Ramona Quimby is the youngest of all the famous characters in Mrs. Cleary’s wonderful Henry Huggins stories. She is also far and away the most deadly. Ramona has always been a menace to her older sister Beezus, to Henry, and to Henry’s dog Ribsy. It isn’t that Ramona deliberately sets out to make trouble for others—she simply has more imagination than is healthy for any one person.

Beezus tries to be patient with four-year-old Ramona, but it isn’t easy, not when Ramona powders her nose with marshmallows and invites her nursery school class to a party without telling her family. Sometimes Beezus doesn’t like Ramona, but the girls are sisters, and that means they will always love each other—just not every single minute.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Miss Cleary’s wit is accurate and irresistible.” 

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Stockard Channing reads with empathy for both Beezus and Ramona. The listener feels compassion for Beezus, who is somewhat whiny and put upon, while secretly rooting for Ramona, who is endearing yet exasperating. Channing makes this series new for another generation of listeners.”

    " I thought that Beezus and Ramona was the best one yet for all the Ramona's that I read yet. It was pretty funny when Ramona was saying that if you can have jelly on bread than why can't I have jelly on my mashed potatoes. I thought about that but that would taste pretty weird. "

About the Author
Author Beverly Cleary

Beverly Cleary was born in McMinnville, Oregon, and until she was old enough to attend school she lived on a farm in Yamhill, a town so small it had no library. Her mother arranged to have books sent to their tiny town from the state library and acted as a librarian in a room over a bank. It was there that Mrs. Cleary learned to love books. Generations of children have grown up with Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, Ralph Mouse, and all of their friends, families, and assorted pets. Beverly Cleary continues to capture the hearts and imaginations of children of all ages throughout the world.
