It's a time of change for all the Quimbys; a time of new joys and little sadnesses, too. There are new worries -- Mr Quimby is worried about finding a teaching job, Ramona is worried they may have to move if he does, and Beezus is worried about her teenage complexion.

Ramona is starting third grade, Beatrice is starting junior high, and Mr. Quimby has gone back to school to become an art teacher. Ramona's family depends on her to put up with staying at the Kemps' after school. But Willa Jean is not the only difficulty in Ramona's life...
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?
Nothing seems to be going Ramona's way this year. She has to brave her first grade, her mom returns to work and she has to sleep through the spooky dark all alone. From a fierce dog on the sidewalk to a copycat in her classroom her hands are full and she's determined to make it.
In this touching and funny story, the ebullient Ramona, feeling brave and grown-up, enters first grade. Quickly she finds that her new teacher, Mrs. Griggs, appears perplexed by pupils who like to be different. Since Ramona cannot help being different, clearly the two are incompatible.Nevertheless, Ramona can be counted on to keep things lively. Enraged when Susan copies her wise old owl prepared for Parents' Night and receives praise for it, Ramona rebels. Overcome by guilt and no longer brave, she tries mightily thereafter to please her teacher, but still Mrs. Griggs infuriatingly reports home that Ramona lacks self-control. Only because she is a girl with spunk, to use her father's word, does Ramona's courage return, earning her at last an uneasy truce with the teacher.Beverly Cleary draws here a portrait of a little girl discovering with astonishment that the way others see her is not always the way she sees herself. In the contrast lie moments of emerging self-knowledge for Ramona and of delicious hilarity for the reader.
Ramona is off to kindergarten, and it's the greatest day of her life. So why is she sitting on the bench while the rest of the students play the game gray duck? Laughs and minor upsets abound in an enormously popular story starring the one and only Ramona Quimby!
Growing up just wouldn't be the same without Beverly Cleary's ever-popular Ramona! Young readers delight in Ramona's trials and triumphs as she makes her way through the early years of elementary school. Children watch Ramona mature in the ways she handles relationships at home and at school. Witty, wise, and uplifting, these books will remain favorites for years to come.
