Clarice Bean, Don’t Look Now by Lauren Child
Published by Orchard Books

In Don’t Look Now, Clarice Bean is getting slightly older and her worries are getting slightly bigger.

Fans of Lauren Child’s well-loved picture books such as I Am Too Absolutely Small for School or I Will Not Ever Never Eat a Tomato and who are now reading on their own, will find Clarice Bean, Don’t Look Now full of the same good fun they have come to know and love from this author.

The book provides lots of essential advice for children aged eight or nine, such as, how to deal with our worst fears, how to handle change, how worrying can be a complete waste of time and how our time can be much better spent planning exciting adventures.

This advice is presented with lots of humour and comes with the usual helping of quirky drawings that are Lauren Child’s trademark.
