really liked it
Read in February, 2012

I have an amazing, beautiful, old copy of Beezus and Ramona that I scored at a library book sale. I adore it, and decided to give it a reread, as I haven't visited with Ramona in forever. Can you believe this--I completely forgot the first book in the Ramona series is told from her older sister's point-of-view. Ramona is only four, and while she's just as charming and adorable as usual, four is very different from the Ramona I remember (Age 8!). What I'm saying is that I appreciated and enjoyed that this story was from the pov of her older, practical sister.

Ramona bounces around wearing her rabbit ears (see the book cover), scribbles in library books, busts in on an art class to draw her imaginary pet Ralph, eats just one bite out of all the apples, invites all of her friends over for a party, and does all sorts of little girl antics. Beezus is so sweet and patient, sometimes getting understandably frustrated with her little sister, but usually just showing her love for Ramona. And since we all love Ramona, that's such a sweet place to start this series that I can't wait to read the rest.
