Author Andrew Clements

For the first time in Book Buddies history, we are repeating an author! This month we are reading We the Children, the first in a new series by the fantastic author Andrew Clements. Those who've been in the book club since the beginning will remember that way back in December of 2007 we read another Andrew Clements book, The Last Holiday Concert. We loved that one and I'm sure we're going to really enjoy this new one!

Andrew Clements is a truly fantastic author and has written many, many books for children. Here are just a few of his books that I've especially enjoyed:

Frindle (1996)
An Andrew Clements classic!

When he decides to turn his fifth grade teacher's love of the dictionary around on her, clever Nick Allen invents a new word and begins a chain of events that quickly moves beyond his control.

A Week in the Woods (2002)

The fifth grade's annual camping trip in the woods tests Mark's survival skills and his ability to relate to a teacher who seems out to get him.

Lunch Money (2005)
Twelve-year-old Greg, who has always been good at moneymaking projects, is surprised to find himself teaming up with his lifelong rival, Maura, to create a series of comic books to sell at school.

Room One: A Mystery of Two (2006)

Ted Hammond, the only sixth grader in his small Nebraska town's one-room schoolhouse, searches for clues to the disappearance of a homeless family.

No Talking (2007)

The noisy fifth grade boys of Laketon Elementary School challenge the equally loud fifth grade girls to a "no talking" contest.
