Ramona Quimby, Age 8 (Ramona Quimby, Bk 6)
Ramona Quimby Age 8 - Ramona Quimby, Bk 6 Author:Beverly Cleary, Tracy Dockray (Illustrator) Ramona feels quite grown-up taking the bus by herself, helping big sister Beezus make dinner, and trying hard to be nice to pesky Willa Jean after school. Turning eight years old and entering the first grade can do that to a girl. So how can her teacher call her a nuisance?
Neither of my kids could get thru this. It's classic stuff, but not to their tastes. Ramona has a series of maniac misadventures which in my opinion read better than Junie B. Jones. Not that I'm a big favor of either, myself.
My kids say:
"Ramona is in third grade and does not like a certain person. I didn't really like it because it didn't catch my attention. So if you're interested in Junie B Jones, you might be interested in this."
