! Created by Children’s Laureate Lauren Child and read by Claire Skinner, star of the BBC’s ‘Outnumbered’.

There are so many things in life you can’t explain. Like why isn’t YOU spelt U? Why isn’t WHY spelt Y? And why can just opening your mouth get you into some very BIG trouble?

Clarice Bean is in non-stop trouble these days – almost as much as Karl Wrenbury, and he is the naughtiest boy in school. Clarice just wants to star in the school play and impress Mrs Wilberton in the spelling bee, but things aren’t quite going to plan . . .

‘Witty and charming. We can’t get enough of Clarice Bean.’ – Independent

Lauren Child is a Kate Greenaway Medal winner and the creator of the bestselling Charlie & Lola series.

I love this book. It really is great - in fact, the Clarice Bean books are probably the best books I've ever read!!
