This was the first chapter book I read in elementary school. ( )

Ramona still has trouble with teachers and parents not behaving the way she wants them to. She is still misunderstood and she misunderstands which leaves her more frustrated. The themes don't change a lot here from the previous books. Not my favorite of the bunch, but it has a happy ending, and my daughter still liked it. ( )

51 months - This is by far our favorite of the series. I can see why it won awards. We were totally entranced by the chapter where Ramona and Beezus have to make dinner for the family. And again when Ramona throws up in school. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0380709562, Paperback)

From the first day of third grade, when Ramona Quimby meets her eventual nemesis Yard Ape, life moves on at its usual wild pace--usual for the boisterous Ramona, that is. Soon she is accidentally squashing a raw egg into her hair at the school cafeteria, being forced to play Uncle Rat with her annoying young neighbor, and, worst of all, throwing up in her classroom. The responsibilities of an 8-year-old are sometimes daunting, especially in a family that is trying to squeak by while the father goes back to school. But Ramona is full of too much vim and vigor to ever be down for long.

In her second Newbery Honor Book about Ramona (the first was Ramona and Her Father), Beverly Cleary presents another slice of the Quimby family life. Author of more than two dozen children's books, Cleary has a true knack for understanding the tangle of thoughts and emotions in a child's mind and heart. Empathic, witty, and astute, she has earned many other awards, including the Newbery Medal for Dear Mr. Henshaw. Alan Tiegreen's clever line drawings have charmed countless readers of Cleary's books over the years, and his style is now inextricably tied to hers. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter
