A Box of Clementines
Sara Pennypacker, Marla Frazee
(Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, Sept. 13, 2011)
This brightly colored box contains the paperback editions of CLEMENTINE, THE TALENTED CLEMENTINE, and CLEMENTINE'S LETTER, the first three books in the "spectacularful," best-selling series about an unforgettable third grade girl. Sara Pennypacker's character, with her unique perspective on school, friends, and family, has been compared to Beverly Clearly's Ramona. Caldecott Honoree Marla Frazee brilliantly brings Clementine to life with detailed pen-and-ink illustrations throughout. Valued priced, this is the perfect gift for readers who are hankering for their first chapter book.
