9780688217211: Ramona the Pest (Ramona Quimby)

Ramona Quimby is excited to start kindergarten. No longer does she have to watch her older sister, Beezus, ride the bus to school with all the big kids. She's finally old enough to do it too!

Then she gets into trouble for pulling her classmate's boingy curls during recess. Even worse, her crush rejects her in front of everyone. Beezus says Ramona needs to quit being a pest, but how can she stop if she never was trying to be one in the first place?

Newbery Medal winning author Beverly Cleary expertly depicts the trials and triumphs of growing up through a relatable heroine in Ramona Quimby.

Supports the Common Core State Standards

Review:

The engaging tale of young Ramona Quimby's first days in kindergarten, Ramona the Pest takes a pint-sized perspective on the trials and delights of beginning school. Ramona can't wait to learn all the important things. But she's disappointed when her teacher can't fill in missing parts of story lines, such as how Mike Mulligan (of Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel) went to the bathroom while digging the basement of the town hall. Nonetheless, Ramona loves her teacher, and loves going to school in spite of the torments--having to wear hand-me-down boots, for example, or having to (sometimes) suppress the urge to pull on another girl's "boing-boing" curls. Ramona's energetic take on life appeals to children who have passed through this stage, or who are dealing with a kindergarten-age sibling who is exhibiting Ramona-ish tendencies. (Ages 7 to 12) --Richard Farr

From the Back Cover:

Ramona has been waiting years just to get to kindergarten, and once she's there she wants everyone to know it. She pretends to snore during quiet time to prove what a good rester she is. She yanks on prissy classmate Susan's curls—not to be mean, but because their "boinginess" is so tempting. And she gleefully plays the baddest witch on Halloween.

Big sister Beezus and others call her Ramona the Pest. Perhaps they don't understand that a littler person sometimes has to be "a little bit noisier and a little bit more stubborn in order to be noticed at all."

Beloved author Beverly Cleary documents Ramona's hilarious—and heartwarming—struggles to make her way in a perplexing world. With gloriously fresh illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers created for this new edition, Ramona the Pest is the perfect tale for the spirited five-year-old in all of us.
