Enhance your purchase
Newbery Medal-winning author Beverly Cleary lovingly chronicles the ups and downs of elementary school woes. This is perfect for fans of Clementine.
For a girl as enthusiastic about life as Ramona, starting the first grade should be easy! But with a teacher who doesn't understand her, a tattletale classmate, and a scary dog who follows her on the walk home from school, Ramona has a hard time acting like the big girl everyone expects her to be.
But when she shows up to school with a missing shoe, Ramona gets a fresh grip on her courage in order to make it through a mortifying situation.
Ramona the Brave is a wonderful choice for independent reading, sharing in the classroom, homeschooling, and book groups. Readers ages 6-12 will laugh and relate to Ramona's timeless adventures.

From the Back Cover
Bravely and fearlessly, Ramona Quimby approaches first grade, but in short order she's upset by her mother's return to work, a teacher who doesn't understand her, and what appear to be monsters under the bed. What else could possibly go wrong?
Well, plenty. Whether she's proudly defending older sister Beezus from the taunts of sixth-grade boys or enduring a copycat classmate, Ramona has never felt so misunderstood. Will she give in to her frights--or will she exhibit the spunk her family warmly believes she possesses?
Beverly Cleary draws a loving portrait of a little girl learning to face down her fears. With lively new illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers, this vibrant edition of Ramona the Brave is a delight.
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 disliked how the author has too much characters with problems.
