Republication of this classic title, featuring new art and cover, celebrates the August 1999 release of the first Ramona book in 15 years, "Ramona's World." In this reissue, there's a lot going on in the Quimby house and everything around Ramona seems to be changing. Just when it seems everything has gone wrong, Ramona steps up to save the day.
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
The further adventures of Ramona Quimby and her friends, who live on Klickitat Street. In this book changes abound for the Quimby family--Ramona and her sister, Beezus, are allowed to stay by themselves after school rather than going to the sitter, their dad graduates from college and begins looking for a job as an art teacher, and their mom announces that she is pregnant. Illustrated with B&W drawings.
"Guess what?" Ramona Quimby asked one Friday evening when Aunt Beatrice dropped by to show off her new ski clothes and to stay for supper. Ramona's mother, father, and big sister Beezus, whose real name was Beatrice, paid no attention and went on eating.
Ramona's year in third grade is highlighted by the arrival of Howie's rich uncle, a change in her after-school situation, a surprise wedding, a death and a new arrival in the family, and her father's getting a job.
