What planet are you from Clarice Bean?


The protagonist learns about the planet and the environment in school. Along with her older brother, she gets involved in a campaign to save a tree on their street that is going to be chopped down.


The protagonist’s “world,” or planet, is not shown as being tied to gender-specific norms. She is shown as taking an active part in shaping and saving her world and an emphasis is placed on her being allowed to learn and develop through experience.
