This book is a story about a girl Clementine, and her friend who is a year older, Margaret. One day Margaret gets glue in her hair and Clementine tries to help her by cutting her hair. This gets clementine in trouble with the principle and Margarets mom. Trying to make up for cutting her friends hair, Clementine get herself into even more trouble throughout the week by cutting her own hair and coloring it with markers. Clementine means well in her wrong doings and in this story she learns a valuable life lesson. ( )

As Clementine says, "Spectacularful ideas are always sproinging up in my brain." All the better for readers who like to laugh. Reminiscent of both Ramona and Junie B. Jones, Clementine is an ingenuous third-grader with a talent for trouble and a good heart. Her best friend is her neighbor Margaret, a fourth-grader who experiences both qualities firsthand. After all, plenty of kids may have had their hair chopped off by a helpful friend in an effort to get the glue out, but how many of those friends would think to improve matters by drawing hair back on the scalp, forehead, and neck with a Flaming Sunset permanent marker? "It looked beautiful, like a giant tattoo of tangled worms," Clementine observes in the fresh, funny, first-person narrative. ( )

Clementine worries a lot and is always finding herself in trouble. She is told often told to "pay attention" although she feels as if she is always paying attention just not to the specific things she is asked to pay attention to. She is young and humorous and she soon finds herself in the principles office because she cut her friend's hair even though it's not exactly what it looked like. She continues getting in trouble and then convinces herself that her parents are going to get rid of her because she is the hard child.

First words
I have had not so good of a week.
"I was the only person in the whole art room who WAS paying attention. Which is why I could tell everyone right in the middle of the Pledge of Allegiance that the lunchroom lady was sitting in the janitor's car and they were kissing. Again. No one else saw this disgusting scene, because no one else was paying attention out the window!"
