Ramona Quimby, Age 8

Author: Beverly Cleary

First line: Ramona Quimby hoped that her parents would forget to give her a little talking-to.

Why you should read this book: Incorrigible, exuberant Ramona is back, and now that she's in third grade and her father is in school to be a teacher, there are more obstacles than ever. Can she get along with her sister, best the class bully, learn to cook, and impress her teacher without looking like a show-off? The Quimby family must work to overcome the hundreds of little stressors that threaten to turn them from a nice family into a not-so-nice one.

Why you shouldn't read this book: Your teacher has already assigned you another, less interesting book on which to write your book report.
