Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary expertly depicts the trials and triumphs of growing up through a relatable heroine who isn't afraid to be exactly who she is.

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?

About the Author

Beverly Cleary is one of America's most beloved authors. As a child, she struggled with reading and writing. But by third grade, after spending much time in her public library in Portland, Oregon, she found her skills had greatly improved. Before long, her school librarian was saying that she should write children's books when she grew up.

Instead she became a librarian. When a young boy asked her, "Where are the books about kids like us?" she remembered her teacher's encouragement and was inspired to write the books she'd longed to read but couldn't find when she was younger. She based her funny stories on her own neighborhood experiences and the sort of children she knew. And so, the Klickitat Street gang was born!

Mrs. Cleary's books have earned her many prestigious awards, including the American Library Association's Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, presented to her in recognition of her lasting contribution to children's literature. Dear Mr. Henshaw won the Newbery Medal, and Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and Ramona and Her Father have been named Newbery Honor Books. Her characters, including Beezus and Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, and Ralph, the motorcycle-riding mouse, have delighted children for generations.

Jaqueline Rogers has been a professional children's book illustrator for more than twenty years and has worked on nearly one hundred children's books.

I could often be found with a 'Ramona' book as a young child. Having a young daughter of my own now, I am anxious to share all of Ramona's adventures with her. I highly recommend this series to both the young and old alike!

My 9 year old did not always enjoy reading the 30 minutes a day her school requires, until I gave her Beezus and Ramona, and now Ramona the Pest on my Nook. Beverly Cleary is timeless.

I love Ramona because every kid can relate to her. She means well, but is misunderstood. She tries to be good, but can't compete with her perfect older sister, Beezus. I love all the Ramona books!

I read Ramona the Pest by Beverly Cleary. I think this book was really good. The stroy mainly takes place at Ramona's school. Ramona is finally old enough to go to school. She becomes a big fan of Mrs. Benny, her kindergarden teacher. Ramona loves Mrs. Benny. She looks forward to going to school just so that she can see Mrs. Benny, and try to kiss Davy!!! Ramona likes him, but i dont think that he has come to the stage where he wants to have anything to do with girls yet. Ramona thinks that school is the best thing that can ever happen. She is so excited because she can finally walk to school, and she can finally do the things that the 'big' kids do. I think that this was a really good book, and I give the story five stars.
