Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange  for an honest review.

Did I enjoy this book: 
I really did. Like the first book, Clementine Rose and the Surprise Visitor, I finished this book in a few hours. (You can see my review of book 1 here.) And I enjoyed every minute.

Clementine Rose is just as sweet and precocious and adorable in this book as she was in the first. You can’t help but love her. Her first day of school experience was great. I loved the head mistress, Miss Critchly. She really knows kids. And the Pet Day is so much fun. Just a wonderful read.


Would I recommend it: Yes, I would. Like the first book, I can’t wait to share this series with my daughter.


About the book – from Goodreads: 
Clementine Rose is so excited! She’s going to start school with her best friends Sophie and Poppy and she can’t wait. But when she gets there, instead of the lovely Miss Critchley, her teacher is the much sterner and shoutier Mrs Bottomley. And then there’s Angus, a little boy who delights in tormenting her from the moment they first meet.

After her first day, Clementine decides school may not be so much fun after all. But the announcement of a Pet Day changes everything. If Lavender the teacup pig can come to school with Clementine, everything will be alright… won’t it?





  1. I love Clementine Rose! I have read the first 8 or so to my kids. They are 4 and 6 and really enjoyed the story too. My son even helped me review this book on my blog.
