Ramona Quimby, Age 8
Author: Beverly Cleary
Ramona, a pest, who is Beezus' sister and is a 3rd Grader.
Beezus, Ramona's older sister who is nice.
Picky-picky, the family's cat.
Ramona is just starting third grade. Her parents told her to be nice to Willa Jean after school; stuff like don't push and shove on the playground, all the usual. Ramona has one big problem at school, Yard Ape. His real name is Danny and he's in Mrs. Whaley's class, just like Ramona. One time Ramona gets egg in her hair, yoke and all, and goes to the office to wash it out. She hears her teacher say "nuisance" and she thinks that Mrs. Whaley is talking about her! Ramona does a book report in front of the class and forgets what to say at the end, so she says,"... I can't believe I read the whole thing!"
Did I enjoy this book? Yes, I enjoyed this book because it was funny and I like comedy. I would recommend this book for first and second grade readers because it is easy reading and is very funny.
