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.

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.

Product Description

Review

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)

Wild, entertaining fun (The Northern Echo)

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.

As we read Clarice Bean books using different voices for all her famiy and friends, My Uncle Is A Hunkle, is a particular joy because we get to go American!! My children love this story because once again, Clarice's phrases and quirkiness are exactly how they see themselves in the world. The illustrations as ever are a delight!

Do NOT buy this book if you own Clarice Bean 'Guess Who's Babysitting?'. They have different titles and covers but are actually the same book same words and illustrations throughout.

My daughter loves Clarence Bean books but sadly we bought this together with Guess Who's Babysitting as a Christmas present. We were very disappointed to find that both books were the same and felt that more should have been done to highlight that it was the same story& illustrations under a different title

this book brings out the best in the mum in you and the best in the daughter in you - you just have to fall in love with this great hunk of an uncle who hasn't a clue but he's a real John Wayne hero anyway. Practice that american drawl, you will need it for when he speaks.

I received this item on time, however it was very, very evidently used. The condition of the spine was satisfactorily, but everything else was not.

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.

Completely hits the spot for 6/7 year olds. My daughter now has all the books and loves the family theme combined with the reality of family dynamics and everyday situations from Clarice Beans perspective. These are fabulous books! :)
