KIRKUS REVIEW

Still another set of adventures about the members of the Henry Huggins' contingent turns the spotlight on "Beezus", (Beatrice Quimby) and her younger sister Ramona. Beezus really goes through the mill with Ramona, who for most of this book, is in her charge. Four-year-old Ramona of course always has an answer for everything, sometimes a surprisingly successful one. A few of the things that happen to her and desperately sensible Beezus include a marked up library book, a tussle with Ribsy- Henry's famous dog- a session in art class where Ramona comes off with literally flying colors, etc. Miss Cleary's wit is accurate and irresistible.
