I LOVED this book when I was a kid. I enjoyed the Ramona books, and I loved the TV show (Sarah Polley was the *perfect* Ramona!) so this book was beyond amazing for me. I loved the show so much that when I read this book, I could remember every detail about every scene they talked about. Loved, loved, loved this book! I read it over and over. And over.
