Clarice Bean, Guess Who's Babysitting?: 10/06/16
Clarice Bean, Guess Who's Babysitting? by Lauren Child leaves Clarice and her siblings in charge of irresponsible Uncle Ted as Mum and Dad leave the country to deal with a family emergency in New York. It's the sequel to Clarice Bean, That's Me!
I mostly know Child's work through the Charlie and Lola series. The artwork here is very similar and Clarice could easily be a distant cousin of those two. Clarice reports the ins and outs of the week with Uncle Ted. Things don't to as planned — and her parents are big on planning. But they make it through the week no worse for the wear.
It's a fun read — although I'm decidedly more a Charlie and Lola fan. I still enjoyed seeing Child's playful illustrations.
