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.

From the Jacket

Everything depends on Ramona.

Ramona's job is to be nice to fussy Mrs. Kemp, who watches her while her mother works. If Mrs. Quimby didn't work, Mr. Quimby couldn't return to college. On top of all that, third grade isn't turning out as Ramona expected. Danny the Yard Ape teases her and, on one horrible day, she throws up—at school. Being eight isn't easy, but it's never dull!

About the Author

Beverly Cleary is one of America's most beloved authors. As a child, she struggled with reading and writing. But by third grade, after spending much time in her public library in Portland, Oregon, she found her skills had greatly improved. Before long, her school librarian was saying that she should write children's books when she grew up.

Instead she became a librarian. When a young boy asked her, "Where are the books about kids like us?" she remembered her teacher's encouragement and was inspired to write the books she'd longed to read but couldn't find when she was younger. She based her funny stories on her own neighborhood experiences and the sort of children she knew. And so, the Klickitat Street gang was born!

Mrs. Cleary's books have earned her many prestigious awards, including the American Library Association's Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, presented to her in recognition of her lasting contribution to children's literature.Dear Mr. Henshawwon the Newbery Medal, andRamona Quimby, Age 8andRamona and Her Fatherhave been named Newbery Honor Books. Her characters, including Beezus and Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, and Ralph, the motorcycle-riding mouse, have delighted children for generations.

From Our Editors

Hand picked by our Panel of Experts the IndigoKids Recommends program offers book suggestions designed to help you find the perfect book easily and confidently.

Ramona can’t understand it! She’s an impressive eight years old -- old enough to help Beezus make the dinner and take the bus by herself -- even old enough to deal with that irritating Willa Jean. But Ramona’s teacher called her a ‘nuisance.’ What’s the proud third-grader doing wrong? Beverly Cleary’s immortal Ramona Quimby is a middle reader’s favourite, experiencing situations eight to 12-year-olds are only too familiar with. Cleary writes another Newbery Honor winner in Ramona Quimby, Age 8.
