Ramona the pest

                                                                 Ramona the pest
                                                                 By Beverly Cleary
Ramona is very annoying and she likes to be center of attention,and makes lots of noise. Miss Binney's  the best teacher ever in Ramonas eyes,and doesn't say words so kids understand her.
This book is an ordinary book in our times now.In this book very exited because today's her first day of prep.Also shes exited for Halloween and dresses up as a witch.Ramona thinks her teacher doesn't like her after trying to teach Davy how to write d's,Will her teacher forgive Ramona?My favorite part of this book was when Howie pulled the wheel off Ramona's trike so it was a two wheeler.
This book is really enjoyable.I think that the books of this series are too short.
I recommend this book to 7 year old's and up your garrenteed to love this book because its just a good book.                                                
Ramona the Pest (Ramona, #2)

 author Bio

Beverly Cleary was born in McMinnville, Oregon, and lived on a farm in Yam hill, a town so small it had no library. Her mother arranged with the State Library to have books sent to Yam hill and acted as librarian in a lodge room upstairs over a bank. There, Beverly learned to love books.
A Struggling Reader
When the family moved to Portland, where Beverly attended grammar school and high school, she soon found herself in the low reading circle, an experience that has given her sympathy for the problems of struggling readers. By the third grade she had conquered reading and spent much of her childhood either with books or on her way to and from the public library. Before long her school librarian suggested that she write books for children when she grew up. The idea appealed to her, and she decided that someday she would write the books she longed to read, but was unable to find on the library shelves — funny stories about her neighborhood and the sort of children she knew.
Career Path
After graduation from junior college in Ontario, California, and the University of California at Berkeley, Beverly entered the School of Librarianship at the University of Washington, Seattle. There she specialized in library work with children. She was the children's librarian in Yakima, Washington, until she married Clarence Cleary and moved to California. The Cleary's are the parents of twins, now grown.
Advice to Children
Beverly's hobbies are travel and needlework. When children ask Beverly where she finds her ideas, she replies, “From my own experience and from the world around me.” Henry Huggins, written when she was in her early thirties, was her first attempt at writing. Her advice to the many children who write asking for “tips” on writing is for them to read widely while growing up, and when the time comes for them to write, they will find their own way of writing and will not need tips to guide them.
