    Beezus and Ramona

    by Beverly Cleary and Tracy Dockray

    Ramona Quimby is the youngest of all the famous characters in Mrs. Cleary's wonderful Henry Huggins stories. She is also far and away the most deadly. Readers of the earlier books will remember that Ramona has always been a menace to Beezus, her older sister, to Henry, and to his dog Ribsy. It is not that Ramona deliberately sets out to make trouble for other people. She simply has more imagination than is healthy for any one person.

    In this book Ramona and her imagination really come into their own. Starting with a fairly mild encounter with the librarian, which is harder on Beezus than anyone else, Ramona goes from strength to strength, winding up by inviting her entire kindergarten class to a part at her home without mentioning it to her mother. The riot that ensues is probably the most hilarious episode in this extremely funny book, which proves that Mrs. Cleary's imagination is almost as lively as Ramona's.

About This Book

The irresistible, irrepressible Ramona — who's now a fourth-grader — struggles with her spelling, gleefully battles her old nemesis, Yard Ape, and joyfully makes her first real girl friends. Follows the adventures of nine-year-old Ramona at home with big sister Beezus and baby sister Roberta and at school in Mrs. Meacham's class.

Ramona Quimby is sure fourth grade will be "the best year of her life, so far". She can show off her calluses from swinging on the rings in the park, sit across the aisle from the boy she calls Yard Ape, and enjoy her cheerful new teacher, Mrs. Meacham. Most exciting of all, Ramona has a new best friend, Daisy.

Fourth grade doesn't turn out quite the way Ramona has hoped. Mrs. Meacham wants her to improve her spelling. Ramona also must be a good role model for her baby sister, Roberta. And Mrs. Quimby wants her to spend more time with the super-perfect Susan. Fourth-grade life isn't always easy, but it's full of adventure, and at the end of it all — a "zeroteenth" birthday to celebrate!

Newbery Medalist Beverly Cleary brings insight and humor to a novel that's as memorable and refreshing as its young heroine.
