A fresh, new look for Ramona is here! All eight Ramona
titles will be out just in time to celebrate Beverly Cleary''s 97th
birthday with new illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers.
Ramona likes being big enough to be counted on, but must
everything depend on her? Mrs. Quimby has gone back to work so that
Mr. Quimby can go back to school, and Ramona is expected to be good
for Mrs. Kemp while her parents are away, to be brave enough to
ride the school bus by herself, and to put up with being teased by
Danny the Yard Ape. In Ramona''s world, being eight isn''t easy,
but it''s never dull!
Ramona Quimby, Age 8 is the sixth book in the Ramona
series and the second to receive a Newbery Honor distinction. It is
also that book that introduces the well known D.E.A.R.
