More About the Author
Lauren Child is considered one of the most talented children's book author/illustrators working today and has won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal for I Will Not Ever Never Eat a Tomato, the Nestle Gold Book Award for That Pesky Rat and the Nestle Bronze Book Award for Beware of the Storybook Wolves. Utterly Me, Clarice Bean, Lauren's first fiction title, was a runaway success all over the world. Lauren has now sold over 3 million books in 19 countries across the globe.
Notable events in Lauren's career include selection for Quentin Blake's Magic Pencil Exhibition (British Library) in 2005; the Charlie and Lola TV series winning a BAFTA in 2007; In 2008 Lauren was appointed Artist for Peace by UNESCO and has been spearheading a project to raise money for UNESCO's Programme for the Education of Children in Need, called My Life is a Story. All profits from the sale of a special edition of That Pesky Rat will go to UNESCO. A retrospective of Lauren's work starting at the Manchester Art gallery toured the country from 2008 to 2010.
Lauren loves designing and making things and finds it exciting to see her drawings turned into objects. Other favourite things include the cinema, TV matinees, small Italian cars, handbags, cardigans, travelling and being picked up from the airport.
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 (Financial Times)

More fun in the Bean household! Mum has to go to New York, and Dad has to go away on IMPORTANT BUSINESS. So who looks after Clarice, Marcie, Minal, Kurt and Grandad while Mum and Dad are away? As a last resort Mum calls in Uncle Ted. After only two days of normality Chaos takes over.
Albert the Guinea Pig gets lost, Minal has an accident and Grandad wanders off.
Lauren Child's book is a long way removed from the pastel coloured world of traditional kid's books. The illustrations are full on, with clever use of photomontage with text and type-fonts that go every which way. Most children will get a kick out of the very stylish layout and quirky humour. You can really believe that young Clarice wrote this book. All young readers will certainly enjoy her latest story.
First of all, the corners of the book were incredibly squished down in such a way they were beginning to rip. Secondly, in the inside cover there were several words written in ink pen which has smudged on the page. Also, the pages were sticky so I had to carefully peal them apart, some of the top of the pages were also slightly ripped in places. No doubt, I will be asking for a refund.
