The Talented Clementine (#2)
After Clementine's teacher announces the upcoming talent show, dubbed the 'Talent-palooza', Clementine is thrown into a panic, realising that she can't dance, sing, do gymnastics...in fact she can't even hop with any finesse! Annoyingly, her best friend Margaret is at the other end of the spectrum, so much so that she has to alphabetise her talents to keep track of them! The results of the evening are a shock to teachers, parents and most especially, Clementine herself.
