From the Publisher:
Ramona Quimby is off to kindergarten, in the republication of Cleary's classic title, featuring new art and cover. The August 1999 release celebrates the first Ramona book in 15 years, "Ramona's World."Ramona is off to kindergarten, and it's the greatest day of her life. So why is she sitting on the bench while the rest of the students play the game gray duck? Laughs and minor upsets abound in an enormously popular story starring the one and only Ramona Quimby!
Annotation:
Ramona Quimby can't wait to get to kindergarten, but when she arrives she finds it incredibly confusing. The teacher tells her to sit in her seat "for the present," but the present never comes. During recess, she finds herself stuck on a bench while the other kids get to play games--just because she couldn't resist pulling on another girl's curls to see them go "boing." This is the first book starring the rascally Ramona.
Author Bio
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.

Praise

Booklist
"Children a few years older than Ramona will respond with immediate recognition to her humorous experiences and escapades."

(unknown)
"Extremely funny, chapter after chapter...the author has again entered a small child's world and interpreted it with love and understanding and a fine sense of comedy."
