Two cassettes / 2 hours 5 minutes

Mr. Quinby's going to college, Mrs. Quinby's going to work.  Now that Ramona is eight, she can go to a new school with a new teacher and ride the bus all by herself.  But after school she has to stay with Grandmother Kemp and be nice to that bratty little Willa Jean until Beezus--who's tempermental enough to ruin anyone's day--comes to take her home.  Life isn't as easy for Ramona as it used to be.  All the Quimbys have to adjust, and Ramona gets her chance to prove that she's "big enough for her family to depend on."

Product Description

From Amazon

From the first day of third grade, when Ramona Quimby meets her eventual nemesis Yard Ape, life moves on at its usual wild pace--usual for the boisterous Ramona, that is. Soon she is accidentally squashing a raw egg into her hair at the school cafeteria, being forced to play Uncle Rat with her annoying young neighbor, and, worst of all, throwing up in her classroom. The responsibilities of an 8-year-old are sometimes daunting, especially in a family that is trying to squeak by while the father goes back to school. But Ramona is full of too much vim and vigor to ever be down for long.

In her second Newbery Honor Book about Ramona (the first was Ramona and Her Father), Beverly Cleary presents another slice of the Quimby family life. Author of more than two dozen children's books, Cleary has a true knack for understanding the tangle of thoughts and emotions in a child's mind and heart. Empathic, witty, and astute, she has earned many other awards, including the Newbery Medal for Dear Mr. Henshaw. Alan Tiegreen's clever line drawings have charmed countless readers of Cleary's books over the years, and his style is now inextricably tied to hers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny Book June 10 2011
By Ms H
Format:Audio CD
Ramona is so funny and clever for kids to read. She is very excited to go to her new school but not everything turns out the way she thought it would. Her dad really needs peace and quiet. Her mother always has a difficult time with Ramona and her sister Beezus. Beezus always wants what she likes best and wants to get everything her way and so does Ramona. This always causes trouble. I have a question for the author - why did Ramona care so much about her Dad's eraser? Maybe she cared so much about it because it was supposed to give her good luck. Find out what happens to the eraser when you read this book! Ramona Quimby is a good book because kids learn to be strong and to stand up for themselves. Ramona is a very good character, not too boring and very mischievous. One of my favourite parts is when Ramona throws up!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ramona Quimby Age Eight--Read it! April 21 2004

Ramona Quimby Age Eight
In the book Ramona Quimby Age 8 Beverly Cleary tells the life of Ramona. Ramona is a short brown haired, brown eyed eight year living in the city. In the beginning Ramona had the first day of third grade. After school Ramona had to go to Howie her preschool friend's house to play. Pretty soon she got bored of going to Howie's house. Later, Ramona got an egg dropped on her head in the cafeteria. Ramona also threw up and had to go home. I would recommend this book for ages 7 and up. There is no violence in this book. It really is a great book and the ending is very exciting.

Ramona Quimby, Age 8 is a great book. The book is about a girl named Ramona, her sister, Beezus, and her mom and dad. Ramona and her sister attend school like any other boy or girl. Ramona has interesting things happen to her at school. Once, she cracked a raw-egg on her head while she was following a school fad. She has an average family and a normal life. Her family isn't rich, but they get along just fine. They fight sometimes, but they work it out. Read the book to find out more about their family and their lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ryan S, Age 10 reviews Ramona Quimby, Age 8 March 16 2003
This was a great book because it is about a girl and some of the things that happen to her during 3rd grade. Her dad used to be a check out person at the grocery store, now he is going back to college. Her mom works at a doctors office. Her older sister Beezus just started middle school. Money is tight in the Quimby house and Ramona and Beezus try to help out as much as they can. Some bad things happen to Ramona. One day at lunch she cracks an egg against her haed and realizes that it is not hard boiled and it meeses up her hair. The she gets sick and throws up all over her desk at school. The Quimby's car gets sick and needs a new transmission and it costs a lot of money. One rainy Sunday tha Quimbys decide to go to Whopperburger for dinner and a nice old man pays for their dinner. They realize that they may not have money but they sure do have love! Ramona Quimby, AGe 8 is a good book for kids to read becuase a lot of the same things that happen to Ramona could happen to us!

5.0 out of 5 stars Trip Down Memory Lane Jan. 9 2003
By A Customer
My 8 year old son and I read together about 3 hours a week and this book is definitely one of the most touching books in the Ramona series. We've both grown to love Ramona Quimby. In fact, my son gasped when we read about Ramona overhearing her teacher, Mrs. Whaley, calling her a nuisance and couldn't believe anyone could say anything mean about poor Ramona. Beverly Cleary has a knack for expressing Ramona's thoughts in a way that reminds adults about how great an impact our words and actions have on children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Sept. 2 2002
By Faye
A characteristically enjoyable Ramona book. Obviously Beverly Cleary has never forgotten what it's like to be a kid. She's very good at showing that children have feelings and thoughts of their own and how children can be both petty and noble. Also, Cleary never talks down to her young readers, using such words as "reflect" and "apparent," which not all grade-schoolers might be familiar with. I think her books are very aspirational, showing children that they can be more than they are. Ramona, to me, is the embodiment of aspiration, with her creativity, imagination, and talent for self-actualization. When I have children I will have them read all the Ramona books, especially my daughters. I want them to read about girls who are strong and self-reliant. I liked this book because it introduced the character of Yard Ape, who is described as "sturdy" and "smart and lively," the perfect foil to Ramona herself. I must say I didn't see why this book got a Newbery Honor; I enjoyed other books in the series more, like Ramona and Her Mother, and the other Newbery Honor book, Ramona and Her Father. But I still enjoyed this book a lot and would recommend it to readers of all ages.

I loved this book as a child. My mother bought it for me when I was 8 and had pneumonia, so I definitely related to the part when she threw up in the classroom (as I almost did). Ramona was always a character that I could identify with--being the younger sister, having to go to the neighbor's house to go to school, doing something stupid in public (remember when she broke the egg in the school cafeteria and it went in her hair?) and being embarrassed by it. I would definitely recommend this book to any child because as I said, Ramona Quimby is a character that almost any girl little girl who is boisterous and outgoing as she is could relate to.
