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?
"Cleary shows us life through Ramona's eyes and shows her young readers that they are not alone." --Kirkus Review
