The further adventures of the Quimby family as Ramona enters the third grade.
Now that she's eight years old, Ramona feels quite grown-up--she takes the bus to school all by herself, she helps her older sister, Beezus, whip up an "interesting" dinner, and she's even trying hard to be nice to her friend Howie's pesky younger sister, Willa Jean. Because she's been feeling so grown up, Ramona is particularly upset when she she overhears her teacher calling her a "little showoff." Will Ramona be known as "Ramona the Pest" all her life? Occasional BW drawings accompany the text. A 1982 Newbery Honor book.
