Summary

An utterly good audio edition of the very first Clarice Bean novel. Read by Claire Skinner, star of the hit BBC comedy Outnumbered. Clarice Bean loves reading the adventures of Ruby Redfort, ace girl detective and secret undercover agent.

Ruby is always going on exciting missions, but all Clarice gets to do is go to the local shop on her own. But when Clarice and her best friend, Betty Moody, decide to do their school project on the Ruby Redfort books, they suddenly start finding mysteries everywhere. Like why are all the coats on the wrong hooks at school? Where has Granddad disappeared to? And just what is going on in the garden shed?

Brilliant!

Would you consider the audio edition of Clarice Bean, Utterly Me to be better than the print version?

It must be! The voices and reading are wonderfully entertaining.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Clarice of course.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I wouldn't make a film of the book. I'd just listen to this book again.

Any additional comments?

A perfect family listen. We have loved this and listened multiple times on car journeys. It looks "girlish" but our son has loved it when he was 6, 7 and now 8.
Very funny.
