Reviews

* "Han...captures an 8-year-old's perspective perfectly...The message shines through but doesn't overwhelm this engaging chapter book that will be welcomed by middle-grade fans of Clementine."--Kirkus (starred review)
* "This is a delightful book that will have readers looking for more adventures featuring Clara Lee and her friends."--Library Media Connection (starred review)
"Clara Lee thinks, speaks, and acts just like the third grader she is in this charming early chapter book. Black-and-white drawings, some full page and some spot art, feature the child, her dilemmas, and her successes. Fans of Clementine will enjoy this endearing character."--School Library Journal
"I love Clara Lee's surprising and dead-on similes and metaphors and her fun play on words! I also love how she's totally ethno-cool and totally American. Way to go, Clara Lee!"--Lenore Look, author of the Ruby Lu and Alvin Ho series
"I really loved Clara Lee. This is a compact little book with a big heart."--Linda Sue Park, Newbery Award-winning author of A Single Shard
"In this marvel of a book, Clara Lee shows us what it means to receive a shot of Good Luck, and at the same time she also learns how to be a better friend, granddaughter, and sister. It all adds up."--Kathi Appelt, Newbery Honor author of
The Underneath and Keeper
"Readers will delight in this American-as-apple-pie third grader as she follows her BIG DREAM in a string of heartfelt adventures as perfect as an unbroken candy necklace."--Megan McDonald, author of the Judy Moody series
"Sparkly and cheerful...Numerous black-and-white illustrations provide newly independent readers with both plot clues and speedy page turns in this winning chapter book."--The Horn Book
"The funniest interludes are her credible interactions with her younger sister; Clara Lee's memorable descriptions, such as the "limp green bean kind of hug" she gives her grandfather when she's feeling down, will endear her to readers."--Publishers Weekly
