Clarice Bean is back in a second riotous family saga. When Mum and Dad both have to go away on Important Business, there's nothing for it but to ask Uncle Ted to babysit. Uncle Ted is a fireman and says he has had lots of close shaves which is funny because he has a beard. Pretty soon chaos reigns as the guinea pig escapes, Grandad disappears and Minal Cricket gets his head stuck in the railings...An older picture book which will make you laugh out loud: Clarice Bean is a real heroine for the new millennium. CLARICE BEAN THAT'S ME winner of the Bronze Award in the Smarties Book Prize "Brilliantly written and drawn by Lauren Child...Clarice Bean has an Eloise-like charm which makes her view on life irresistible"
