Lauren Child’s spunky character returns and — as if things could get any livelier in Clarice Bean’s household —Uncle Ted is babysitting!

Who can Mom and Dad get to babysit the feisty Clarice, her pesky brother Minal Cricket, and the school’s guinea pig, Albert, who’s visiting for spring break? (Not to mention teenage brother Kurt, who abhors daylight; big sis Marcie, who chats on the phone all day; and Grandad, who tends to wander off.) Only Uncle Ted, firefighter and movie addict, can be persuaded. Will he survive the week?

About the Author

Lauren Child attended art school and did "lots of other things" before writing CLARICE BEAN, THAT'S ME. She designed ceramics for children, worked as an artist's assistant, and created lampshades for her own company. About the inspiration for this book—her first for Candlewick Press—she says, "I grew up with an older sister who read a lot and a younger sister who I had to share a room with whenever we had visitors (which was a lot, and my sister was very untidy, and guess who had to clean up the mess.)"

Clarice Bean's Uncle Ted comes to babysit and everything goes fine for a couple of days until the school guinea pig disappears and then chaos reigns. Soon Minal gets his head stuck in the fence and Ted calls the firefighters. However mom comes home and rescues Minal herself. Ted says babysitting is the hardest job. This is a good story to read aloud about what happens when mom goes away for a couple of days.

Clarice Bean has a rather large family, and she explains that some live at her home and some just come and visit. Her mom had been called to come take care of a family member who has fallen and she can't find anyone to babysit except for fun and crazy Uncle Ted, who is a firefighter. Everything seems to be going okay until Albert the class hamster, that Clarice has been put in charge of over spring break, has gone missing, then little brother gets hurt, and granddad goes missing too! This is a funny story about everyday family issues and how they bond and get through together.
