Meet the fabulously feisty Clarice Bean! In this hilarious picture book from Children’s Laureate, Lauren Child.

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 grandad’s pouring soup on his cornflakes . . .

A true picture book classic, this is the book that launched the award-winning, bestselling Clarice Bean series!

Packed with quirky details and humour, this is perfect for children who are ready to start making the transition from younger picture books to independent reading,
