Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite book of all time This book was given to me by my 2nd Grade Teacher as an end of school year gift. I was 7 years old, turning 8, and entering Grade 3--just like Ramona Quimby!! She was someone that I could completely relate to and would have loved to have had as a friend! I must have read this book several times over!! Beverley Cleary did an awesome job of portraying this funny, real little girl and her not so perfect family, and all of the trails and tribulations of being 8!! It has remained and will remain my favorite book for life and I will be giving a copy of it to each of 3 daughters on their 8th birthday!! And I'll be keeping my copy on my bookshelf wherever I go!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ramona Quimby, Age 8 This is a great book, and while reading it I found so many similarities between my much younger self and the main character. Cleary does a wonderful job of relating how the young Ramona views the world around her, whether at her school or home. I can remember the different fads at my school and my own attempts at getting out of the holes I'd accidentally dug for myself. If you enjoy this book, may I also recommend Cleary's Ralph S. Mouse.

About the Author

Beverly Cleary was born in McMinnville, Oregon, and until she was old enough to attend school she lived on a farm in Yamhill, a town so small it had no library. Her mother arranged to have books sent to their tiny town from the state library and acted as a librarian in a room over a bank. It was there that Mrs. Cleary learned to love books. Generations of children have grown up with Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, Ralph Mouse, and all of their friends, families, and assorted pets. Beverly Cleary continues to capture the hearts and imaginations of children of all ages throughout the world.
