Product description

Havoc breaks out when Miss Wilberton decides to put on a school play of The Sound of Music. Clarice is desperate to play the part of Leisl – she would utterly be great at it! – but that will involve persuading Miss Wilberton that she won’t be any TROUBLE. Meanwhile, the school spelling bee is approaching, and naughty boy Karl Wrenbury is in a really bad fix. Can Clarice take a leaf out of Ruby Redford’s book – the leaf where it says ‘never let a good pal down’ – even if it means landing herself in bigger trouble than ever? Creating a fresh, funny voice that just leaps from the page, and an engaging moral dilemma for Clarice to tussle with, this warm and sympathetic story spells entertainment all round!

    Just like the other book, I loved it!! Clarice Bean actually got in trouble though, and it wasn’t even her fault!

    This book is really good because it is intriguing but it is not as good as Don’t Look Now.
