Book Title: Beezus and Romona

Book Summary: Beezus and Ramona is a character driven 3rd grade chapter book that focuses on Beezus Quimby, the 9-year-old sister of 4-year-old Ramona Quimby.  The book is essentially a series of vignettes depicting the relationship between the two sisters, in which Ramona’s mischief features prominently.  The book is different from the other books in the Ramona series in that Beezus is the protagonist instead of Ramona.  Thus, the book is essentially a portrait of a young sibling relationship—especially its challenges—from the perspective of an older sibling.
