Clementine’s Letter by Sara Pennypacker, with pictures by Martha Frazee 2008 (150 pgs)
Clementine is back for her third high-energy, low-attention-span adventure. She’s just getting the hang of third grade and all its rules when her teacher announces he may be leaving for Egypt. He’s nominated for a study abroad program, and all the students are asked to write letters saying why their teacher should be picked. So Clementine write a doozy. And then she sits back and hopes her anti-nomination letter will convince the judges not to send her teacher away. Meanwhile, she’s stuck with a new teacher whose rules she just can’t understand. Bring on the hijinks.
