A brilliantly quirky picture book from Children’s Laureate, Lauren Child. Starring the fabulously feisty Clarice Bean!

Mum and Dad are going away on Important Business, so Uncle Ted comes to stay. Before long there’s a guinea pig on the loose, Grandad’s gone missing and her little brother is stuck in the railings like a giant squeaking tomato! Luckily Uncle Ted’s around. He’ll come to the rescue . . . won’t he?

The second picture book in 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.


Reviews

A virtuoso display of stylish graphics, dizzying typefaces employed to maximum humorous effect, and a story which takes it for granted that the reader is as streetwise and worldly as Clarice Bean herself
