About the Author

Beverly Cleary is one of America''s most beloved authors. As a child, she struggled with reading and writing. But by third grade, after spending much time in her public library in Portland, Oregon, she found her skills had greatly improved. Before long, her school librarian was saying that she should write children''s books when she grew up.

Instead she became a librarian. When a young boy asked her, "Where are the books about kids like us?" she remembered her teacher''s encouragement and was inspired to write the books she''d longed to read but couldn''t find when she was younger. She based her funny stories on her own neighborhood experiences and the sort of children she knew. And so, the Klickitat Street gang was born!

Mrs. Cleary''s books have earned her many prestigious awards, including the American Library Association''s Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, presented to her in recognition of her lasting contribution to children''s literature. Dear Mr. Henshaw won the Newbery Medal, and Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and Ramona and Her Father have been named Newbery Honor Books. Her characters, including Beezus and Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, and Ralph, the motorcycle-riding mouse, have delighted children for generations.



Jaqueline Rogers has been a professional children''s book illustrator for more than twenty years and has worked on nearly one hundred children''s books.

My daughter loved this collection. In the week after it arrived, she read 5 of the books in the set, and I was sorta peeved at first. I know it’s great that my daughter reads, especially in this modern era, but books aren’t free. (I don’t trust her with library books. She loves her books a little too well.) So I’m always hoping that it occupies her for awhile. And that’s where this set earns its 5* rating. Most of the books in my daughter’s bookcase are “one and done” sorta books. You spend $20-30 on a boxed set and she blazes through them and they get retired to their place of honor, never to be touched again and certainly never to be donated, traded or recycled. So the stack grows, and more bookcases get constructed.

However, not with Ramona. Over the past weeks and months, I have seen her reading and rereading Ramona’s exploits. It’s not uncommon to hear spontaneous bursts of laughter as my daughter explains how Ramona thinks that carpet is a pet that lives in a car. The books are engaging for my 8-year old voracious reader. She relates with the characters and their struggles and sees a piece of herself in both Ramona and her older sister Beezus. It’s obvious that Ms. Cleary’s sense of humor resonates with my daughter, and now the author has the honored place at my daughter’s literary dinner party.

“Mom, if I had a dinner party and I invited all of my favorite authors, Beverly Cleary would have a seat next to Ursula K. LeGuin.”

I read these books as a child, and now I just got them to read to my 5 year old. I was getting bored reading picture books to my daughter, and I thought this might change up the routine a little bit. I have been reading these to her, and she LOVES them. She loves the stories about Ramona and her antics. Even thought she can''t read them herself yet, she loves when I read to her, and these really are the perfect thing to read to a 5 year old. I love it because I get a little more storyline than the usual nightly picture-book, and I think it''s great for her reading comprehension abilities as well. Highly recommended.

So, Beverly Cleary died a few weeks ago, and suddenly my news feeds were full of references to Ramona. I love children''s literature and know most of the popular works well, so I was dismayed to realize that I had never read any of the Ramona books. This complete collection was available for Kindle, so I got it and read the whole thing from cover to cover.

Well, they''re good. *Of course* they''re good. People have been loving and praising Ramona for decades. But they weren''t quite what I expected. From reading my friends enthusiasm about Ramona, I expected her to be a kind of wild and crazy kid, a child Lucy Ricardo. (For those too young to remember, Lucy Ricardo was the central character of the TV show I Love Lucy, played by Lucille Ball. I''m guess even the young folks will have heard of I Love Lucy -- if not, google it.)

But she''s not. Ramona is a very ordinary kid. Yes, she has a lot of imagination, and yes, she''s not superenthusiastic about traditional girl''s play, and yes, she gets in trouble with her teachers and parents at times. But all of that is quite ordinary. And that''s what makes Ramona great. She is believable and relatable. You cannot imagine yourself as Lucy Ricardo, probably. But you can imagine yourself as Ramona, or her sister Beezus (nickname for Beatrice) or her parents. It''s a real look at the inside of a 4-year-old''s or 10-year-old''s head and heart.

Great Box Set
Reviewed in the United States on September 13, 2017
It''s expensive for a children''s book set, but it has the complete series of all 8 Ramona books. The box set is perfect as a gift, as well as a good storage holder for the books. I bought it for my daughter because I used to read the Ramona books when I was a little girl.

I''m in my 70s but read Beezus & Ramona as a kid.
The sequels didn''t come along until I was grown. I saw the movie a few years ago and decided I''d better read the sequels, but forgot about it until the publicity over Mrs. Cleary''s death last spring. The stories are great; every bit as interesting as Beezus & Ramona and sometimes even more so as life evolves in the Quimby household. We go year by year through the the struggles of the two girls and their parents, the death of their cat, the birth of a new baby and Aunt Beatrice''s wedding - and Ramona isn''t such a little girl any more - but
always manages to get into
some sort of trouble.

I read Ramona the Pest when i was around 9 years old and it''s one of the books that has really stayed with me. Reading it as an adult to my 5 year old is thoroughly enjoyable. SO funny and well observed,it''s a pleasure to read.when i saw this boxed set it was a must-buy. I personally preferred the original illustrations, but that is a minor point. All the books are wonderful. Maybe of more appeal to girls around 8 plus for in dependant reading though my 10 year old son enjoyed. I do recommend reading these aloud to your child though - otherwise you ''ll be missing a treat!
