Meet Ramona Quimby. She lives on Klickitat Street in NE Portland. She's incredibly imaginative, boisterous, at times even exasperating, but always fun. She's beginning third grade where she discovers school is about to become a lot more serious. At home things are getting more challenging too. Her father is fired from his job and returns to college to find another career. Ramona and her big sister Beezus narrate this poignant story of a middle class Portland family in transition. Along the way they don't always get along, but they learn that relying on one another and their family is the best way to overcome life's bumps in the road. Based on stories by Beverly Cleary, Oregon's most famous children's author, Ramona Quimby will appeal to the many generations of readers who have loved this charming pest.
