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. "

    " last summer the library put out a list of 50 good books to read aloud as a family. We are going to see how many we can get through this summer. This was the second one on the list and so far the favorite. "

    " My daughter (6 years old) loves this book! It was her first chapter book and she read it all by herself with very little help from me. The character, Ramona, is very similar to my daughter which is why I think my daughter felt a strong rapport with Ramona. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Korrin | 6/14/2011

    " A cute story about how sisters learn to get along. I guess I'm just a bit more into a plot than just events streaming together, but it was cute. Watch the movie; it's great! "

    " My kids liked this one, I did not. It was dull beyond belief for me to read out loud. I am suprised my kids like it as much as they did given that I sounded half asleep when I read it! I don't think I ever read this one when I was younger. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margaret | 5/23/2011

    " I loved the Ramona books as a child, and always felt thankful I didn't have an annoying little sister myself. Having re-read it again as an adult, I found that it is a great reminder not to take the little annoyances in life so seriously... sometimes you just have to laugh about them. "
