Amazon.com Review

Nine-year-old Beezus Quimby has her hands full with her little sister, Ramona. Sure, other people have little sisters that bother them sometimes, but is there anyone in the world like Ramona? Whether she's taking one bite out of every apple in a box or secretly inviting 15 other 4-year-olds to the house for a party, Ramona is always making trouble--and getting all the attention. Every big sister can relate to the trials and tribulations Beezus must endure. Old enough to be expected to take responsibility for her little sister, yet young enough to be mortified by every embarrassing plight the precocious preschooler gets them into, Beezus is constantly struggling with her mixed-up feelings about the exasperating Ramona.

There's no one in the world like Beverly Cleary, either. This terrifically popular author of over two dozen children's books has withstood the test of time for generations, as her many awards, including the Newbery Medal, attest. Two books in the Ramona series, Ramona and Her Father and Ramona Quimby, Age 8, were also named Newbery Honor Books. Louis Darling's wonderful ink illustrations are the kind that will stay with a reader for a lifetime. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Back Cover

Four-year-old Ramona Quimby has an imagination that often leads to unintended trouble. She mortifies older sister Beezus at the library; disrupts an entire art class; and one rainy day, invites all her neighborhood friends over for a party'without even asking her mother.

Sometimes Beezus can be patient with Ramona. After all, they are sisters. But when Ramona almost ruins Beezus's birthday, it's the last straw. Beezus knows she ought to love Ramona'but how can she get along with someone so exasperating?

In this tale of two sisters, Beverly Cleary writes with sympathy for Beezus and affection for Ramona. Newly illustrated by Jacqueline Rogers, Beezus and Ramona proves that the Quimby girls don't have to be alike in order to be unforgettable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boomer trash
By Matt on October 4, 2021
The characters in these books are a bad influence. Ramona's behavior throughout the series is absolutely abysmal. Mopey, bratty, neglected, rude, you name it. But what more do you expect from a caricature of America's worst generation, the baby boomers. Ramona really is a microcosm of all the worst traits we've come to expect from that awful subset of Americans. Greedy, stingy, rude, selfish, entitled, the list goes on and on.

Do your family a favor and do not expose them to this drivel disguised as wholesome nostalgia. I had bought the entire series of these thinking they would be sweet to read to my daughter but boy was I wrong.

I literally threw them all in the trash where they belong. What a waste of money.
