Meet the Author

Beverly Cleary

Beverly Cleary is one of America's most beloved authors. As a child, she struggled with reading and writing. But by third grade, after spending much time in her public library in Portland, Oregon, she found her skills had greatly improved. Before long, her school librarian was saying that she should write children's books when she grew up.

Instead she became a librarian. When a young boy asked her, "Where are the books about kids like us?" she remembered her teacher's encouragement and was inspired to write the books she'd longed to read but couldn't find when she was younger. She based her funny stories on her own neighborhood experiences and the sort of children she knew. And so, the Klickitat Street gang was born!

Mrs. Cleary's books have earned her many prestigious awards, including the American Library Association's Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, presented to her in recognition of her lasting contribution to children's literature. Dear Mr. Henshaw won the Newbery Medal, and Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and Ramona and Her Father have been named Newbery Honor Books. Her characters, including Beezus and Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, and Ralph, the motorcycle-riding mouse, have delighted children for generations.

Jaqueline Rogers has been a professional children's book illustrator for more than twenty years and has worked on nearly one hundred children's books.

Biography

Beverly Cleary was inadvertently doing market research for her books before she wrote them, as a young children’s librarian in Yakima, Washington. Cleary heard a lot about what kids were and weren’t responding to in literature, and she thought of her library patrons when she later sat down to write her first book.

Henry Huggins, published in 1950, was an effort to represent kids like the ones in Yakima and like the ones in her childhood neighborhood in Oregon. The bunch from Klickitat Street live in modest houses in a quiet neighborhood, but they’re busy: busy with rambunctious dogs (one Ribsy, to be precise), paper routes, robot building, school, bicycle acquisitions, and other projects. Cleary was particularly sensitive to the boys from her library days who complained that they could find nothing of interest to read – and Ralph and the Motorcycle was inspired by her son, who in fourth grade said he wanted to read about motorcycles. Fifteen years after her Henry books, Cleary would concoct the delightful story of a boy who teaches Ralph to ride his red toy motorcycle.

Cleary’s best known character, however, is a girl: Ramona Quimby, the sometimes difficult but always entertaining little sister whom Cleary follows from kindergarten to fourth grade in a series of books. Ramona is a Henry Huggins neighbor who, with her sister, got her first proper introduction in Beezus and Ramona, adding a dimension of sibling dynamics to the adventures on Klickitat Street. Cleary’s stories, so simple and so true, deftly portrayed the exasperation and exuberance of being a kid. Finally, an author seemed to understand perfectly about bossy/pesty siblings, unfair teachers, playmate politics, the joys of clubhouses and the perils of sub-mattress monsters.

Cleary is one of the rare children’s authors who has been able to engage both boys and girls on their own terms, mostly through either Henry Huggins or Ramona and Beezus. She has not limited herself to those characters, though. In 1983, she won the Newbery Medal with Dear Mr. Henshaw, the story of a boy coping with his parents’ divorce, as told through his journal entries and correspondence with his favorite author. She has also written a few books for older girls (Fifteen, The Luckiest Girl, Sister of the Bride, and Jean and Johnny) mostly focusing on first love and family relationships. A set of books for beginning readers stars four-year-old twins Jimmy and Janet.

Some of Cleary’s books – particularly her titles for young adults – may seem somewhat alien to kids whose daily lives don’t feature soda fountains, bottles of ink, or even learning cursive. Still, the author’s stories and characters stand the test of time; and she nails the basic concerns of childhood and adolescence. Her books (particularly the more modern Ramona series, which touches on the repercussions of a father’s job loss and a mother’s return to work) remain relevant classics.

Cleary has said in an essay that she wrote her two autobiographical books, A Girl from Yamhill and My Own Two Feet, "because I wanted to tell young readers what life was like in safer, simpler, less-prosperous times, so different from today." She has conveyed that safer, simpler era -- still fraught with its own timeless concerns -- to children in her fiction as well, more than half a century after her first books were released.

Good To Know

Word processing is not Cleary's style. She writes, "I write in longhand on yellow legal pads. Some pages turn out right the first time (hooray!), some pages I revise once or twice and some I revise half-a-dozen times. I then attack my enemy the typewriter and produce a badly typed manuscript which I take to a typist whose fingers somehow hit the right keys. No, I do not use a computer. Everybody asks."

Cleary usually starts her books on January 2.

Up until she was six, Cleary lived in Yamhill, Oregon -- a town so small it had no library. Cleary's mother took up the job of librarian, asking for books to be sent from the state branch and lending them out from a lodge room over a bank. It was, Clearly remembers, "a dingy room filled with shabby leather-covered chairs and smelling of stale cigar smoke. The books were shelved in a donated china cabinet. It was there I made the most magical discovery: There were books written especially for children!"

Cleary authored a series of tie-in books in the early 1960s for classic TV show Leave It to Beaver.

Cleary's books appear in over 20 countries in 14 languages.

Cleary's book The Luckiest Girl is based in part on her own young adulthood, when a cousin of her mother's offered to take Beverly for the summer and have her attend Chaffey Junior College in Ontario, California. Cleary went from there to the University of California at Berkeley.

The actress Sarah Polley got her start playing Ramona in the late ‘80s TV series. Says Cleary in a Q & A on her web site: “I won’t let go of the rights for television productions unless I have script approval. There have been companies that have wanted the movie rights to Ramona, but they won’t let me have script approval, and so I say no. I did have script approval for the television productions of the Ramona series…. I thought Sarah Polley was a good little actress, a real little professional.”

Read an Excerpt

CAPITULO I


El gran dia de Ramona


-Yo no soy ninguna chinche,- le dijo Ramona Quimby a su hermana mayor, Beezus.

-Pues entonces, deja de dar lata,- dijo Beezus, cuyo verdadero nombre era Beatrice, mientras esperaba, parada junto a la ventana del frente, a su amiga Mary Jane para ir juntas a la escuela.

-No estoy dando lata. Estoy cantando y saltando,- dijo Ramona, que acababa de aprender a saltar con los dos pies. Ramona no se consideraba chinche. A pesar de lo que dijeran los demás, jamás se consideró latosa. Los que la llamaban chinche o latosa eran siempre mayores que ella, de modo que podian ser injustos.

Ramona siguió cantando y bailando. "¡Este es un gran dia, un gran dia!" cantó. Y para Ramona, que se sentia un poco más crecida con su vestido en vez de su ropa de juego, éste era, en verdad, un gran dia, el dia más grande de toda su vida. Ya no tendria que sentarse en su triciclo a mirar a Beezus, Henry Huggins y todos los demás chiquillos del vecindario cuando iban para la escuela. Hoy ella también iria a la escuela. Hoy iba a aprender a leer y escribir y hacer todo lo que la haria alcanzar a Beezus.

-¡Anda, mami!- la urgió Ramona, dejando de cantar y bailar un momento.-¡No queremos llegar tarde a la escuela!

-No fastidies, Ramona,- dijo la Sra. Quimby. -Te llevarécon tiempo de sobra.

-No estoy fastidiando,- protestó Ramona, quien jamás tenia la intención de fastidiar. Es que ella no era un adulto lento. Era una chiquilla que no podia esperar. La vida era tan Interesanteque tenia que averiguar lo que pasaria después.

En eso llegó Mary Jane. -Sra. Quimby, y pudiéramos Beezus y yo llevar a Ramona al kindergarten?- preguntó.

-¡No!- dijo Ramona en el acto. Mary Jane era una de esas muchachas que siempre queria hacer de mamá y siempre queria que Ramona fuera su bebá. Nadie iba a pescar a Ramona haciendo de bebé, su primer dia de clases.

-¿Por qué no?- le preguntó la Sra. Quimby a Ramona. -Puedes ir con Beezus y Mary Jane, como una niña grande.

-No, no puedo. - A Ramona no la engañaban ni un segundo. Mary Jane le hablaria con esa vocecita tonta que usaba cuando hacia de mamá y la tomaria de la mano y la ayudaria a cruzar la calle y todo el mundo creeria que de verdad era una bebé.

-Por favor, Ramona, - la trató de engatusar Beezus. -Seria muy divertido llevarte y presentarte a la maestra del kindergarten.

-¡No!- dijo Ramona al tiempo que piso-teaba. Beezus y Mary Jane se divertirian pero ella no. Solamente un verdadero adulto la iba a llevar a la escuela. De ser necesario, armaria una griteria, y cuando Ramona armaba una griteria, generalmente conseguia lo que queria. A veces las griterias eran necesarias cuando se era la menor de la familia y la menor de toda la cuadra.

-Está bien, Ramona,- dijo la Sra. Quimby.

-Nada de griteria. Si no quieres, no tienes que ir con las muchachas. Yo te llevaré.

-Date prisa, mami,- dijo Ramona contenta, mientras veia a Beezus y Mary Jane salir por la puerta. Pero cuando Ramona pudo finalmente sacar a su mamá, de la casa, vio con mucho desagrado que una de las amigas de su mamá, la Sra. Kemp, venia con su hijo Howie y traia en un cochecito a la hermanita de éste, Willa Jean. -Date prisa, mami,- suplicó Ramona, que no queria que esperaran a los Kemp. Como las mamás eran amigas, se suponia que ella y Howie se debian llevar bien.

-¡Hola!- dijo la Sra. Kemp, de modo que lamamá, de Ramona tuvo que esperar.

Howie le clavó la mirada a Ramona. A él le gustaba tan poco tener que llevarse bien con ella como a ella con él.

Ramona también le clavó los ojos. Howie era un chiquillo robusto con cabello rubio encrespado. ("Qué lástima en un varón, "— decia a menudo su propia mamá.) Llevaba los pantalones de dril azul enrollados y tenia una camisa de mangas largas. No se le notaba el menor entusiasmo porque iba para el kindergarten. Eso era lo malo de Howie, pensó Ramona. El jamás se entusiasmaba por nada. Willa jean, con su cabello lacio, le interesaba más a Ramona porque era muy descuidada, escupia montones de migajas de galletas y se reia porque se creia muy lista.

-Hoy se me va mi bebé, - dijo la Sra. Quimby, con una sonrisa, cuando el grupito iba caminando por la calle Klickitat hacia la escuela Glenwood.

A Ramona, a quien le gustaba ser la bebé de su mamá, no le gustaba que la llamaran bebé, especialmente en presencia de Howie.

-Crecen muy rápido, observó la Sra. Kemp.

Ramona no podia entender por que- los mayores siempre hablaban de lo rápido que crecen los niños. A ella le parecia que el crecer era lo mas lento del mundo, peor aún que esperar la llegada de la Navidad. Ramona habia esperado durante añ só para ir al Kindergarten y la última media hora habia sido la parte más lenta de todas. Cuando el grupo llegó a la bocacalle más cercana a la escuela Glenwood, Ramona se alegró de ver a Henry Huggins, que era amigo de Beezus, de guardián de tránsito en esa esquina.

Después que Henry los hablia guiado Para cruzar la calle, Ramona corrió hacia el kindergarten, que estaba provisionalmente en un edificio de madera y que tenia su propio patio de juego. Las mamás y los chiquillos ya iban entrando por la puerta. Algunos de los chiquillos parecian , asustados y una niña estaba llorando.

-¡Ya es tarde! — dijo Ramona. — ¡Date prisa!.
