Overview

Ramona Forever by Beverly Cleary, Jacqueline Rogers, Alan Tiegreen

Ramona is back! New and old friends alike will rejoice in Beverly Cleary's latest book about spunky Ramona and the whole Quimby family.

From the minute that Howie Kemp's rich Uncle Hobart arrives from Saudi Arabia, things are off to a rousing start. There are new beginnings and discoveries and two very special surprises - one surprise is big and one is very little.

It's a time of change for all the Quimbys; a time of new joys and little sadnesses, too. There are new worries - Mr Quimby is worried about finding a teaching job, Ramona is worried they may have to move if he does, and Beezus is worried about her teenage complexion.

And through it all Ramona, a grown up third-grader, remains a sometimes pesty, sometimes brave, sometimes blunderful, but always wonderful Ramona - forever!

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.

Maybe I like this book because it has serious sentimental value to me. It was the first 'chapter book' I got as a 5 year old, and my dad read it to me every night for a week. This book made me love reading, and introduced me to the character of Ramona. Simply put, this book is beyond mere words like 'funny' 'good' or 'awesome.' This book is still a favorite of mine, even though I'm now in college. Do yourself or your kids a favor and read it.

The book Ramona Forever was written by Beverly Cleary. This book is about a little girl who goes through a lot with her family. In my opinion the book was great! Very interesting and kept me interested. In Ramona forever Ramona and her best friend Howie go to his grand mothers after school everyday. When Howie's uncle and Ramona's aunt drops in things start to change. Ramona no longer wants to stay at Howie's grandmothers after school so Beezus, Ramona's sister comes home after school every day to watch her. Everything changes when there are a few members added to the family. In this story the main characters are Ramona, Beezus, Howie, Mr. and Mrs. Quimby, Hobart, Raberta and Willa jean. The Conflict in the story is all the different events and Ramona trying to fix all the problems The protagonist would have to be Ramona she does some bad things but she also does good things. She saves the day lots of times. Ramona is very important to this book because she helps with everything she can. She helps Willa jean with her present from Uncle Hobart; she helps her mother when she's pregnant. Her and Beezus have a funeral for their cat all by them self. She is just very important. This story reminds me of Junie b. Jones. Junie B. is just like Ramona. She wants to help with anything and everything. Junie B's Mom and Ramona's mom has a baby. All the characters resemble the other in all different kinds of ways. When I think of Ramona I also think of Junie B. My opinion of this book was great very interesting. I enjoyed reading this because I used to love Junie B Jones and this reminds me so much of it, but there were parts I did not like. I didn't like how it ended just kind of ended at a random part. Which I think the author should have did differently. I would most definitely recommend this to book to others because it is so unique in all kinds of ways like telling a story of peoples like in an all new way! I enjoyed it very much!!

there are no words that express the whay i feel about this book. it was happy then sad then happy then sad. but in the end you could see that all the sad things that happened the story was for the good of the Quimblys. i thought that i was wonderful that Ramona Quimbly's mother is going to have a baby. and that Ramona's aunt Breatrice is getting married to Howlie's Uncle, Uncle Herbert.

Great for children graduating from Junie B. Jones books( Parks) and after you read this you should read the Winnie Years( Myracle). So easy to relate to and there is no inapropiate content that parents may be against. Look for the movie starring Selena Gomez. Cleary also writes book for older children and has some autobiographies.
