Clarence is the story of an Italian boy who doesn’t look like the rest of his dark-haired, dark-skinned family. He is quiet and shy and cannot understand why his family is so loud! Most of all, Clarence feels left out at school because the kids tease him about his big ears. They bully him and taunt him because he doesn’t look like the rest of them, or so they think! This story reflects the feelings we all can have when we don’t think we fit in. It demonstrates that with a little “reflection” we can all discover that we are beautifully and wonderfully made!

“Awesome book!!!”

Five Star Review on Amazon By Dara Born

This is an adorable book. It truly brings the Italian culture to life though a great life lesson. If you’re like me, you may get hit with a little nostalgia and long for your Italian family. Made me think of dinner at my Nonna’s with noisy cousins and WAY too much food.
