I really like this book because it was funny. My favorite part is when Clementine's mom started to scrub her head because Margaret colored Clementine's hair green. She scrubbed so hard, Clementine thought she had a big hole in her head. If you read this book I promise you will laugh your head off! Clementine is an artist and so is her mom. My mom is an artist also, and they are just alike in many different ways. They don't like to get dressed up, and definitely do not wear make up! I think both moms could have painted the pictures in the book. The illustrations are funny and simple, so I think they would have had so much fun and done their best work!
I recommend this book to grades 3 and up. Kids in or under 2nd grade might have trouble because some words are difficult and can be a little confusing. This story happens in the city, so if you live in the city you could probably relate to it. Clementine will open up your imagination!
