Having a little sister like four-year-old Ramona isn't always easy for Beezus Quimby. With a wild imagination, disregard for order, and an appetite for chaos, Ramona makes it hard for Beezus to be the responsible older sister she knows she ought to be…especially when Ramona threatens to ruin Beezus's birthday party. Newbery Medal winner Beverly Cleary delivers a humorous tale of the ups and downs of sisterhood. Both the younger and older siblings of the family will enjoy this book.

"An important reminder of the good that can come when you throw yourself fully into any situation and draw outside the lines," says in their article "12 Girls from Fiction Who Are Their Own Heroes."

                Ramona is the mischievous main character who does lots of crazy things that are fun to read about. I liked that Ramona had other books as she got older. For example, in Ramona The Pest, she is adorable 😁. But in Ramona Quimby, Age 8, things get a little more interesting and less adorable 😏.

                  Not as good when you get older. But it always be a memorable story read as a little kid. A tale between two sisters, making you cherish having one.
