Ramona Quimby is back.  Now she's nine, in the fourth grade and has a new baby sister, Roberta.  Her old friends are back, too - Howie, Danny  the Yard Ape, and Janet.  Ramona still has to play with awful Susan.  Now her sister Beezus is Beatrice and in high school.  There are many challenges in fourth grade - spelling, being more responsible, writing better.  Sometimes Ramona doesn't fulfill her duties.  The results are hilarious and heart warming and very real.  If you liked the other Ramona books, you will love this one; if you haven't read a Ramona book, this is an excellent introduction to a warm and funny family.  (Jeannie Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards)
