Misunderstandings abound in Ramona Quimby's life. Even at the ripe old age of 8, she continues to find herself in trouble when she least expects it. It's a time of many changes: Ramona's friend Howie's rich uncle comes to visit from Saudi Arabia, her mother seems suspiciously fatter, and Aunt Beatrice begins dating a mystery man. It's more important than ever for Ramona and her big sister Beezus to be good, but there are so many opportunities to mess up!
Beverly Cleary has somehow managed to remember the intricate workings of a young girl's mind and heart. With several dozen children's books and many awards under her belt, she is one of America's most beloved authors. Winner of the Newbery Medal for Dear Mr. Henshaw, as well as the Newbery Honor for Ramona and Her Father and Ramona Quimby, Age 8, Cleary balances raucously funny childhood adventures with poignantly real circumstances and emotions. Alan Tiegreen's clever line drawings have faithfully accompanied many of Cleary's books over the years. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie CoulterFrom the Back Cover:
Ramona's third-grade year is off with a bang when Howie Kemp's rich uncle Hobart returns from abroad. From all the whispers between Mrs. Quimby and Ramona's aunt Beatrice, it's clear that the grown-ups have a secret—but whether it's to do with Uncle Hobart or Mrs. Quimby's suspicious tummy bulge remains to be seen.
Ramona has a lot on her mind: Beezus's teenage moods are driving everyone crazy, family pet Picky-picky hasn't been looking too well, and Mr. Quimby's new job offer might mean a big move. But all these worries vanish in the light of not one, but two exciting announcements.
Beverly Cleary's beloved Ramona Forever is as timeless as its title. In this new edition, with fresh, funny illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers, Ramona Geraldine Quimby is pesty, brave, blunderful, and wonderful—forever!
