"Fans of Child's irrepressible, impulsive picture-book heroine -- as well as kids who have not yet had the pleasure of making her acquaintance -- will devour her first chapter-book adventure." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

It's not easy to concentrate at school when mysterious things are happening all around you. In fact, Clarice Bean is starting to feel just like her favorite heroine: Ruby Redfort, schoolgirl detective. Clarice and her utterly best friend, Betty Moody, are planning to ace their book project about Ruby and win the class prize, until Betty disappears into thin air, and horrible teacher Mrs. Wilberton teams Clarice up with the naughtiest boy in school. Will her new partner ruin everything? Will Betty ever come back? And what on earth happened to the silver trophy everyone's hoping to win? Lauren Child brings her trademark wacky wit and eccentric visual energy to a full-length, fastpaced Clarice Bean episode that will charm even the most capricious reader.

Clarice Bean loves to read, specifically the Ruby Redford mysteries. So when her teacher announces the author's fair, Clarice, along with her best friend, Betty Moody, plan to do their project on Ruby. But her teacher feels that this is not real literature, throwing a series of obstacles in their path. Then the school's Author Fair trophy goes missing. Can Clarice use what she's learned from Ruby Redford to solve the mystery.

A silly, wonderful chapter book that brings the picture book heroine into novel format. Fun for the beginning reader.
