One of my all-time favorite characters from children's literature is Ramona Geraldine Quimby. It was such fun reading Beverly Cleary's books about Ramona Q. to my elementary students. They all loved and related to the spunky, creative character who often got herself into mischief without meaning to. The boys liked her just as much as the girls. Ramona came alive for them. It was like she was one of their classmates. My students pestered their parents to take them to the book store so that they could get their own copies of Cleary's books. I hope Hollywood did a good job of bringing the story of Ramona and her family to the big screen.
