About the Author

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.

This book, like any Ramona Quimby book, is funny, touching, and heartfelt. Cleary is a great author who writes for children in an honest, humorous way. I've loved these books for years, and as an adult, they are still good.

This story has a very good storyline. I think that this is one of the best books ever written, because it always puts me in a good mood when I read about Ramona. I have been reading all Ramona books since I was very young and I have always and will always love them.

"Cant get along without my Beezus," was a quote from Mrs.Quimby one day when they were having brunch. It kinda set off a bomb. Cause' Ramona felt jelouse. One of my favorite parts in this book was the GREAT HAIR ARGUMENT. I also liked when they forgot to turn on the crock-pot and Mr. and Mrs. Quimby get into an argument. Ramona and her mother is a heart warming story about a girl and her mom. At the end Ramona fells like her teacher betrayed her because she left her pajamas at school and she thought the teacher told her mom so Ramona tries to run away. In the movie I think seleana gomez totaly pulled it off. That is my opinion

I thought this was a really great book. It teaches kids that even though it may seem like no one likes you, they really do care.

This book returns to the hilarity of earlier Ramona books. The first chapter with Willa Jean making a mess with the tissues had me laughing out loud

Ramona's big sister Beezus is now a pre-teen, and she wants a commercial haircut so badly that she saves up her allowance to go to a beauty school. Only the person she wanted to cut her hair has graduated, and she's stuck with a guy who doesn't know what he's doing, and winds up with an ugly bouffant! I felt so bad for her as she weeps in her mother's arms afterward. Even Ramona wants to cry, seeimg her sister so unhappy! When you're Beezus's age, a bad hairstyle really does seem like the end of the world.
