Clarice Bean, Guess Who's Babysitting? 
By Lauren Child

Review by: Lori Plach

     Children usually have a favorite babysitter. One that they prefer more than anyone else. Clarice Bean is no exception. It just so happens to be Uncle Ted. Now having an uncle as a favorite babysitter may not seem like such a bad idea. But chances are, we don't have anyone as crazy as Uncle Ted.
     Clarice's mother needs a babysitter, since she and her husband are called out of town on business. She isn't too happy when she can't find another babysitter no matter how many calls she has made. When Uncle Ted comes to visit, things usually get pretty wild. But being choosy in this case isn't an option, so she has to let Uncle Ted baby-sit. Everything goes great for two days. Despite strict rules set out by the mother, things get out of hand when the school's guinea pig gets let out of his cage by Clarice's younger brother. Clarice is worried she was supposed to be babysitting for Albert while on Spring Break. Granddad wanders away and is found at a neighbor's house.
     After a wild adventure of chasing Albert. Clarice's younger brother gets
his head stuck in a fence. Uncle Ted is a firefighter in New York City so
rescuing people is normal for him. He calls his firefighter friends to help him. In the mean time, Clarice's mother returns home and has a creative solution to getting her son's head out of the fence. The house is a disaster, Mrs. Bean isn't surprised. Uncle Ted places the blame on Albert.
     Most children will identify with the transferring of blame. The crazy
antics throughout the book will keep the children entertained. This is simply a hilarious book. Fast paced story line and vivid colored pictures
will make this a sure fire hit for preschoolers. Outrageously funny!
