Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

From the first day of third grade, when Ramona Quimby meets her eventual nemesis Yard Ape, life moves on at its usual wild pace--usual for the boisterous Ramona, that is. Soon she is accidentally squashing a raw egg into her hair at the school cafeteria, being forced to play Uncle Rat with her annoying young neighbor, and, worst of all, throwing up in her classroom. The responsibilities of an 8-year-old are sometimes daunting, especially in a family that is trying to squeak by while the father goes back to school. But Ramona is full of too much vim and vigor to ever be down for long.

In her second Newbery Honor Book about Ramona (the first was Ramona and Her Father), Beverly Cleary presents another slice of the Quimby family life. Author of more than two dozen children's books, Cleary has a true knack for understanding the tangle of thoughts and emotions in a child's mind and heart. Empathic, witty, and astute, she has earned many other awards, including the Newbery Medal for Dear Mr. Henshaw. Alan Tiegreen's clever line drawings have charmed countless readers of Cleary's books over the years, and his style is now inextricably tied to hers. (Ages 8 to 12) --Emilie Coulter --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars A parent's review
By Leib Gershon Mitchell on October 11, 2020
I read this book a long time ago, when I was a child.

Recently, I have reread it in my quest to build a set of books that are modest and suitable for my children.

This book passes the test with flying colors

It is all three: modest, conservative, and kosher.

There are very few details in the text that would date the book, and it is 8-year-olds acting like 8-year-olds (not like anguished middle-aged alcoholics, as are so popular for characters in children's fiction these days).

A lot of the things are also for parents, because many of the situations in the book probably resonate with our own experience of raising children.

This book is a Newberry award winner, and it is just as good as/advisable to read with "Ramona and her Father."

Verdict: Recommended highly, even at the new price. (Is not that you would need to buy a new copy, because there are millions of secondhand copies in existence owing to the popularity of this book.)

Also, the Hebrew version of this book is available.
