Synopsis

Clementine is having a “not so good of a day” – but this spunky eight-year-old doesn’t let a trip to the principal’s office get her down! Whether she’s cutting the glue out of her best friend Margaret’s hair, concocting a scheme to prevent her teacher Mr. D’Matz from moving to Egypt, or riding the service elevator with Mitchell, who is N-O-T not her boyfriend, Clementine’s antics are sure to make you laugh. Come join America’s favorite curly-haired carrot-top as she navigates the hilarious waters of friendship, family, school, and mischief on an epic third-grade adventure you’ll never forget.
