Ramona likes that she’s old enough to be counted on, but must everything depend on her? Mrs. Quimby has gone back to work so that Mr. Quimby can return 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! 

In this Newbery Honor Book, Beverly Cleary lovingly chronicles Ramona’s experiences.

Customer Reviews of Ramona Quimby, Age 8

Reviews

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.
