Ramona Quimby, Age 8 by Beverly Cleary
Ramona feels quite grown-up taking the bus by herself, helping big sister Beezus make dinner, and trying hard to be nice to pesky Willa Jean after school. Turning eight years old and entering the first grade can do that to a girl. So how can her teacher call her a nuisance?
My Thoughts: If you are past the age of 8 and have not read this, you have missed something very, very important as well as wonderful! Everyone should know Ramona, and this book captures her vibrant, very real personality the best. I'm still not a huge fan on these new covers, but it's probably nostalgia that is holding me back.
