Clarice Bean, That's Me

Meet the fabulously feisty Clarice Bean in this hilarious short story. Brilliantly read by Claire Skinner – star of BBC’s Outnumbered!

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 fresh, playful, wonderfully chaotic look at family life that will make you laugh out loud” Independent

Written by former Children’s Laureate, Lauren Child, this is the story that launched the award-winning, bestselling Clarice Bean series!
