Beezus and Ramona
The first book in the Ramona series, Beezus & Ramona explores the special - although sometimes difficult - relationship between sisters. Ramona is four years old and just can't understand why Beezus doesn't want to read The Littlest Steam Shovel to her for the one hundreth time, or why it's a problem to invite her whole nursery class over for a party without asking Mother first. Most days, nine-year-old Beezus simply wishes Ramona would disappear. Using her trademark humor and warmth, Beverly Cleary shows it's all part of life on Klickitat Street!
