Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this touching and funny story, the ebullient Ramona, feeling brave and grown-up, enters first grade. Quickly she finds that her new teacher, Mrs. Griggs, appears perplexed by pupils who like to be different. Since Ramona cannot help being different, clearly the two are incompatible.

Nevertheless, Ramona can be counted on to keep things lively. Enraged when Susan copies her wise old owl prepared for Parents' Night and receives praise for it, Ramona rebels. Overcome by guilt and no longer brave, she tries mightily thereafter to please her teacher, but still Mrs. Griggs infuriatingly reports home that Ramona lacks self-control. Only because she is a girl with spunk, to use her father's word, does Ramona's courage return, earning her at last an uneasy truce with the teacher.

Beverly Cleary draws here a portrait of a little girl discovering with astonishment that the way others see her is not always the way she sees herself. In the contrast lie moments of emerging self-knowledge for Ramona and of delicious hilarity for the reader.

Synopsis:

For a girl as enthusiastic about life as Ramona, starting the first grade should be easy! But with a teacher who doesn't understand her, a tattletale classmate, and a scary dog who follows her on the walk home from school, Ramona has a hard time acting like the big girl everyone expects her to be. But when she shows up to school with a missing shoe, Ramona gets a fresh grip on her courage in order to make it through a mortifying situation.

Newbery Medal winning author Beverly Cleary lovingly chronicles the ups and downs of elementary school woes. This is perfect for fans of Clementine.

Synopsis:

Bravely and fearlessly, Ramona Quimby approaches first grade, but in short order she's upset by her mother's return to work, a teacher who doesn't understand her, and what appear to be monsters under the bed. What else could possibly go wrong?

Well, plenty. Whether she's proudly defending older sister Beezus from the taunts of sixth-grade boys or enduring a copycat classmate, Ramona has never felt so misunderstood. Will she give in to her frights—or will she exhibit the spunk her family warmly believes she possesses?

Beverly Cleary draws a loving portrait of a little girl learning to face down her fears. With lively new illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers, this vibrant edition of Ramona the Brave is a delight.
