Written by Beverly Cleary • Illustrated by Louis Darling

This story is about a girl named Ramona who is a pest. She is five. She hollers to get stuff. She goes to kindergarten and tries to drop out of school. She makes her Q's like cats with whiskers. She has a crush on her classmate Davy, and tries to kiss him. She is always getting into trouble.

My favorite part is when Ramona gets stuck in the mud with her new boots. That was hilarious! Henry Huggins gets her out of the mud. I liked the character Ramona best because she hollers to get stuff. She gets it too! I like the illustrations a lot. I like the picture when Ramona gets stuck in the mud with her new boots on. It really showed how she felt.

I recommend this book because it is very funny! It makes you laugh out loud. I think that kids in third grade and up can read it on their own.
