Ramona Ouimby isn't really a pest. The people who call her a pest are always bigger and so they can be unfair It's just that Ramona is not a slowpoke grownup. She is a girl who cannot wait. Life is so interesting she has to find out what will happen next.

What happens next in this story? Ramona enters kindergarten! She likes most parts of it—singing that song about the "dawnzer lee light" every morning, bringing her doll Chevrolet (named for her aunt's car) for Show and Tell, boing-boinging Susan's cork- screw curls during recess. Yes, school is fun. - . until something hap- pens and Ramona almost becomes the world's first kindergarten dropout!

Work Description

Ramona the Pest, by Beverly Cleary, is the second book of the Ramona series and the first to focus on Ramona Quimby as the protagonist. This children's book chronicles the adventures of Ramona's first few months at kindergarten. The book's title is derived from the characterization of Ramona as a "pest" by many, including her older sister Beatrice, known as "Beezus." Ramona the Pest was first published in 1968 and featured illustrations by Louis Darling.

In 2012 it was ranked number 24 on a list of the top 100 children's novels published by School Library Journal.
