Author Info
Beverly Cleary
Beverly Cleary is one of the most popular and best-loved authors of children's books. Her works have sold over 75 million copies in 20 countries and have been translated into 14 languages. These figures are even more impressive with the added fact that Cleary had trouble learning to read when she was a child. Cleary has created many memorable characters including Henry Huggins and his dog Ribsy, Ellen Tebbits, and her most popular character, Ramona Quimby. In 1984, Cleary won the Newbery Medal book for DEAR MR. HENSHAW. She also received the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award for her body of work. Today, fans of Beverly Cleary can visit the town of Portland, Oregon--where Cleary was raised and set many of her books--and find a wading fountain featuring statues of Henry, Ribsy, and Ramona.
From the Publisher
Annotation A young girl named Janet gets angry when her twin brother, Jimmy, won't stay out of her collection of special things. Will Janet ever find a way to keep Jimmy out of her thingamajigs? Color illustrations accompany the text.
Editors Note A paper clip, a bead, and a spool are among Janet's "thingamajigs"--her special treasures. But her twin brother Jimmy won't stop touching them, and Janet wants her thingamajigs all to herself. Their mother is at her wits end--until the arrival of two grown-up surprises saves the day. Full color.
Editors Note 2 When twins Jimmy and Janet squabble over Janet's collection of "thingamajigs" their mom presents them with a "grown-up" surprise and Janet's collection becomes a thingamajig of the past. "The softly colored illustrations neatly catch the spirit of this slice of real life."--Kirkus Reviews.
