What is Beezus Quimby going to do with her little sister, Ramona? No matter how much she tries to be a patient older sister, Ramona is driving Beezus up the wall with her silly antics.

Ramona just can’t seem to stay out of trouble and Beezus has just about had it! Laugh out loud as you read about imaginative Ramona and her whacky adventures and her cool older sister who is losing her patience (and maybe her mind) by the second.

Back Text (Beezus and Ramona)

Beverly Cleary was born on April 12th, 1916 and lived on a farm in Yamhill, Oregon until she was old enough to attend school. Beverly loved books from a young age but struggled with reading once she entered grade school in Portland. She was determined to overcome her reading difficulties and by the time she reached the third grade was spending a great deal of her time in libraries and reading books, so much so that a librarian once told her she would become an author of children’s books someday.In 1934, she graduated with a B.A. in English from the University of California- Berkeley and then went on to earn an additional degree in librarianship in Seattle from the University of Washington. She eventually pursued a career as a librarian in Yakima, Washington and spent most of her time working with children. Beverly published her first book, Henry Huggins, in 1950 and has been widely acclaimed as one of the best authors of relatable, funny and simple stories that children around the world have grown to love. She earned the Newberry Medal in 1984 for Dear Mr. Henshaw and two of her books, Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and Ramona and Her Father, were Newberry Honor books. She is the winner of numerous national and international awards such as the American Library Association’s Laura Ingalls Wilder Award in 1975. She was named a “living legend” by the Library of Congress and at the age of ninety-nine is still one of the world’s most beloved children’s authors.
