Ramona Quimby, Age 8
Ramona is finally eight. Now she feels all grown up; all the first and second graders look up to her. Ramona still has problems, but she is determined to enjoy third grade.
Who hasn't read and re-read this series about imaginative Ramona with a propensity for trouble, her more mature older sister Beezus, her parents, always worried about budgeting, and Picky-Picky, the persnickety old cat? It doesn't matter how old you are when you read these; you're always transported back to the cares and concerns of a little girl, trying to do basically the right thing and combatting the injustices of the world in your own small way. These are great as read-alouds but just as enjoyable to read on your own. All volumes are paperback.
