She's in the 3rd grade at a new school. . .
and she still doesn't have her own bike.
She's also stuck in after school care with the cold Mrs. Kemp and the annoying Willa Jean. Her older sister's in the heart of hormonal angst, and her father's taking classes in college, resulting in two parents who are stressed about money.
So, when Ramona accidentally overhears her teacher call her a “show-off” and a “nuisance,” she doesn't know what to do. She can't tur ...more

(Though first let me get out of the way the fact that this IS unquestionably a delightful book, as is the whole Ramona series up to this point.

The book is still hilarious, but it's an entirely different set of jokes that cracked me up. The book is thick with a deadpan humor that's obviously meant to appeal solely to adults. Mad props to Beverly Cleary for writing something that is literally fun for all ages.
On the darker side, I had forgotten ho ...more
This is a great read!
There is a passage later in the book when Ramona asks her father what he's studying in college and he answers that he's studying Child Psychology and Development. In other words, he's studying ...more
خیلی خیلی از خوندنشون لذت بردم. کتابها با اینکه در غالب داستان برای بچهها نوشته شده بود ولی در اصل روانشناسی کودک بود. بعد از خوندن این سری کتابها دیدم نسبت به دنیای بچهها و کارهایی که میکنند عوض شد. فکر میکنم از بعد از اون روابطم هم با بچهها بهتر شده. از سری کتابهایی هستند که حتما باز هم میخونمشون. ...more
The last chapter, though, where the old man pays for the family's dinner out made me D:
I love, seriously love, that money comes up over and over. We never see this thing in kid lit today.
