At last Beverly Cleary has given Ramona Quimby a book of her own. No longer is she the shy nemesis of Henry Huggins or the exasperating responsibility of Beezus. Instead she is a five-year-old with spirit—and a rare opportunity to explain her side of things.

Ramona is thrilled to be starting kindergarten. She likes a little boy named Davy so much she wants to kiss him, and she loves Susan’s beautiful curls so much she wants to pull them to see them boing. Her teacher even promises her a present just for sitting still! So how does Ramona get in trouble? Well, anyone who knows Ramona knows that she is never a pest on purpose.

Nothing seems quite so funny to children as the tales of what they did when they were little. Here then is a hilarious account of kindergarten days for those who have passed that awkward stage.

Stockard Channing channels Ramona’s energy, humor, and enthusiasm to perfection, and the happy ending will calm the fears of listeners worried about the next school year.”

    School Library Journal

  • “The conjunction of belly laugh and basal emotion puts this on a par with the best in the series.”

    " Ramona is a bit like Junie B. Jones--she's a kindergartner who doesn't like to do what she is told and seems to get into trouble with no trouble at all. I like to read "Seat Work" where Ramona chases Davy so she can try to kiss him. This is great to read right before Valentine's Day. "
