To celebrate this timeless classic, Beverly Cleary’s Ramona Quimby, Age 8 can now be enjoyed as a read-aloud edition. With large type and oversized trim, this version will encourage vocal participation—whether at home, in school, or on one’s own!

Riding the school bus alone isn’t the only new experience making third grade exciting for Ramona Quimby. From befriending a boy called Yard Ape to delivering her book report in the style of a television commercial, Ramona’s enthusiasm for life is infectious and irresistible.

That’s not to say all is perfect. Mr. Quimby’s return to college means that the whole family must pitch in to make ends meet. Having to go to the Kemps’ house after school is Ramona’s own particular burden—especially the chore of being nice to pesky little Willa Jean. When Ramona gets sick and throws up in class, she feels as though things can’t get worse. But with all the pluck we’ve come to expect from Ramona, she emerges smiling with her head held high.

In this Newbery Honor Book, available now with an enlarged trim, easy-to-read text, and black-and-white illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers, Beverly Cleary lovingly chronicles Ramona Quimby’s memorable experiences.

Review:

From the first day of third grade, when Ramona Quimby meets her eventual nemesis Yard Ape, life moves on at its usual wild pace--usual for the boisterous Ramona, that is. Soon she is accidentally squashing a raw egg into her hair at the school cafeteria, being forced to play Uncle Rat with her annoying young neighbor, and, worst of all, throwing up in her classroom. The responsibilities of an 8-year-old are sometimes daunting, especially in a family that is trying to squeak by while the father goes back to school. But Ramona is full of too much vim and vigor to ever be down for long.

In her second Newbery Honor Book about Ramona (the first was Ramona and Her Father), Beverly Cleary presents another slice of the Quimby family life. Author of more than two dozen children's books, Cleary has a true knack for understanding the tangle of thoughts and emotions in a child's mind and heart. Empathic, witty, and astute, she has earned many other awards, including the Newbery Medal for Dear Mr. Henshaw. Alan Tiegreen's clever line drawings have charmed countless readers of Cleary's books over the years, and his style is now inextricably tied to hers. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter

From the Back Cover:

Riding the school bus alone isn't the only new experience making third grade exciting for Ramona Quimby. From befriending a boy called Yard Ape to delivering her book report in the style of a television commercial, Ramona's enthusiasm for life is infectious and irresistible.

That's not to say all is perfect. Having to go to the Kemps' house after school is Ramona's own particular burden especially the chore of being nice to pesky little Willa Jean. When Ramona gets sick and throws up in class, she feels as though things can't get worse!

In this Newbery Honor Book, newly illustrated by Jacqueline Rogers, Beverly Cleary lovingly chronicles Ramona's experiences as she faces all of her third-grade challenges with imagination and determination."
