Ramona the Pest by Beverly Cleary

Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me.

Five Gold Stars

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

(Click the title to find the book description/blurb.)

My favorite book as a small child! I just “got” Ramona so well, with her plights and joys, and even back then, I could tell something was different about Cleary’s books, compared to the more modern children’s books I read. (Well, “modern” for the 80s and 90s.) I loved the old-fashioned feel of Ramona the Pest, and who could forget good ol’ Chevrolet and the “dawnzer” that gives a lee light? I read the book at least twice, but three or four times might be more accurate. Long live the Ramona series!

These are the editions of all the other Ramona books I’ve read, borrowed from my elementary school’s library, and I enjoyed every one of them. I heard tell years after I’d read all the books that a new one had been added to the series, Ramona’s World, published in 1999. I’m sure I’ll have to get my hands on that one as well, whenever I procure the series for my own library.
