By: Beverly Cleary
Ramona Quimby is seven and a half--"right now," as she likes to say. She's growing up every day and that brings many changes, including new pajamas so cozy that Ramona wears them under her clothes to school. But even though Ramona's getting bigger, she sometimes feels left out of the more grown-up relationship between her older sister, Beezus, and their busy working mom. Mrs. Quimby tells friends she "couldn't get along without Beezus," but does this mean she doesn't need Ramona? With affectionate humor, Beverly Cleary shows Ramona--and us--just how much her mother loves her.
