Beverly Cleary has given books to each member of the Quimby household except Mrs. Quimby.
Now she gets her turn at last in a story that hits the high and low points of a working mother's life
as seen from Ramona's seven-and-a-half-year-old viewpoint. Inevitably domestic tensions, not
without their amusing side, occasionally arise. Mr. and Mrs. Quimby sometimes forget who is
to do what, as when the Crock-Pot is not plugged in and dinner remains uncooked. Beezus
acquires a ludicrous teased hairdo at the student body shop while Ramona gets a becoming pixie
haircut. Ramona, who feels unloved, takes to twitching her nose like a rabbit in a cozy picture
book until her teacher becomes concerned that something is making her nervous. Yet Ramona is

at the peak of her powers
