Review:

Second grade is not turning out the way it should for Ramona Quimby. Her dad has lost his job, her mom has found a full-time job, and her big sister Beezus has "reached a difficult age." In her inimitable way, Ramona decides to take charge. She practices TV commercials in hopes of earning a million dollars, but only ends up insulting her teacher and getting into a prickly mess with some burrs. Then she embarks on a campaign to make her father stop smoking. Mr. Quimby manages to hold up under all these strains, but the challenge is on for the whole family to prove their mettle.

Once again, Beverly Cleary proves her own mettle in this touching and hilarious Newbery Honor Book. Beloved author of over two dozen children's books, and recipient of many awards, including another Newbery Honor for Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and a Newbery Medal for Dear Mr. Henshaw, Cleary's instinct for children's jumbled emotions is flawless. Alan Tiegreen's adroit line drawings perfectly complement Cleary's style; it's hard to imagine one without the other. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter

From the Back Cover:

Ramona Quimby's cozy seven-year-old world changes when her father unexpectedly loses his job. Quickly, Ramona resolves to do her part to help make ends meet, but her grand plan to star in a TV commercial backfires!

Despite Ramona's efforts to keep her father—and her family—cheerful, weeks go by as Mr. Quimby is unable to find work, and bills and worries pile up. As Christmas approaches, Ramona crosses out every item on her wish list, keeping only "one happy family" as her heart's desire.

Beverly Cleary's Ramona and Her Father is a Newbery Honor Book and has been called "true, warm-hearted, and funny" by ALA Booklist. In this glowing edition with lively new illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers, Ramona's spunky, generous spirit shines.
