To the delight of Ramona Quimby readers everywhere, Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary has just made Ramona’s world a little bit bigger.

As she starts the fourth grade, Ramona believes that this year will be “the best year of her life, so far.” She can show off her calluses from swinging on the rings in the park; the boy she calls Yard Ape sits across the aisle from her; her teacher praises her writing; and she has a new baby sister, Roberta. But best of all, she has a new best friend, Daisy.

Little does Ramona know the challenges her fourth-grade year has in store for her. Not only must she improve her rotten spelling, but she must also be a good role model for baby Roberta. And her mother wants her to spend more time with the awful Susan.

Life isn’t easy, especially when she is surrounded by perfect spellers and everyone praises her big sister, Beezus, for being responsible. Sometimes Ramona fails, often with hilarious results. But with the support of family and friends, she discovers something reassuring: that being imperfect can be perfectly fine.

    " let's say 2.5 stars. this is a relatively new one, so not one i read when i was 7 or 8. she is in 4th grade in this installment, so far less bratty than the earlier Kindergarten books. "

    " I am loving reading these over again with Alexia. She is very un-Ramona like, but loves to read about her antics and her relationships with others. Her favorite part of this book was when Ramona wanted whipcream instead of cake for her birthday. "

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. Cleary continues to capture the hearts and imaginations of children of all ages throughout the world.
