For a limited time HarperCollins is providing BEEZUS AND RAMONA by Beverly Cleary free online. The story told from older sister Beezus’ viewpoint highlights the annoying antics of young Ramona.
I love the new illustrations as well by Tracy Dockray. The lively artwork brings this classic kids’ lit to life for another generation of young readers. And I predict once you’ve read one Beezus and Ramona book–just like eating potato chips–one will not be enough.
But rest assured, there are plenty more of Ms. Cleary’s books to enjoy. One of my favorites is DEAR MR. HENSHAW–about a troubled boy reaching out through a series of letters to his favorite author.
And please do read THE MOUSE AND THE MOTORCYCLE with adventurous Ralph the mouse and his notorious motorcyle.
