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.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series, and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. Pre-order the official script book today. Kindle | Hardcover

Poor little Ramona is seven years old, and she gets into more trouble trying to be good than anyone I know...except when I was that age...
From wasting the toothpaste to wearing her wonderful new pajamas under her clothes to school, she certainly reminds us of our own childhood...(in my case it was shaving lather). I am online to find other Ramona books.
I bought this for my grand daughter. My daughter is an Air Force Police Officer and she was just deployed to Katar. My grand daughters birthday is March 15 she will be 8, so I thought the Ramona books would be perfect for her. My daughter was able to share "Ramona and her Mother" with my grand baby, in fact they finished the book the night before my daughter was deployed. I used to read these books to my girls when they were little and thought what a perfect memory to leave my grand daughter with. Not even realizing that I helped create a wonderful memormy for my daughter to take with her to Katar as well. This year has been especially tough on them; my daughters 2 month old son died of SIDS in August and found out she was deploying soon after. Thank you for getting these books to them on time in England. It means more these words could ever tell you.

These books are the best books there is. It's great for children who will enjoy the simplicity in the narration and the stories and the adventures. It's also great for adults. I found this book in here at Amazon.com., and I'm glad I did. I haven't read these books when I was young but I'm happy I found them now.
After reading them, I found myself thinking back to my childhood and it also helped me remember a few things like how I used to think when I was in that age. lol! Beverly Cleary wrote these books so well it's as if she wrote as she grew along with Ramona.
I also love the new illustrations by Tracy Dockray because it shows an updated look on today's kids which they can identify and it looks so much better.
I totally recommend the volume 1 and 2 of Ramona by Beverly Cleary. :D
