Sobre l'autor

Beverly Cleary was born on April 12, 1916. Her family lived on a small farm in McMinnville, Oregon, before moving to Portland. Ironically, this internationally known author of children's books struggled to learn how to read when she entered school. Before long however Cleary had learned to love mostra'n més books, and as a child she spent a good deal of her time in the public library. Cleary attended Chaffey Junior College in Ontario, Ca. and went on to earned her first B.A. in 1938 from the University of California at Berkeley. Her second degree, a B.A. in library science, was bestowed by the University of Washington in Seattle in 1939. She worked for a short time as Children's Librarian in Yakima, Washington, before moving to California. Cleary began her writing career in her early thirties. Her first book, Henry Huggins, was published in 1950. Her stories and especially her characters, Henry Huggins and Ramona Quimby, have proven popular with young readers. Her books have been translated into twenty languages and are available in over twenty countries. Some of her best-known titles are Ellen Tebbits (1951), Henry and the Paper Route (1957), Runaway Ralph (1970), and Dear Mr. Henshaw (1983). Several television programs have been produced from the Henry Huggins and Ramona stories. She also wrote two memoirs, A Girl from Yamhill (1988) and My Own Two Feet (1995). Cleary has won many awards for her contributions to children's literature, including the American Library Association's Laura Ingalls Wilder Award in 1975, the Catholic Library Association's Regina Medal in 1980, the John Newbery Medal in 1984 and the National Medal of Arts in 2003. Beverly Cleary died on March 25, 2021 in Carmel, California. She was 104 year old. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra'n menys

I haven't reread this series since I was a kid but revisiting them has been so delightful. Ramona Quimby is a literary icon. ❤️

Recently I was reminiscing about certain books from my childhood and decided to do a full reread of the Ramona series! I still know them all pretty well (from Picky-Picky to “which witch?”, the toothpaste tube to the cold crockpot argument) but just remember being SO delighted by all the antics Ramona got into that rereading them was too enticing to pass up.

My only real comment is that I think this first book is the weakest in the series simply because the reader doesn’t get to be directly in Ramona’s mind, BUT it does set up her world and introduce us to the Quimby family dynamics very well, so I’m not gonna fault it for that. Also, Aunt Beatrice DEFINITELY reads as queer in this! New 2021 head cannon for her.… (més)

This one and "Ramona and her Mother" and probably the two in the series I remembered most vividly, and neither of them disappoint on a reread. This final book feels like the perfect finale - it has a great mix of Ramona antics (the ceiling scene makes me cackle), her dealing with growing up, and classic Quimby family moments. I genuinely felt like crying when finishing this because it brought back how much these books meant to me as a kid. :,)
