Description
Don t look now, but Lauren Child has outdone herself with a Clarice Bean novel that is the funniest and most poignant yet.
It's the worry you hadn t even thought to worry about that should worry you the most. At least that's how it looks to Clarice Bean, who has been writing her worries in a notebook things like Worry no. 1: infinity, or Worry no. 3: change. And now that her worst never-imagined worry has happened her utterly best friend is moving away forever Clarice doesn t even care about her tickets to the Ruby Redfort, girl detective, movie premiere. That is, unless something happens to change things again. . . . Lauren Child's trademark wit combines with spot-on insight in this hugely engaging story about childhood worries, unwanted changes, and finding friendships in the most surprising places.
