Description

This is the first title in the hugely popular series about Ramona Quimby. Ramona's sister, Beezus, tries very hard to be patient, but how many nine-year-old girls have to put up with their embarrassing, annoying little four-year-old sisters? Sisters are supposed to love each other, but pesky little Ramona just doesn't seem very lovable to Beezus. Beverly Cleary is one of America's most popular authors and has won many prestigious awards, including the American Library Association's Laura Ingalls Wilder Award. "Beezus and Ramona" is being published to coincide with the publication of the latest Ramona title, "Ramona's World".show more

Review Text

Still another set of adventures about the members of the Henry Huggins' contingent turns the spotlight on "Beezus", (Beatrice Quimby) and her younger sister Ramona. Beezus really goes through the mill with Ramona, who for most of this book, is in her charge. Four-year-old Ramona of course always has an answer for everything, sometimes a surprisingly successful one. A few of the things that happen to her and desperately sensible Beezus include a marked up library book, a tussle with Ribsy- Henry's famous dog- a session in art class where Ramona comes off with literally flying colors, etc. Miss Cleary's wit is accurate and irresistible.
