Clementine's having a nervous breakdown. The FAMILY MEETING! sign is up in her house, and she just knows she's in trouble for something. Has she been too mean to her little brother? Too sloppy? Eating too much junk food? Try as she might to find out what's on the agenda, her parents won't reveal anything before the meeting. As far as Clementine is concerned, the agenda should be something like: "We're getting a gorilla." But no, it's something entirely different. "We're talking about a new baby," says her father. "A brother or sister for you two. What do you think about that?" NO THANKS! is what Clementine thinks. After all, four is the perfect number for a family. There are four sides to a table, not five. Will Clementine learn to make room for one more? Readers will chuckle at Clementine's unique perspective on the age-old issue of sibling rivalry.

I like all the funny parts especially at the family meeting where she says, "I knew it! We are getting a gorilla!"

This fifth Clementine novel does not disappoint. There is a science project in jeopardy, a family meeting to worry about, a missing favorite hat, her dad's new tool belt (Did he really get it from the president of the United States?), Margaret's makeup obsession and more. . . Love how Clementine describes her feelings in sections. Great way for kids to relate to having mixed feelings. Recommended!

These books each get better. Nothing bad in them. Funny. I see myself in Clementine.

This book develops the theme of a new addition to the family nicely. Clementine at first does not want any additions to their perfect family but grows into the idea. Excellent for a child with a newly growing family.

quoted by michael from book: Back in Mr Dmatz's class that afternoon I had to hear a lot of Clementine pay attention and just like before I was paying attention.I was paying attention to all the things 18 new families might need over the weekend
